EURO 2012 - The Final Act

on Friday, 29 June 2012. Posted in General

Yes. Here we are again. The last round from another major football tournament. There was the group stage, quarter finals, semi finals and now there will be the final.

On July 1st there will be only one winner. After so many matches, so many preparations in Ukraine and Poland we will finally find out who will be the winner. Who will it be? Spain or Italy?

EURO 2012 FINAL Kyiv Stadium

Neither of them were in my mind as for the finalists but here they are, Spain with a little luck expecially in the semi final against Portugal where they won the penalty kick and Italy with a fenomenal tactic. Not many people were betting on Italy to reach the finals and they are very close now to win the trophy.

Last night Germany had in my opinion their worst match in the last few years. They were well over Italy exept those little errors when they allowed Balotelli to score twice. And since Italy has the best goalkeeper and the most expensive one in the history of football it is pretty hard to score at least twice to hope for the finals.

There will be only one match that will be played on the Olympic Stadium in Kyiv on July 1st. My bets are going on Italy. They showed amazing strategy and i'm sure they have a valuable team that is capable of winning the EURO 2012 final.

I hope for a big show and for the best team to win the tournament.

EURO 2012 - Opening ceremony on june 8th

Two years ago we covered the FIFA World Cup 2010 Final Tournament in South Africa. The time gone fast so here we are talking about EURO 2012. A tournament that was very much awaited by the fans of this sport and by the two organising countries that created some wonderful stadiums for the tournament.

The pictures with the stadium in Kiev that will host the final of EURO 2012 have been released. The stadium looks gorgeous only there is too much distance between the field and the seats. Other than that EURO 2012 will be a great tournament and we shall have a great show.

EURO 2012 Final Kiev Stadium

My bets goes to Germany. After the fabolous road they had at FIFA World Cup 2010 where they won alot of games by scoring 4 goals and having one of the youngest teams at the tournament i predict a Germany win. These final tournaments are always great to watch and during the tournament there is this holiday spirit in the air. Unfortunately i didn't buy any tickets for any of the EURO 2012 games but i will watch it for sure on my big LCD TV with a glass of 'something' during those hot days of summer.

So the tournament will start on june 8th with the opening ceremony and the match between one of the hosting countries, Poland and the winner of EURO 2004, Greece. Even though there are many favourites on winning the trophy i wouldn't be surprised if another country like Greece will win EURO 2012.

The official website of EURO 2012 says there are 26 days to go. That's less than a month until the show. The final will be on the Kiev Stadium on june 1st. So we will have around 3 weeks of football to enjoy. Until then all the best and what country do you think will win EURO 2012?
