[Headline: Will Euro 2012 be disrupted? Plus team outlook!]

Q: Will Euro 2012 championship being hosted by Poland & Ukraine go off peacefully, in light of the threat of boycott by some nations due to political actions by Ukraine? Plus, a quick look at prospects of teams.

The tournament will go off peacefully.

Even though there is self-doubt, but good relationships, friends and allies will ensure there is no disruption. This tournament is a top priority for Ukraine and they will work hard for success. They will be in complete charge and will ensure the event is managed well with all safety and security measures in place.

On a lighter note, a very quick look at the prospects of some teams. Still early days, and it is challenging to predict when you're dealing with an unpredictable force - the passion and energy of fans and players. As usual, we will stick this blog's neck out, but only a bit.

It appears that....
  • France & Italy may disappoint.
  • Germany will need to push much harder to cross the first round.
  • Greece will spring a surprise.
  • Netherlands seems to be in command.
  • England & Russia will do well if they cross the first barrier.
  • Poland, Sweden, Ukraine, Croatia, Spain  Portugal are likely to cross the first round. But apart from Poland, it will be a challenge for the other five to make further progress.
