Let's talk about Euro 2012

Postby Sawyer5665 on Mon Jul 18, 2011 10:20 pm

Ok, so I have soccer on the brain still, and the club season is still about a month away...and there's nothing there to talk about except transfers....AND I've been watching lots of international soccer lately....COPA America, Women's World Cup, Under 17 world CUp, and the CONCACAF Gold Cup..Anyway, I thought I'd start a conversation to get talk going about Euro 2012.

So, who's the favorite to win Euro next summer? I think Spain has got to be the early favorite, but I like Germany's chances for this and the next World Cup.

My list for Euro 2012:

1. Spain
2. Germany
3. Portugal
4. Netherlands
5. France

I think France will bounce back from the horror show that was their 2010 World Cup. I know they are a long shot to win, but I think they will make a showing...

I think England are in with an excellent chance.... LOL :rofl: No, no, I can't keep that going.

I think Spain will win, with relative ease. Germany are the only team I see challenging. :)

I just can't get over Group A. It's very weak compared to the rest....especially Group B. That's a killer group.

I think Russia and Czech Republic will advance from Group A. As for the others, I think England and France make it out of Group D. Group C will see Spain and Italy advance. Group B is tough to predict. I think Germany is a nicegroup of young talent. I thought they were amazing at WC 2010. I think they are maturing and will be very good in this tourney. Portugal is good, but I don't think they will be making it out. I think the Netherlands will finish 2nd in this group. So, for now my predictions:

Russia
Czech Republic
Germany
Netherlands
Spain
Italy (but I'll be rooting for Ireland to make it)
England
France

Spain beats Germany 3-2 in the final. There it is. :cool:

From Group A - Russia and meh there all as average as each other so I'll throw in the hosts Poland.
From Group B - Very tough group but I like Germany and Holland to come out of it.
From Group C - Spain and Italy but I expect Ireland to give Italy a tough game.
From Group D - England and France.

So the quarter finals..
Russia vs Holland
Germany vs Poland
Spain vs France
England vs Italy

Semi Finals
Holland vs Spain
Germany vs England

Final
Spain vs Germany - Although could just as easily be Holland vs England

I actually like Germany to win this but any of the final 4 could easily do it.. Gonna be interesting :hmm:
