The "Group of Death" or Group B features high-powered Germany, Netherlands and Portugal. Denmark receives the raw end of the deal by being the fourth team entered.
Here is how the group of death will play out.
Netherlands vs. Denmark
Germany and Portugal may be stealing headlines from the Netherlands, but they will be talking more about them when this group stage is over with.
The Netherlands will begin their run by playing Denmark in the opener. A win would set Netherlands up perfectly in this group.
Difference Maker: Netherland's explosive talent
Arjen Robben, Rafael Van Der Vaart, Wesley Sneijder, Mark Van Bommel and Robin van Persie provide a wealth of talent few in this tournament can match up against.
They have speed, athleticism, craftiness and great goal-scoring ability.
Prediction: Netherlands 3, Denmark 1
Netherlands must avoid a slow start so this game is crucial. Robben scores once and van Persie scores twice to lead Netherlands to the victory.
Germany vs. Portugal
The second game on June 9 is intriguing to say the least. Germany is a well-oiled machine, but Portugal have one of the top-two players in the world.
Difference Maker: Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo will have a good tournament as the go-to guy for Portugal. It will start in the opening game.
He will need to be strong if Portugal has any chance of making it into the knockout stages, and I think he will do fine.
Prediction: Germany 1, Portugal 1
Ronaldo equalizes late to give Portugal a great result in the opener.
Denmark vs. Portugal
After a thrilling first game, Portugal will be looking to pick up three points against Denmark. A win would give them four points, and it would set them up well heading into the final game.
Difference Maker: Lack of focus
Portugal will be coming off a positive result against Germany. They will be liking the situation they are in, but they must stay focused on the task at hand.
Denmark is a formidable side led by Nicklas Bendtner, a player who was previously with Arsenal. He hasn't been what people thought in his time in the English Premier League, but he is still only 24 years old.
He is plenty capable of scoring a few goals in a game this competition.
Prediction: Portugal 2, Denmark 2
Bendtner scores a pair and Portugal fail to capitalize on a glorious opportunity.
Netherlands vs. Germany
This is the game of the group. Netherlands vs. Germany, two of the titans of football. It is going to be a classic.
After Germany's draw in the opener, a positive result will be needed against the Netherlands.
Difference Maker: Mario Gomez
The goal scoring machine, Mario Gomez, will need to show up to the party. He scored 26 goals in the BUNDESLIGA yet failed to come up big against Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea in two of the biggest games of the season.
Prediction: Netherlands 1, Germany 1
Germany will be happy with the result because it will keep them alive. Netherlands defense will play surprisingly well, and Germany's will be strong throughout.
Denmark vs. Germany
A must-win game for Germany will result in a big-time performance to keep its title hopes alive.
Difference Maker: Back against the wall
When your backs are against the wall, and you need to play your best to stay alive, that's when you see the urgency come to life. Germany will play free football and will capitalize on chances early.
Prediction: Germany 4, Denmark 0
Germany will get four goals which will be enough to get them through to the knockout stages.
Portugal vs. Netherlands
Portugal will be in some trouble when they meet Netherlands because of goal differential. As they watch the scoreboard to see the goals Germany is scoring, the pressure will increase.
Difference Maker: Netherland's counter-attack
Portugal will be looking to score early and often to have a better goal differential than Germany. Once they see the Germans scoring at a rapid pace, we will see them push more players forward.
This will open the door for Netherlands which, in turn, will cause several dangerous scoring chances on the counter attack.
Prediction: Netherlands 2, Portugal 1
Netherlands plays solid defense, and they score two on the counter-attack including one late to send Portugal packing.
