Germany cruised to a comfortable 4-1 win over Greece to book their sport in the Euro 2012 semifinals. The result was not a surprise as Germany were heavy favorites and very few gave Greece a realistic chance to advance.

It was a decent start both sides as Germany dominated possession and chances while Greece were able to keep it scoreless.

Goals:
Lescott 30'
Nasri 39'

Welcome to the Roy Hodgson Era. A defensive set-up, limited ambition, a set play goal, and two solid lines of four retreating deeper and deeper as the match went on. England's full-backs mostly stayed in their own half, England's wide players rarely got ahead of the two out-and-out attackers, and Gerrard charged forward from deep to join the attack maybe twice.

"Who will be next in line?" is the question every Chelsea supporter will be asking after their club's Chairman and owner, Roman Abramovic, brought an end to the tenure of Andre Villas-Boas (AVB) as Chelsea manager.

The sacking hardly came as a surprise, AVB had been made a clear short priced favourite in the Premier League's Sack Race betting for some weeks and the continued wretched form of his team finally cost him his job, with the 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom seemingly the final straw.
