This group in the Euro 2012 can be called Group C or "We're stuck in the same group with Spain!" Spain is the reigning Euro champion and the World Cup champ. The battle will be for second place.
1. Spain. Even with David Villa out, Spain is still two-deep at every position on the pitch. Spain's bench could win this group. Spain will totally dominate because it is rare for a team to have all of its midfielders be able to make precise passes. I would be surprised if they don't win every game in this group by two or more goals.
2. Ireland. The strength of the Irish team is with their defense with Shay Given in goal and their forwards that are capable of scoring multiple goals: Robbie Keane, Kevin Doyle, and Shane Long. There is always a surprise team that makes it to the Euro quarterfinals, so I will pick Ireland to be that club.
3. Croatia. The only chance that Croatia has is that they must look to force the offensive tempo with midfielders Niko Kranjcar and Luka Modric and with forwards Ivica Olic and Eduardo.
4. Italy. Italy is totally in disarray. The Italians have been involved in another match-fixing scandal. Italy's coach said that he didn't mind if Italy was not allowed to play in Euro 2012. Striker Mario Balotelli stated that he will walk off of the field if the fans in Poland and in Ukraine begin racist chants during any of Italy's matches. Antonio Cassano is on the team. Don't miss any of Italy's matches because something crazy could definitely happen.
• Of all players who drove the ball at least 40 times in camera-recorded games last season, Anthony proved to be the most efficient of anyone in the league.
However, if Evans doesn’t sign another contract, he’s satisfied with everything he has accomplished throughout the course of his career. Not only has he played for seven teams and exceeded everyone’s expectations as an undrafted player, he has emerged as a leader for the league’s players and put himself in position to succeed after his playing career comes to an end.
