Euro 2012 kicks off on 8 June 2012 and there will be sixteen teams competing in this illustrious football tournament.

The European Championships are second only to the World Cup when it comes to major football competitions and the Euro 2012 teams have endured a tough qualifying campaign to reach the finals, which will take place in Poland and Ukraine.

The exceptions to the rule are the co-hosts, with Poland and Ukraine jointly staging the three-week tournament which will determine which football nation are the kings of Europe.

The Euro 2012 teams in Group A are Poland, Greece, Czech Republic and Russia. This quartet all seem evenly-matches and it wouldn’t be a major surprise if any of them qualified for the quarter final stage.

Poland play Greece in their opening match at the National Stadium in Warsaw, while Russia will be up against a Czech side that qualified for the Euro 2012 finals through the play-offs.

The teams that will be competing in Group B of Euro 2012 are Germany, Netherlands, Portugal and Denmark. Some people might think the Danes stand no chance of going through against the three other teams, although the Scandinavian side will be no pushovers and actually finished above the Portuguese in qualifying.

Germany are among the favourites to win Euro 2012 and they were arguably the most impressive out of all the teams during qualification for the summer tournament. Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see if the Dutch play a more expansive form of football after taking a defensive approach throughout the 2010 World Cup.

The teams in Group C of the Euro 2012 finals include the mighty Spain, although there are signs that Vicente Del Bosque’s team are a fading star having recently lost friendly matches to Italy and England. They were also somewhat fortunate to win the 2010 World Cup and three consecutive victories in major tournaments is a big ask.

Perhaps Italy are the team in Euro 2012 to watch out for, with the Azzurri recovering from the 2010 World Cup by building up a squad of youngsters and a couple of seasoned campaigners to ensure they comfortably qualified for the finals.

Meanwhile, the Euro 2012 teams in Group D include England, France, Ukraine and Sweden. The English and French are favourites to make it to the quarter final stage, although neither were very good in South Africa, with Fabio Capello taking charge of the Three Lions for the final occasion.
