Saturday/ The Euro Cup 2012

I love this map with the stadiums. It shows some cities in the Ukraine that I have never heard of!

Poland and the Ukraine are co-hosting the Euro Cup 2012 soccer event that started Friday night.   CCTV1 transmitted the Netherlands-Denmark match live last night.  I watched until the Danes got the first goal in the 24th minute and then went to sleep .. turned out that was the only goal.  ‘Slordig Oranje hard onderuit’ (Sloppy Orange team fell down hard’) says Dutch paper Volkskrant on-line.   But they point out that the Orange team lost their first-round match in 1988 against Russia and then went on the win the Cup.   So all is not lost for the Dutch?
