    My early prediction is that Germany will win, though I can also see Spain, Netherlands or France winning :)

    If Ben Arfa and Cabaye make the final squad then I will be supporting France, also if selected want Tim Krul to do well

    The Euro is by far the most exciting tournament going in any sport. I really have enjoyed watching these through out the years and they have produced timeless classics.

    This Euro, By far the group of death as the call it is Group B, Consisting of Netherlands, Germany, Portugal and Denmark.

    The way i think it will go and see the semis as is this. I think Germany, Holland, France and Spain will be in the Semis.

    Germany, We all now about them and big tournaments they won't disappoint and i can see them going through. Very strong squad with the best goal Keeper in the world. They will be set up for the counter Attack in the Euros and will hit most teams like that. A good mixture of Youth and Experience, and what quality players they.

    Spain, European and and World champions. Very very strong team. We all know about there style of play and how well the keep the ball. They have the ability and players to rip any team apart. It's another team with some very talented youngsters coming through who have the ability of becoming top players, And who better to play with then the likes of Xavi. Iniesta, Busquets etc etc.

    Holland, What a team they are. Great experienced team who know how to play together. Out of all the countries in the world, i reckon Holland is the only consistent one at producing great sportsmen. Just look at them, Nearly every sport they play they are a top team, Look at there sportsmen down the years, Nothing other the greats. There football team now is very talented with lots of youngsters who can really show up on there day. An example of that is Ibrahim Afellay look how talented this kid is! He would get into any team but is benched for the Dutch! They now have a top keeper in Stecklenburg, which is a real bonus to there already very strong squad. People talk about Germany's counter attack play, But the Dutch destroyed Italy and France with counter attacks in Euro 2008 as Van Basten as manager. They play slightly different know but with there pace and team Counter attacks from these boys and your toast.

    France, Well many may say they won't be good enough and have lost it since Zidane has gone. They had a bad time in South Africa with the world cup because they of some internal problems with players going against there manager. But since then they have come back real strong and put a very good winning streak in. They are a very talented team with some real greats. Lots of people will right them off, But with the likes of Benzema, Valbuena, Malouda, Nasri, Diarra, Evra, Ben Arfa, Clichy, Sagna, Mexes, Ribery etc etc who would be stupid enough to do that?

    Personally i am a Holland fan, and can see them beating anyone with there team. Just have players in abundance and know how to play with each other. Lets not forget even though Spain won that WC Final Vs Holland, How unlcuky the Dutch were, there should have been a free kick before the goal and 2 (1-1 chances Robben missed).
    They are a very fit team so won't have any tiredness issues as other teams may like Spain. Infact Germany and Holland will be the 2 fittest teams in that tournament.

    I would write more but i'll leave it at that.

    Holland To Win! :)

    But don't rule out the other 3!

    Will be a heck of a Tournament!

    Stekelenburg (sp?) has some fitness issues, might not be fit for the Euro's

    I hope he isn't because I want to see Krul play :)

    Though he might go for the more experienced Vorm in that case

    On paper I think France have a very good squad, they have quality players in all positions

    Gutted for Sagna BUT in Debuchy they have a quality RB who should do well

    Not a fan of Italy and I can't see them winning this, if the draw favours them they might get to the semi finals
