Greece versus the Czech Republic is the pairs second match of the Euro2012 group stages. Played at the Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw, Poland, both teams will be keen to get three points.
Greece won this competition in 2004 and qualified for this year's finals without losing a game and finishing ahead of Croatia in qualification. The Czech Republic were finalists at Webley in 1996 but made heavy whether of qualifying in 2012, beating Montenegro in a two legged play-off.
The Greeks battled back to draw 1-1 with co-hosts Poland in the first match on Friday, but may feel aggrieved they didn't take all three points after missing a second half penalty and having a man harshly sent off. The Czech's on the other hand will be keen to bounce back from their opening day defeat to Russia.
