Spain, of course are the favourites to lift the trophy in Poland and Ukraine and they showed no sign of letting their recent domination of international football stop in qualifying where they won all of their matches.
This tournament is where Vicente Del Bosque’s squad will be massively tested as they go into the competition without David Villa and Carles Puyol through injury. It is now time for some of the generation to step up to the plate.
Holland and Germany are two of the favourites which is no surprise given the array of talent they have in their squad. They will be hoping that Spain’s injuries could boost their chances of going all the way.
Both sides have had disappointing results in recent friendly matches though so will be looking for a win in their final match before the competition to take some confidence and momentum into their first group game.
France are a much talked about contender and have gone somewhat under that radar with regards to how much they have been spoken about.
Laurent Blanc seems to be installing a young, hungry and eager to impress side and they have not been beaten in 20 matches so are one of the form sides in the whole tournament.
With the likes of Karim Benzema, Samir Nasri and Frank Ribery, France have exciting attacking talent. The experience of Patrice Evra and Alou Diarra looks to add a perfect balance to the team. You can back them to win Euro 2012 at 12/1
Croatia are a big outsider that could have a successful championships. They are 50/1 to lift the trophy.
It will be Slaven Bilic’s last competition in charge of the side and he will be looking to finish on a high. With Luca Modric in midfield, Croatia have one of the best play makers in Europe at their disposal.
They will look at what Greece did back in 2004 when they won the competition and look to emulate that.
Whatever happens it is sure to be an enthralling few weeks in Poland and Ukraine and it all starts on Friday 8th June.
