Euro 08--Kinda Like The World Cup I Guess, Day 12
RUSSIA 2, SWEDEN 0
And finally, our quarterfinals are set. Good thing too, because they start today. Wouldn't want to have a quarterfinals without knowing whose playing in them would you?
Russia dominated this game as if they had poisoned the Swedes with some sort of radioactive compound, which they may have. Roman Pavluchenko scored for the Original Evil Empire, in the 24th minute, and Andrei Arshavin tallied early in the second half to put the game away.
This is the first time Russia has advanced out of the group stages since they were known as the Soviet Union. It's the same name change strategy that has worked so well for the Tampa Bay Rays this year.
SPAIN 2, GREECE 1
My God Greece, that was the worst title defense I've seen since Bob Backlund lost in 7 seconds to Diesel at Wrestlemania that one year. Way to suck.
GROUP D FINAL STANDINGS
* SPAIN 9 PTS
* RUSSIA 6
