Ten-man Greece came
from behind and had a penalty saved as their Group A opener with Poland
ended in a dramatic 1-1 draw in Warsaw.

Poland started brightly and Robert Lewandowski gave the co-hosts a
deserved lead when heading home on 17 minutes from Jakub
Blaszczykowski's cross, with Greek keeper Kostas Chalkias all at sea.
task then got even harder shortly before the interval when Sokratis
Papastathopoulos was sent-off for two harsh yellow cards, the second
after Rafal Murawski fell to the ground.
But the 2004 champions
equalised on 51 minutes when substitute Dimitris Salpingidis scored from
close range after Polish keeper Wojciech Szczesny misjudged Vassilis
Torosidis' right-wing cross.
Szczesny's night then got even worse
when he caught Salpingidis as he was through on goal and was rightly
sent-off in the 69th minute.
But replacement keeper Przemyslaw
Tyton saved low to his left to deny Greek skipper Giorgos Karagounis
from the subsequent spot-kick as the Group A opener in the National
Stadium ended all-square.
Poland will be kicking themselves,
however, after throwing it away having gone in at half-time with a
one-goal lead and with Greece down to ten men.
