After the match Czech republic vs Greece and Greece lost, Poland must get point (at least 1 point) for securing their position in table..
Russia of course realize too, that they still need winning for ensuring their step to the next stage...
like their star player (Alan Dzagoev) say that Russia must win in the game (against The host, Poland) for ensuring their step..
Starting line up
Poland: Tyton, Piszczek, Wasilewski, Perquis, Boenisch, Dudka (Mierzejewski 74'), Polanski (Matuszczyk 84'), Blaszczykowski, Murawski, Obraniak (Brozek 90'), Lewandowski
Russia: Malafeev, Aniukov, Berezutsky, Ignashevich, Zhirkov, Shirokov, Denisov, Zyryanov, Dzagoev (Izmailov 79'), Kerzhakov (Pavlyuchenko 70'), Arshavin
Without the main goalkeeper, poland put their second goalkeeper, tyton which play good in the first game..Lewandowski still become the hope for scoring. Russia still use 3 forward , Alexander Kerzhakov, Andre Arshavin and the rising star Alan Dzagoev
Poland start the game with good when they get chance for scoring by Sebastian Boenisch header..but Malafeev can save it...4 minutes later, Robert Lewandowski get chance but his shooting is far away..Poland can score by Eugen Polanski, but the referee says that he is offside..
With many fans which support the host, make Poland play different with their first game (Maybe they think if they lost, their opportunity for playing next step is over)..They make russia can`t develop their best game..
but with one attack, Russia can lead in minute 37 by header of Alan Dzagoev which can change the ball direction of Andre arshavin free kick and make Tyton can`t do anything for stop it..
Poland 0- Russia 1
Poland react quickly when Blaszcykowski shoot but Malafeev once again save russia...
Half time : Poland 0 - Russia 1
Poland take initiative in the second half...This is their last chance..so they must make draw..(Maybe it is the suggestion from Poland coach)
After pressuring, Poland can draw in minute 57. Blaszcykowski shoot the ball by his left foot and Malafeev can`t stop it..
Poland 1- Russia 1
Until the final whistle, the result is still 1-1 for both of the team
I think it is fair result for Russia and Poland..
with the result and the result of Czech republic vs Greece match, make Russia lead the table with 4 points, Czech Republic 3 points, the host Poland with 2 points and Greece only get 1 point.
Mathematically, Russia maybe get advantages from this situation even it is not secure for them to be winner in this group.. And with mathematically calculation too, greece is hard for reaching their next step..With Russia is their last opponent and Russia only need 1 point, Greece maybe must say Goodbye to this tournament..Czech Republic and Poland still had chance if they can win their last game (match Czech Republic vs Poland) whether any result from match Greece vs Russia..
In this group A, Alan Dzagoev become the top scorer with 3 goals. He had chance for adding his goal in last game of Russia (match against Greece)....
And maybe after the Euro cup 2012 tournament, Alan Dzagoev can be a hot target from many bigger European club like Andrea Arshavin situation after Euro cup 2008..We`ll see..
