Rio Ferdinand, former England’s national team captain, defender of Manchester United, wasn’t nominated to the European football championships in Poland and Ukraine roster. On Wednesday, the head coach Roy Hodgson announced the names of 23 squad players.
Co-hosts are hoping Borussia Dortmund’s Lukasz Piszczek, Jakub Blaszczykowski and Robert Lewandowsk can reproduce their club success on the international stage
It is a paradox of football that the hosts of a tournament can enjoy a low profile. Attention will, of course, soar when Poland take the field against Greece in the opening match of Euro 2012, but Franciszek Smuda’s side can be pleased that they have only provided meagre information for their opponents.

The squad of Sweden consisting of 23 footballers nominated by the head coach Erik Hamren to participate in European football championships in Poland and Ukraine includes also the striker Johan Elmander, who plays for the Turkish club Galatasaray and was injured during a league match.
The footballer got a right foot injury while playing on Saturday in the Turkish premier league against Fenerbahce Istanbul (0:0). An x-ray examination carried out immediately after the accident showed that the 30-year old Elmander fractured a metatarsal.

Paolo Bento announced on Monday evening during a press conference in Obidos Portugal’s European football championships roster consisting of 23 players. The lineup does not significantly differ from that nominated by the coach to take part at the match with Poland in February.
Germany have not won a trophy since the European Championships in 1996 but many in the country believe Euro 2012 represents their best chance of doing so.
There is a strong-held belief that Joachim Low’s team have closed the gap on reigning champions Spain and that the time may be ripe to end the dominance of La Furia Roja (The Red Fury).
For this is the most vibrant team Germany have had in years. The money injected into the grassroots level of the game is now paying dividends, and such talents as Mats Hummels, Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil and Mario Gotze ensure the national team will be in good shape for many years to come.
And then there are the old-timers – the experienced players needed to win major titles. In Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and Miroslav Klose Germany possess experience in abundance and the know-how needed to win big games.
Germany won each of their 10 qualifying games, scoring 34 goals and conceding just seven in a far from straightforward group. Low was able to experiment with some younger players such as Gotze in a qualifying group that contained such teams as Turkey and Belgium.
Klose scored nine goals in that qualifying campaign to continue his phenomenal international scoring record. A strong season with Lazio is likely to put him in the box seat for a place in attack.
