^My money's on Germany. They are always strong and also from what I've read, they are the bookies favourites as well..

Spain will fail once again. Italy might be strong.. Somehow can't see France succeeding this year, but I thought the same before the last World cup and they were still in the finals..

Outside of these four, I can see Portugal succeeding. They have one the best squads in the tournament and usually do well.. The same goes with Holland.

Also, as a Finn, I have to say that Swedes will suck.

My wild card is Croatia, they were really strong in the qualifiers and have a good squad. Still, like said, Germany is my favourite to win.

think about the last european cup in 2004 ... Greece was the winning team ... plus , Sweden pushed out italy of the competition with an amazing goal of Zlatan Ibrahimovic ... and Romania is a solid team with players like Chivu or Adrian Mutu. Russia got a lot of young players from Zenit , the team who won the uefa cup this year , I don't think they will win the cup , but these teams are tough competitors

Absolute travesty England didn't qualify, but thats debate been milked to death!!!

So as my home nation is not the running, i've chosen to support ITALY as my surrogate team. I just love Italy defensive backline , nesta canavarro, zambrotta
absolute brilliant players. The style of football may not be to the liking of everybody but being the right pessimist sad( it comes with being a centerback) i thinks its perfect the group of player they have.

Anywho, my frontrunners for the Euros are obviously ITALY, PORTUGAL, FRANCE AND SPAIN.

Shit forgot Netherland!!!

that was last world cup. Italy isn't as good anymore and your guys are kinda old now. nobody expects you to do that great in this tournament but like the last world cup, you can surprise us.

Have any of you guys actually seen Portugal play recently. The players they have are amazing, but they struggled in their group stage against weaker teams. They didn't dominate how they were expected.

I've got Portugal, Spain, France and Russia as the Cinderella for the top four teams. I've been wrong before though.

Gonna be cheering on Poland. If they get knocked out, then my second choices are Holland or the Czech Republic.

It will be Spains year.

Torres will step it up, their midfield is well built and they have a solid defence.

I want Russia or Holland to win it however.

How many times have you watched Russia play? No more than what, 3 times tops.

Guus Hiddink is a world class coach, they are the most organised side and have a fair amount of good players, namely Ignashevich, Arshavin, Sychev and Kerzahkov.

Who won it four years ago? Greece ffs, and they deserved it. NOONE gave them a chance.

spain has alot of wins confidence & the best keeper in the world, torres is a beast but i still like david villa better. but i think coaching and tactics will play a part. thats why i think germany will win joachim low is a genius and i think if it comes to a spain v germany final low will outcoach aragones. which sucks since m spanish -basque but germany is strong!

as for the other teams i like russia and especially croatia. france and italy i think will have bad tournaments and finally come to grips with their team being too old. they have the young talent to replace their teams so its no biggie.

portugal will fizzle out i think in the quarterfinals just because they have no real strikers at all. scolari better play ronaldo behind the striker and not a wing if he wants to survive. id play nani and quaresma on the wings. netherlands defense will be their undoing they wont be able to help vandersar at all at the back.

My tradition in sports is to always root for whoever, not anyone though... The best country I believe is Spain, but my Cinderella teams are Turkey, Switzerland, and the netherlands. I think these teams can go past the 1st round and they can make some big upsets.

look at it this year where Sweden isn't even half the teams they were the last go around. Spain might just be the strongest but Germany has the more experienced players and keepers. i feel it's between Spain and Germany
