Watched the first game, it could have gone either way really, the Iceland striker had two clear chances brilliantly saved. Then one mistake came and then they gave away the penalty and in the end, Iceland were struggling. Probably a deserved win for Belarus.

So far....

60' Denmark 0:1 Switzerland

The hosts can barely find any openings. Top stuff by the Swiss, very organized.

Sommer makes 3 brilliant saves to deny Denmark a goal. It's not their night it seems.

Bille has just had a goal disallowed for Denmark, just slightly offside.

FT Denmark 0:1 Switzerland (X. Shaqiri 48')

Deserved win for a very organized Swiss team, but Denmark can consider themselves unlucky with a brilliant performance from Sommer and a close offside decision against them.

1 Belarus 1 1 0 0 2 0 +2 3
2 Switzerland 1 1 0 0 1 0 +1 3
3 Denmark 1 0 0 1 0 1 -1 0
4 Iceland 1 0 0 1 0 2 -2 0

I watched a bit of the Belarus and Iceland game and as you said already, it could've gone either way. I don't know why but I was just rooting for Iceland (maybe cuz I like pulling for underdogs if you could call them that).

Same goes for the other game.It was only 1-0. I say that Switzerland will win this group. I think Denmark could take second with Belarus as a close third.

Tomorrow games are in group B. They are:

Czech Republic vs. Ukraine
Spain vs. England

My predictions:

Czech Rep. 1-1 Ukraine
Spain 2-1 England.

I say Spain and England take first and second respectively with tomorrows game being the deciding factor for their position.

Quiet game so far between Czechs and Ukraine, no serious attempts for a goal just yet.

Once again, another wonderful sequence of passing and creating space, leaving Dockal unmarked and he coolly slots it in from the edge of the area. 2-0.

56' Czech Republic 2:0 Ukraine

Butko clears a Celustka header off the line. Almost a third goal.

Substitute Biliy places a shot into the top corner. Game on, but little time left.

Sturridge had a toe-poked effort brilliantly saved by de Gea. England are getting chances, but the Herrera goal separates the two sides.

Halftime - Spain 1:0 England

Herrera scored the goal for Spain, correct?
