The Euro 2012 opening ceremony happens a week tomorrow. You ready? My Italian friends become mega crazy aggro during these events. Yes Lorella, and Laura, I mean you.

Here’s Fernando Torres on holiday with his family before the big tournament. Torres’s place on the team was questionable for a while there and was only secured with great play towards the end of the league season. Spain plays again on Sunday before heading to Poland to defend their Euro 2012 title and considering that they keep calling it the “golden era” of Spanish football, obviously they’re favoured to go deep.

I’m on the English side. Which is sh-t. Because they suck.
