Czechs lead Greece 2-0 at halftime at Euro 2012
Petr Jiracek and Vaclav Pilar scored in the first six minutes
Tuesday to give the Czech Republic a 2-0 lead over Greece at
halftime at the European Championship.
The Czechs piled early pressure on Greece, which played without
two key central defenders.
Jiracek shot the ball past Greece goalkeeper Costas Chalkias in
the third minute after a pass from Tomas Hubschmann sliced through
the Greek defense. Three minutes later, Pilar scored his second
goal of the tournament, beating Greek defenders to a ball sent
across the goal by Czech Republic defender Theodor Gebre
Giorgos Fotakis headed a shot past Czech Republic goalkeeper
Petr Cech in the 41st but it was ruled offside.
