Euro 2012 has been a highly enjoyable event thus far thanks in no small part to the raft of shocks and surprises we have been served up over the past fortnight.

You can quibble all you like about whether we are halfway or three quarters of the way through tournament—each team left has played three of a possible six matches, while 24 of the 31 scheduled fixtures have now been fulfilled—but there is little doubt that this has been a great tournament so far.

Hoping for the unexpected is what makes cup and tournament football so appealing, and seeing it happen brings great satisfaction.

Even if the latter stages of Euro 2012 all go to form, there have already been plenty of big surprises both on and off the pitch, 10 of which are listed here.
