We have reached the end of the first day of Euro 2008. I must say it wasn't a start i shall remember. But it is a start and a good one for Portugal and Czech Republic.
The first game was Switzerland vs. Czech Republic
After a boring first half, Switzerland's main man was injured after a crunching tackle. The football started to pick up. With more of a battle between the two teams it looked like 0-0 draw. This was until the 71st minute when Switzerland's opening day party was crushed by Czech substitute Václav Svěrkoš. Switzerland nearly saved it from a powerful shot off the underside of the crossbar from Jonathon Vonthalen.
The second game saw Turkey take on Portugal. This game also picked up in the second half with a much more of a midfield battle. Turkey did put up a fight but Portugal were too strong and won the game by two goals by Pepe and a late goal by Raul Meireles. Portugal have shown they are in form and have put out a powerful statement to the rest of the teams in Euro 2008.
