Tonight's TV: Euro 2012 kicks off & Burn after reading
It's here, the day we've all been waiting for. Euro 2012 kicks off! The action begins from 4 O'clock as the opening ceremony takes place in Warsaw. And there's a little comedy accompaniment.
Main Event: Euro 2012 Live (LOIVE!), RTÉ 2, from 4pm
Poland v Greece (Kick-off 5.00pm) and Russia v Czech Republic (Kick-off 7.45pm). Bill O'Herlihy is joined by John Giles, Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady to present coverage of the opening ceremony in Warsaw, followed by the first two matches of the tournament. The first contest takes place in the Polish capital, as the joint hosts face the 2004 champions in a Group A clash at the National Stadium. Poland's passionate home fans will be expecting them to put in a stirring performance, but a victory in this encounter is far from assured. The Greeks finished at the top of their qualifying group ahead of Croatia, and have the greater pedigree in this competition. George Hamilton and Ronnie Whelan provide the commentary. Attention then turns to the Municipal Stadium in Wroclaw for the second Group A fixture. Russia, who reached the semi-finals four years ago, begin their third consecutive appearance at the European Championships by facing the Czech Republic, who have qualified for every staging of this tournament since the birth of their nation, following the split of Czechoslovakia. Stephen Alkin and Brian Kerr will provide the commentary on this encounter.
