Euro 2012 Qualifying Update

Euro 2012 Qualifying Update

An update on the Euro 2012 qualifying games, right here.
SportsAspire Staff
51 teams are participating in the Euro 2012 qualifying games, and there have been some really good games that have been played so far. The way things have gone, it seems those that did well in the previous FIFA World Cup, like the Netherlands, Spain and Germany, are doing well here too at the Euro 2012. Italy, who crashed out in the first round of the World Cup, are also on the top of their group, and they will be looking to erase the embarrassment of the world cup in these Euro games. At the start of the qualifiers, France seemed to continue their bad form of the world cup into this tournament too, but have picked up from a slow start to get to the top of their group. Here is the latest standings in qualifying for the Euro 2012 finals next year.
