Obviously, I would like Portugal to win it, but it's almost impossible.
At the moment we are Cristiano Ronaldo + 10, almost all the other players are in bad shape, are inexperienced at this level or don't have enough quality, especially our strikers - we have 3, each one worst than the others...
I think Italy and Germany have good chances, and watch out for the Russians, they could be the darkhorse of the tournament.

i dont think someone being from a certain country should provoque their bias. I have no idea who will win, but i'll cheer for france with my heart and soul. Always did. I was ectatic when they beat us in 98 worlds. Zidane is THE football genius of all time, imo. I wanted to kill him when he hit that italian player with his had. he's obviously nuts. Comes with the territory of being genial, i guess. I swear they would beat italy if he didnt do it. It frustrates me to this very day. they were better during normal time. They shouldve won!

I cheered for France too as long as Zizou was played. They say however that Karim Benzema will become the next Zidane.

I think Germany are a good tip. They've got an easy enough group and they don't have to travel far. Their squad is far better now than it was for the last two European competitions.

I also adore(d) Zidane and have been cheering for France because of him. I still like the French (Henry), that's why I tipped them.
But judging from the last EURO, I say anyone could win it.
I thought Greece will be the last in 2004.
I think Austria will be the worst in this one. (I hope they don't win the cup having said that.)

I can't wait for it to start. I've bought a new Samsung LCD TV, 37', which will be used very much 8 days from today till June 29th.

It's beginning today? ahhh im totally out of it. And, really I still haven't forgiven Zidane for what he did 2 years ago. They were simply better during regular time. And, yes, Henry is the fastest football runner I've ever seen. On an occasion, simply no one can catch him. He once dribbled the entire football field, before scoring a goal. The team from 1998. is the best I've seen in football history, from any country-Didier DesChampes as the conductor of the orchestra (another out of this world player, I even put him face to face with Zidane, well, not really, but still), Laurent Blanc-the capitane, Zidane, the unprecedanted genius of football, Henry, Lizarazou, DeSailly, Lilian Turam, Gjorkaef, Vierra,....where to end? And "the bold" on the goal. He's completely unpredictable, but he made the most unbelievable defences I've seen, most of them were penalties.
