Winners of Euro 2012

Recommended Posts

So we've seen enough now to make an informed judgement on who's under performed, over performed and who's done what we expected of them. I think I've seen enough to make a fair assessment on who the winners and losers are.

I've personally been disappointed with a few of what I would call the 'big nations', namely the Netherlands, Spain France and the Italians.

I expect a high caliber whenever these are mentioned, I've been dazzled by them tournament after tournament for years but this year the levels have definitely dipped.

England are pretty much meh, it's all a bit too familiar.

Whilst some of the bigger nations have under performed the Germans have pretty much performed as expected, solid without being spectacular.

I expect big things from the Portuguese and this year whilst coming correct I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed.

But on to more positive performers. Ukraine as the host nation were under quite a lot of pressure but they handled it well, even the Germans had to acknowledge the levels.

The Croats are obviously a relatively new nation but they're always on point, there's a few outstanding performers in their team.

The Danes have never really caught my eye but they've worked well with what they've got this year, not serious contenders but still.

But on to the business end of the tournament. I mention the Swedes and everyone knows the levels, how many times have they wrapped up the title by the end of the group stages? This year they came correct as per usual, they were looking a little ropey but the right winger...she just has a way of starting surging runs

The Russians didn't perform that well as a team but there's a youthful innocence to their star performer that compensated for their shortcomings.

But the real story is how some of the less fancied nations have performed whilst being heavily reliant on their veterans, namely the Irish and the Greeks.

They've been around the block, but they've rolled back the years to let couple youngers know they got quinting tekkers that only comes through years of practice.

But whilst the aforementioned all performed well for me the second host nation have performed admirably. I expect it to be a controversial decision but for me Poland take the title this year, yes they're a one man team but their star player came hard game after game.

She left defenders in her wake time after time.

Was never shy about playing up to the camera.

Managed to look spectacular whilst doing the simple things

And most importantly embraced the fans
