I grew up watching England, but their standard and play has dropped over the years... always don't know what to expect anymore...

I supported Spain and De Dutch during World cup... so would love to see them in the end.

*Agreed with most of your picks, although I think Czech will surprise and do better than Russia, and not feeling Denmark... prob gonna go with Germany

Spain and Germany are the favorites. France is very underrated, especially with a in form Benzema who was not on the 2010 World Cup squad. England still sucks, no Rooney for first 3 group stage matches lol.

If anyone is going to lead the Oranj its Robin Van Persie, that guy has been scoring a goal per game pace this entire year.

We'll see, Huntelaar is usually a sub just like in the 2010 World Cup final against Spain.

Germany is the favorite with young stars like Ozil and Gotze. Klose should be good since its his last EURO, but I'm thinking its Gomez's year.

Germany's my team and I really do think this is their tournament. Ozil has been doing awesome for Madrid, and the rest of the midfield (Schweinsteiger, Mueller) are just as good, if not better. With all that talent, Gomez just has to be there for the pass, just like at Bayern. Not to mention the best 'keeper in the world plays for them too!

Neur is quite the keeper. I'm hoping for a Spain/Germany final. Only thing about Germany is their centre backs are a bit suspect.

i hope wilshere, chamberlain, and adam johnson will feature for england.
despite the english team is dropping in recent year, there are foreseeable stars and i expect them to do well.

germany is tipped to be the big winner, with khedira, ozil, and podolski.

spain, although they were big hits during euro and world cup, it just seems the conflict between the madrid and barcelona team is causing the overall spanish morale to drop. spain could play well if they focus the attack mostly on barcelona player, and leave the defence to madrid. (kick xabi alonso out and put busquet in, leave ramos and casillas for defense, and get torres that scam out of the way too)

portugal will not most likely make it through the group stage.

poland will most likely go through to final 4, they have decent attack and a good goalkeeper (chesney), but they need to be extra careful of their leaking defence.

for france, although samir nasri and benzema would play a big role, i still can't see they go through, given their recent recession.

have you even watched irish football lately?
ireland was lucky to draw with estonia for the euro playoff.

i think the irish team will fail to go through the group stage. i can't see how they would be better than spain. who can ireland rely on anyway? robbie keane and glenn whelan? keane is old and whelan is average at best.

Yup, you're absolutely crazy if you think Ireland will qualify in a group that has Spain and Italy. Even if Cassano and Rossi aren't ready to play in the EURO's, Italy will still finish second in that group.

Guaranteed Chamberlain is not going to be selected, Wilshere yes.

As for "leaving the attack to Barca players on Spain" and leave defending to Real players, you do understand the only players from Real Madrid on Spain are defenders, a goalie, and a defensive midfielder?

And the Polish goalie is Szczesny not Chesney!

France will do well, the old guard is gone and the new one is ready.
