Who will win Euro 2012
That is the question on punter's lips as we head towards the big summer tournament in Poland and Ukraine. Sixteen of Europe's best football nations come together for the tournament, which kicks off on June 8th. The final will be held at the Olympic Stadium, Kiev on July 1st and it is Spain who are heading to the tournament as defending Champions. Current European and World Champions Spain are also front runners in the Euro 2012 Winner Odds with the bookmakers, trading in at 11/4 with Bet365, but under pressure from a very strong Germany side, which has matured since setting the 2010 World Cup alight with their fluid brand of attacking football. So can Spain retain their dominance in World football? Is it worth even looking past them when asking who will win Euro 2012? Of course it will be, Champions don't stay Champions forever and a simple stroke of bad luck can unravel even the greatest sides. But Spain are the team to catch in terms of quality, style and depth and they will be heavily backed in Euro 2012 ante-post betting.

Spain took the 2008 European Championships when they defeated Germany in the final, with Fernando Torres scoring the only goal of the game. That was their second European Championship, as they won it as hosts back in 1964 (when there were only four teams in the finals). But the current Spain side is bursting with talent and class, and teams will again face a tough task just getting the ball off the Spaniards, but meanwhile Vicente del Bosque's men are not leading the Euro 2012 Winner Odds anymore. Germany number one and they are ready to make a big presence again, and Germany are the tournament's most successful nation with three wins under their belt (1972, 1980, 1996). They were runners up in 2008 but they breathed a whole new life into football with their youthful attacking displays at the 2010 World Cup. They have continued that progress, maturing, getting better, and they stormed majestically through qualification, enforcing themselves as a big threat at the summer's final. Joachim Low's men have a very good thing going here, ranked third in the world and will immediately raise their hands if they hear the question, who will win Euro 2012? The Germans won all ten of their qualification matches.
