Euro 2012 Expert Power Rankings: Counting Down All 16 Teams

Sixteen teams are competing for European glory this summer, but only one—or maybe two?—can top B/R's Euro 2012 Expert Power Rankings.

The premise here is simple: Heading into Euro 2012, which team is best? With that said, simple isn't necessarily uncomplicated.

To find out which team is best, we invited 12 B/R writers (more on them in a moment) to vote on every team, from worst to first. We used a points system, meaning a first-place vote counted as 16 points, a second-place as 15 and so on.

A perfect score (as in all 12 first-place votes for one team) was 192.

All the votes have been tallied, and now, it's time to reveal the results.

First, though, one more thing. For these rankings, we asked our panelists to vote for the teams they thought were best before the tournament. That's not necessarily the same thing as predicting who will win the tournament, though they did that too.

As you'll see, the responses were detailed and thoughtful, and we saw a wide range of opinions.
