Not hugely excited about this early game but the other two could be belters.

Is there a worse CB in the tournament than Djourou?

And has there been a worse miss in the tournament than Milik's?

Great start.

I hate being unsociable on a Saturday but there is no way I'm missing the 5pm and 8pm games.

Poland after ET, Wales and Croatia for me.

Why do Poland persist with having Milik getting in Lewandowski's way with their daft 442.
Probably got the world's best striker and they are playing him in a system he is isn't used to. Almost worse than what we are doing with Rooney.

If you're Poland why wouldn't you build your team around his strengths? They've done well up until now, they'd be laughing if they could actually get him in to space.

Lewa was top goal scorer, 13 in 10 if I remember correctly, in qualifying once Nawalka swapped to 442 after the mess of 2012 Euros. His partnership with Milik was excellent up until this comp. Now Milik has become the most frustrating player at the Euros, missed two clear cut chances today, two against Germany, could have scored three agains NI. I don't understand how he has become such a crap finisher. He is really letting this Poland side down.

Ibra and Aguero could be representing Gibraltar and BC would still refuse to play anything remotely resembling 4-4-2
