Greece Vs. Czech Republic, Euro 2012: Czechs 2-0 Ahead After 10 Minutes

The narrative tells us that Greece are an ultra-defensive team. The narrative is wrong. Greece are an ultra bad team. You can tell because a) they can't defend worth beans and b) they play Georgios Samara in attack. The first point of the previous sentence has been demonstrated pretty thoroughly by the Czech Republic, who scored twice in the opening six minutes, banishing the memories of their humiliation by Russia in the process.

The first goal game exactly two minutes and twenty seconds in as a run from Petr Jirocek completely baffled the Greek defence, allowing Tomas Hubschman to play in an inch-perfect through ball that Jirocek finished past a stranded Kostas Chalkias. Tomas Rosicky obviously felt as though he was missing out on the through-ball party, because three minutes later her played in a brilliant pass to Theodor Gebre Selassie, who blitzed beyond Jose Holebas and crossed for Vaclav Pilar to scramble home.

So, yeah. 2-0. Good luck with that, Greece.
