Czech Republic is still alive: Bilek team defeats 2-1 Greece and is still in race for the qualification to quarter-finals. The match played in Wroclaw is decided in the first ten minutes: Czechs scores after 180” with Jiracek, served by Plasil, and after six minutes with Pilar who scores his second goal in Euro 2012 after a cross of Gebre Selassie. Greece reaction is generous but little dangerous for Czechs: Gekas reopens the match at the beginning of the second half (awful mistake of Cech) but Greek team is unable to create other opportunities to score. And the elimination is near.
