Yes, first of my predictions has come true. Today is the chance for the second prediction. Who knows one day I might even be able to take the place of Paul the Octopus in predicting the winner. :) Cheers! Ram

I'd say you have a pretty good chance with your second prediction. I'd even say that Germany has a good chance to be at the finals. We shall see, the game will start in few hours...

I also intend to watch all the matches although it will not be easy for me as they come up live around 2:30 in the morning here! All the next matches will be exciting to watch for me; but I can only see a Germany vs Spain finals at the end...

Hi sishy7.. Hmm... I really can't say anything about the finals because these are just the QF rounds. Things might completely change by the time we come to the final leg of EURO 2012. But, thanks a lot for your response.

I am an English fan. So I will want my team to win - I am an English fan. So I will want my team to win the Euro 2012!
I think Portugal, Germany, Spain and England will progress to the semi finals. My predictions are based on what is on paper. But I would really like Greece to do what they did in 2004. France is fully capable of upsetting Spain. Italy is a match for any team. But what I predicted are the likely outcomes. I am an England supporter, so I will want my team to win the Euro 2012. But I don't always get what I want in life.

Hi jkct02... Thanks for your response. Among all of the responses to my discussion, there seems to be a clear majority of Portugal winning QF-1. I guess I am the odd one out.. :D Lets see. Once again, thanks for your response.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the player that could lead Po - Cristiano Ronaldo is the player that could lead Portugal to glory in Euro 2012
The way that Portugal played their last match showed what they can do when Cristiano Ronaldo is in form. As he is such a prolific player, it is hard to see him getting quiet in a game for long and he just proved that with 2 well taken goals against Holland. That is the reason for my prediction. Further more, Czech Republic is not really that strong a team comparatively but they were lucky being in a weak group. The scorelines you predicted are too high scoring. I feel all the matches will be very close with no more than 2 goals difference.

Now we are on the second stage of Euro 2012 . Knock out levels will start on tomorrow. In the first qualifier I think Portugal will win the match. In the second qualifier O think Germany will win. And in the third and fourth qualifiers the winners may be Spain and England respectively. These are my predictions. I am so eager to know other predictions too .

Hi there... Hmm.... I think QF-1 would be close. I don't see Portugal getting a clear win. Its the reason why I chose Czech Republic in my predictions. As far as the others go, QF-3 & QF-4 might go into penalty shootouts. Thanks for your response...

Guess I was wrong... Portugal were clearly the winning team though they did not score until the 79th minute!!!! I was hoping the Czech would put up a fight...!! Oh well... QF-1 is complete.. Portugal is the first team to make it to the semifinals..

With all due respect to Greece, their tie with Germany is the least glamorous of the quarter finals. As for my prediction, it will be Portugal, Germany, France and Italy. I have mentioned that I dislike Portugal but I think they will be too strong for the Czech. Germany should be a straight forward victory. France and Italy might need a penalty shoot out to decide the ties.

Hi sjlskl. I agree. It seems the most straightforward win would be by Germany in the 2nd QF. Thanks for your response.
