09 June 2012 11:16

Poland's media on Saturday hailed "half a victory" after the 1-1 draw with Greece.

"Half a victory," read the headline in the Gazeta Wyborcza daily, while the tabloid Super Express said on its front page: "Thanks, guys!"

The Gazeta said the match was a "see-saw of crazy emotions: two red cards, a penalty save and a disallowed goal. These aren't typical of an opening match. Incredible. The footballing gods must be mad".

Nasz Dziennik added: "The match didn't disappoint. The red and whites (Poland) didn't either. In long passages of play, they played just as we hoped they would. In short, it was a worthy opener for the tournament."
