The opening 4 days of the European Championships feature 3 matches that trump the opening of the World Cup or any other competition. On Saturday, the 9th of June, Germany plays Portugal in a battle of European stars and giants. Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira feature for Germany against their Real Madrid teammate, Portugese star Christiano Ronaldo.
On Sunday, the 10th of June, Spain battles Italy. Yes, the World Cup champions from 2006 are locked in against the World Cup champions of 2010. This is quite the weekend with David Silva facing his Manchester City teammate Mario Balotelli. Italy is a mix of experience and youth, but anything less that advancing out of the group stage is unacceptable for the Italians after a horror showing in the 2010 World Cup.
Speaking of horror showings in the 2010 World Cup, France is looking to make a statement, and first up is England. England is having a bit of a midfield crises in the lead up to the tournament with Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry sent home due to injuries. France, on the other hand, has a new wave of stars led by in-form Real Madrid striker, Karim Benzema. It's not a bad way to spend a Monday: watching geographical and historical enemies, England and France, playing for pride, country, and much much more than money.
