    I think Germany and Italy have the best chance. They are playing the best football in Europe right now.

    I said Italy because of patriotism, but historically Italy always did well when was completely out of consideration and failed when among the favorites...
    Hopefully they will reverse the trend...

    I think the Germans will win it because they have the easiest road to the finals (and the fact I live with Germans (and a Dutchman) atm). If not the Germans you can not discount the French, the Italians or the Dutch, Portuguese or the Spanish. Should be an interesting tournament (and perhaps a close one - particularly the group of death).

    I honestly do not think the Italians will get out of the group stage.

    They are a great team, but overall they have never been very successful in International Tournaments (despite there 4 World Cup wins). They usually put up a great fight and go far in the tournaments however. This time though, they are in the group of death and I actually think that France and the Netherlands will take 1st and 2nd place in the group.

    Here is a bit of history on the European Cup:

    1960
    Winner - Soviet Union
    2nd Place - France

    1964
    Winner - Spain
    2nd Place - Soviet Union

    1968
    Winner - Italy
    2nd Place - Hungary

    1972
    Winner - Germany
    2nd Place - Soviet Union

    1976
    Winner - Czechoslovakia
    2nd Place - Germany

    1980
    Winner - Germany
    2nd Place - Belgium

    1984
    Winner - France
    2nd Place - Spain

    1988
    Winner - Netherlands
    2nd Place - Soviet Union

    1992
    Winner - Denmark
    2nd Place - Germany

    1996
    Winner - Germany
    2nd Place - Czech Republic

    2000
    Winner - France
    2nd Place - Italy

    2004
    Winner - Greece
    2nd Place - Portugal
