2244:So there you have it. Greece beating Russia is the shock result of the evening and the Greeks are jubilant in the National Stadium. Russia had so much of the ball but clear cut chances were few and far between, Alan Dzagoev going closest with a glancing header. The Russian fans are in tears but their pain is nothing compared to that of co host Poland. The players applaud their fans, who created such a vociferous atmosphere before kick off but now, all the cheers comes from the Czech corner of the stadium. They are through to the last eight with Greece.
2224: Russia coach Dick Advocaat is throwing everything at Greece now. Pavel Progebnyak and Marat Izmailov have been brought on, joining Roman Pavlyuchenko in a front three for Russia in a desperate attempt to score and remain in the competition.
2220: Nervous times for Poland fans. Their side has fifteen minutes to score twice and remain in the tournament. They are losing 1-0 thanks to that Petr Jiracek goal for the Czech Republic and the co host must win to go through.
