EURO 2012: Guus Hiddink works his magic for Russia

Manager Guus Hiddink’s tactics steered Russia into their first victory in the EURO 2012 when his team won 4-1 against fancied Czech Republic. Russia wasted no time to show their intention at this years’ EURO when A. Dzagoev scored in the 15th minute.

Nine minutes later R. Shirokov doubled Russia’s tally before Czech Republic’s V. Pilar closed down the gap seven minutes after half time. Russia killed any Czech Rupulic’s resurgence with two more goals from Dzagoev and R. Pavlyuchenko to put Russia in the lead of Group A.

In an earlier match, host Poland failed to capitalized on their home advantage after sharing points with 2006 champions Greece. Poland’s goal was scored by R. Lewandowski while Greece’s goal was scored by D. Salpingidis. The game was marred by two red cards to W. Szczesny and S. Papastathopoulos.
