Georgina Turner: Czech Republic, Greece move to quarters after Day 9

The phrase "a turn up for the books" came about to describe a bookmaker's good fortune when an unbacked horse won a race, but Saturday's Group A action could be the definition to serve future generations. At the start of the day Russia -- by an easy consensus the strongest team in the group -- topped a table propped up by Greece, with the much-fancied Poland just a point behind Czech Republic in the middle. By its end, the Czechs had moved to the top of the group and progressed with a negative goal difference, and Greece had beaten Russia to follow them through in second.
