Euro 2012: Russia vs. Czech Republic

One thing that makes the European Championship great? Having a photographer to capture Andrey Arshavin at every training session. Forty-three years after meeting in the Prague streets, the Russians and Czechs meet in Poland, a country their ancestors once partitioned. Eastern European history!

Russia has a stolid CSKA Moscow defensive base and Zenit St. Petersburg’s flowing counterattack. The Czechs have a team that, barring Petr Cech, looked far more formidable in 2004. Neither team has a reliable goalscorer.
