Poland does not manage to win Euro 2012 first match: one of the hosting nations has been recovered by Greece after having dominate first half. Lewandowski’s gol and the sending off of Papastathopoulos at the end of the first half seemed to have smooth the way to Polish team. However, Greek team manager Fernando Santos has been the real protagonist of the match: he has added Salpingidis at the beginning of the second half and Panathinaikos forward changed the match, scoring after six minutes and obtaining a penalty in the middle of second half: Polish goalkeeper Szczesny has been sent off, but Tyton, Poland reserve goalkeeper, has cleared the shot of Karagounis.
