With Euro 2012 over, we now have just a few weeks to sort out the latest transfer sagas and prepare ourselves for the new Premier League season. We can’t wait.
In the meantime, UEFA announced it’s team of the tournament, which included 3 Premier League stars (in bold):
Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Italy), Iker Casillas (Spain), Manuel Neuer (Germany).
Defenders: Gerard Pique (Spain), Fabio Coentrao (Portugal), Philipp Lahm (Germany), Pepe (Portugal), Sergio Ramos (Spain), Jordi Alba (Spain).
Midfielders: Daniele de Rossi (Italy), Steven Gerrard (England), Xavi (Spain), Andres Iniesta (Spain), Sami Khedira (Germany), Sergio Busquets (Spain), Mesut Ozil (Germany), Andrea Pirlo (Italy), Xabi Alonso (Spain).
Forwards: Mario Balotelli (Italy), Cesc Fabregas (Spain), Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden), David Silva (Spain).
Chelsea’s Fernando Torres (somehow) won the Golden Boot but was (correctly) not named in the Team of the Tournament.
