Gotta give credit where it's due. The scousers laid a beating on my lads Sunday. They deserved to win - Kuyt was a monster.

Suarez was a freak show. Man, what a steal for the Reds. Great pick up.

So, who do you guys have as the winner for Euro Cup '12? Surprise to no one who knows me, I gotta back my Germans.

Raptors Republic All-Star
Well, I gotta be rooting for our own team of course, but we have a very difficult first round group with the numbers 3,4,9 and 10 from the fifa world ranking in Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and Portugal. It's far from a certainty for any of these countries to get out of this group (though likely that Denmark won't).
We were runner up in the World Championship two years ago, but I think the general feeling is that the Spanish are (again) favorites and that the Germans rank second. The Netherlands are probably right behind them.

As much as I would like to see my Spanish brethren win it again, they are simply not the same team they were 4 or even 2 years ago. Don't get me wrong they are still a very strong unit, but I don't think they will take it. To me the favourites gotta be the Germans. I think they will win it all.
Another one of my favourites (behind only Brazil as the soccer nation I cheer loudest for), I would love to see the Oranje win. I will def be rooting for them. It's going to be tough though, like you mention they have a very tough group. Clearly the "group of death" in this tourney. I think it will be the Dutch and Germans to make it out of that group.
Should be a great tourney!
As a side note, this thread started out as a Toronto FC discussion. What a miserable state of affairs that team finds itself in. So sad man.
