Plus, its a chance to see Roman Shirokov from the Russian League play. Among his exploits-
He had been loaned out to Torpedo-ZIL butone day he went to a barbecue with his friends – and did not return for two months. Later, in an attempt to cover his ill-discipline he made up the story about breaking a leg. When the truth was discovered, Shirokov was sent back to the army club – to actually serve in the army rather than play football. He was still training with the reserves but his main duties included digging trenches and painting walls in red and blue, CSKA's club colours.

I'm rooting for England and Germany. England is managed by Roy Hodgson whom I loved during his Fulham days. My ancestors are German and my father works for a German company so I support them as well. Spain have to be the favorites. The Dutch will also play well.
Michael Ballack is more entertaining on the pitch than the tv set.
The Croats had an epic run through the World Cup in 98 I believe. The great thing about the Euros is everyone can play. It's so difficult to qualify in the most talented footballing continent.

I think Germany will take it this year, so much young talent.
