Best players of Euro2012

Who are they, so far?

Among players in the quarter/semi- finals, I'd say following are good candidates:

Ozil
Iniesta

I know, the knock-out stages will be more important to the final choice, but no player was really outstanding consistently. Except for Iniesta, IMO.

DDR has been brilliant too IMO.
Zlatan was great too pity that Sweden wetre shit.
Iniesta has been AWESOME too. Pirlo too deserves a shout.

I think David Silva has been the best Spanish player so far. Iniesta has also done well though, especially against the Croatians. Other top performers of the players still in it are Pirlo and Gerrard, both of which have been excellent.

Ozil was great against Greece, but that was his first real stand out game.

Silva has been shaky tho. Yes he did has goals and assists but he was no where as threatning as Iniesta, but opinions vary.

Well, I like Silva's risktaking in regards to passing. He goes for the instinctual quick pass a lot more than Xavi & Iniesta, who sometimes hold on to it a bit too long for my liking and let chances go to waste, but yeah, opinions vary, like you said.

And you're seriously sleeping on Gerrard homes. Dude's been dictating England's play, the little they have (lol), much in the same way Pirlo has done for Italy. He's been in the center of more or less every good move that's come out of that English side.

Yes Gerrard has been decisive with his assists(most of them set pieces) but he exactly does not have been someone to claim at being the best individual of Euro 2012.

Pirlo ahead of De Rossi? Your credibility gone out the window.

Gebre Selassie was pretty damn decent. Few of the Polish lads (mostly the Dortmund pair) and a few others here and there.

Though seems a lot of you only go for big names. So err, that homophobe wanker Cassano, who's been shit.

Zlatan was great & i consider him the best player in the group stage.
Ronaldo stepped up for Portugal in the last 2 games, De Rossi, Iniesta, Ozil all are having a very good tournament.

How can you defy "the son of god"

As he shall score 5 international goals in 40 caps, those 5 shall be the best goals ever scored.

He rose from the dead to bring Greece out of the Euro 2012 group stage.

He first walked on water, then he walked onto the pitch.

Hart? He has been shaky, was responsible for Nasri's. No where he should be among the best players of Euro.
And how can people name Pirlo while ignoring DDR is beyond me. Not that i am discrediting Pirlo.

Agree here on Ozil, the Greece game was really his first standout game. Iniesta has been Spain's most consistent player, the guy is like fine wine, he just get's better with age. Others...Ronaldo,Mario Gomez and Pepe, Pepe has been the best defender so far imo.
