The group matches are almost over

The European Championship is already cruising at full speed ahead. The first day had its share of unbelievable surprises, the most important one being that the completion got halted by the rain. It rained cats and dogs, as Englishmen might say, and it was very difficult for most of the teams to play ball on a pool full with water.
Bad things are meant to disappear after a night, so the second day is on its way and for now, the sun is shining. Good reason for us to make a brief review of the results:
