Poland 0 - 2 Germany
Well I guess the results were predictable!
Austria played well after giving a way a penalty so early on but you have to say that Luka Modric, the Tottenham bound player, looked a class act for Croatia. A nervy start for the victors of the Three Lions, but I expect them to improve.
As for the Germans - it is hard to belive that they had failed to win a European Championship Finals game since 1996. They were clinical and strong across the pitch. The Poles equipped themselves well and gave the Germans some scares but overall you had to say the three time winners were looking good for their favourite status. Podolski may not have had the best club season, but if he keeps up these performances he'll be up for player of the tournament.
