EURO 2012 - Very entertaining tournament

on Monday, 18 June 2012. Posted in General

Now that we are almost in the first knock out round we can say some conclusions on EURO 2012 and make some guessings on the future results. As i stated in my earlier article Germany seems to win everything as they are the only team at EURO to make the biggest number of points in a group where the big favourites where Holland.

I'm surprised that a team like Holland even though they had only one match lost in the qualifiers, they are the current vice champions of the world after they reached the finals in South Africa back in 2010.

EURO 2012 Kiev Stadium Final

This may be the biggest surprise in the latest final tournaments after the one in 2002 when France clashed with Senegal after they won EURO 2000 and World Cup 1998 which they organised.

Since we are talking about organisation the tournament was a good one. Maybe some fans cancelled their tickets to the tournament because they thought they won't find some good hotels to check in. That seems to be the biggest problem at the tournament.

Greece made another surprise after the one in 2004 and managed to eliminate Russia who was favourite even for winning the trophy after the first match against the Czech Republic finished 4-1.

I also liked Ukraine. They showed they have a good team and tomorrow they will play against England where Rooney is coming back after a suspension. Tonight Spain will play against one of the promising teams at this tournament, Croatia and Italy will play against Ireland.

We may see another surprise and see Italy going home only after the group stage.

In the future games i see Germany winning them all. The first two knock out stage games we already know:

Germany vs Greece

Czech Republich vs Portugal

With that being said we had a great tournament so far and i hope we will have even a better one until the final that will be played in Kiev on the stadium you can see in the picture above on July 1st, 2012.

EURO 2012 - Opening ceremony on june 8th

on Sunday, 13 May 2012. Posted in General


Two years ago we covered the FIFA World Cup 2010 Final Tournament in South Africa. The time gone fast so here we are talking about EURO 2012. A tournament that was very much awaited by the fans of this sport and by the two organising countries that created some wonderful stadiums for the tournament.

The pictures with the stadium in Kiev that will host the final of EURO 2012 have been released. The stadium looks gorgeous only there is too much distance between the field and the seats. Other than that EURO 2012 will be a great tournament and we shall have a great show.

EURO 2012 Final Kiev Stadium

My bets goes to Germany. After the fabolous road they had at FIFA World Cup 2010 where they won alot of games by scoring 4 goals and having one of the youngest teams at the tournament i predict a Germany win. These final tournaments are always great to watch and during the tournament there is this holiday spirit in the air. Unfortunately i didn't buy any tickets for any of the EURO 2012 games but i will watch it for sure on my big LCD TV with a glass of 'something' during those hot days of summer.

So the tournament will start on june 8th with the opening ceremony and the match between one of the hosting countries, Poland and the winner of EURO 2004, Greece. Even though there are many favourites on winning the trophy i wouldn't be surprised if another country like Greece will win EURO 2012.

The official website of EURO 2012 says there are 26 days to go. That's less than a month until the show. The final will be on the Kiev Stadium on june 1st. So we will have around 3 weeks of football to enjoy. Until then all the best and what country do you think will win EURO 2012?
