The next most important football competition on the football calender sees the UEFA European Championship as second only to the FIFA World Cup.  With the glitzy array of European talent on show in this competition pits traditional powerhouses such as Spain, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, France and England against less fancied teams such as the Czech Republic, Serbia, Croatia, Ireland, Belgium, Greece, Turkey, Poland, Russia and Ukraine.  Of course there are even teams such as Slovakia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Hungary, Estonia, Belarus, Latvia, Lithuania, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland always trying to knock on the door of the finals, sometimes with success but constantly falling short at the qualifying rounds even though they might have a star or two in their midst.  A tournament and its qualifying rounds to stir up national pride, in this undisputed top continental competition.  Well almost.  Am sure the South Americans would disapprove of this comment.
