Euro 2012 predictions and England rivals

MANCHESTER - Yesterday Mario Balotelli scored a goal with his chest, with his heart :).
I'm looking at the Euro 2012 calendar with the fixtures of the groups and how they are combined, and if everything goes as it should (considering the current strength of the teams), but of course it always goes in a different way ('cause there's also: luck, injuries, drunk players, ghost goals against England, idiotic referees paid by Blatter, etc.), qualified to the quarter finals there should be, more or less: 
  • Spain vs france (but I wish Sweden or Ukraine instead of france) 
  • Germany vs Russia
  • Holland vs Greece (quite easy eh, but the Netherlands have one of the most difficult groups, so it's ok here)
  • England vs Italy (uuuuuuhhhh I would love it, this time I think Italy would lose, and I'd be happy, there should be a chance for England too... in this case, there wouldn't be referees paid by Blatter, 'cause he hates England AND Italy only... more Italy, as he's got too many "important, useful friends" of English nationality...)
(Portugal would go home during the group, behind Holland and Germany)

So the semi-finals could be:
  • Spain vs Germany (almost sure this match here, in this situation, same as South Africa 2010)
  • Holland vs England
So probably there's a high percentage of the same World Cup 2010 final, Spain-Holland, but I think Germany will improve even more. I see Germans are lucky 'cause they can hardly have Italy on their way... they always lose against us. And it's since 1996 they don't win an international cup, and considering their good past, it's about time. Well, England since 1966, the only one cup... really about time.

Here are England's first rivals:
