Who will win the tournament?

Tough one. No clear favourites and I'll never be sold on Spain until they actually phsically win the thing. A team build on a solid defensive system will probably win, like France or Italy. I go for France.

What other team will participate in the final?

Portugal probably.

Which darkhorse will get the furthest and what stage?

I'm hoping Romania, but their in a ridiculous group. Probably Russia have the best chance of doing something.

Which team is the most overhyped?

Holland, always.

Who will be the top scorer?

Benzema

Who will be the player of the tournament?

If France get to the final, I'd be pretty sure it will be because of this guy.

Which player will choke big time?

I can see Torres not having a great tournament simply because he doesn't suit Spains football at all. He should be English really.

Which player will 'make his name' in this tournament?

Affaley, Arshavin (if he hasn't already) and a lot of the other Russian super talentets, Moutinho (if he plays), Rat, Marica...
