Hi, my-blogmedia readers. Here are the result of Euro 2008 day 2. Enjoy.
Croatia opened their Euro 2008 account with a predictable but unconvincing 1-0 victory over co-hosts Austria at the Ernst-Happel Stadium here in Vienna on Sunday.
It took only four minutes for Austria to be exposed as the minnows that they are in this competition as Rene Aufhauser clumsily bundled over Ivica Olic in the box.
Middlesbrough defender Emanuel Pogatetz was booked for protesting over-zealously but there was little doubt that referee Pieter Vink from the Netherlands had got it spot on.
So too did new Tottenham signing Luka Modric, who calmly slotted the ball down the middle as former Sunderland goalkeeper Jurgen Macho dived to his right.
While, in the same day, three-time European champions Germany beat Poland 2-0 in their Euro 2008 Group B opening match here on Sunday.
Lukas Podolski scored the opener in the 20th minute and then clinched the win on 72 minutes.The Polish-born striker Lukas Podolski scored in each half as Germany made an impressive start in Group B.
