Germany, Holland, Portugal and Denmark make up EURO 2012 Group of death!

 

 by ‘Ifreke Inyang

This evening at the impressive National Palace of Arts in Kiev, Ukraine, the draws for EURO 2012 were made. Group B is easily the group of death as it has three super powers of European football. The Germans who have been playing some sensational football will play against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, Robin van Persie’s Holland and Niklas Bendtner’s Denmark.

Group A appears to be the easiest group on paper. One of the co-hosts, Poland, will play Greece in the opening game of the competition before facing Russia and the Czechs.

The Irish who haven’t featured in the competition since 1988 will face the current holders, Spain, Italy and Croatia.

England will begin their quest to win a major trophy in many years with a game against the French. The other countries in the group are Ukraine and Sweden.

The EURO 2012 Championships will be co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine. It will hold between 8 June and 1 July, 2012.
