I'm a toss between Spain & Germany, not quite sure who to put my money on.

Spain is certainly a little ahead in my book, since they've already bagged 2 major trophies, but i doubt they'll bag the Third.

Just curious, but why do you doubt them winning the Euro 2012?

mostly because villa won't be there. but then the stars fail to shine in the latest ucl. and the german with ridiculously amount of talented midfield.

i mean, here is the list: schweini, muller, ozil, khedira, goetze, reus, podolski, kross, marin. those are just crazy!

Being favorite is major pressure, i just think the pressure might get the best of them, though i hope it doesn't.

I have to say, I am a little worried about who is going to be scoring the goals for the Spaniards, David Villa is out and while I believe in Torres he is not known for his massive score tally with the Spain shirt. Im rooting for Spain regardless.

Well it didn't get the best of them during the World Cup, Spain lost their first game in the WC tournament but also became the first to win the tournament while losing their first match.
It was pressure yet they were able to see the Championship through.
