Not that I know of. Possibly Sky but England not involved so maybe not.

Anthony O'Connor scored twice as Ireland beat Greece 2-1 and the Czech Republic beat Romania 3-1. Makes Saturday extra interesting.

Greece beat Romania 1-0 leaving the hosts without a goal or a point and playing for nothing but pride against Ireland.

Greece on the other hand are level on points, goal difference and goals scored with Ireland and in with a chance for a semi final spot if they beat the Czech Republic.

Still all to play for.

So that's how they finished and it means Ireland through to the semi finals, probably against Spain but that'll be decided in a matter of hours.
