What to look for at Euro 2012
Question of the Day
FIVE TO WATCH
The one wild-card pick in an otherwise formulaic England squad, Oxlade-Chamberlain could be the “super sub” that coach Roy Hodgson turns to at Euros. The 18-year-old attacking midfielder has impressed when given an opportunity in his first season at Arsenal with his pace and penetration and is set to be a regular for club and country for years to come.
Euro 2012 could be the tournament where the 20-year-old Eriksen shines on the international stage, despite Denmark’s devilishly difficult group. The stylish Ajax playmaker has been linked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe and this summer could be his shop window to secure that move.
An expectant Poland will be relying on its most recent player of the year to reproduce the goal-scoring exploits that fired Borussia Dortmund to a second straight German title this season. Given the co-host’s relatively straightforward group, the 23-year-old striker is being tipped by some as a potential winner of the Golden Boot, given to the tournament’s top scorer.
The Netherlands have had high expectations for this winger for years and after recently returning to action following an injury-plagued season, he could finally deliver at Euros. With his lightning speed and sweet dribbling skills, Afellay provides a touch of Barcelona play in orange, and his smooth link-up play with Van Persie should earn him a starting berth this tournament.
Reportedly high on the shopping list of mega-rich Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, the 21-year-old Scheurrle is a versatile forward who will be a backup to Lukas Podolski for Germany, but could easily end up taking his spot in the coming years. The emerging star of German club Bayer Leverkusen has the technique and selfless work rate to make himself a star.
