The third quarterfinal of Euro 2012 is the most eye-catching and the one that will provoke the most wild speculation and predictions.
Spain are reigning world and European champions, just as France were a decade ago. While Spain are very much the favourites, it is difficult to rule out the French, as they remain an unknown prospect.
I have written before of how much I try to shy away from predicting results, and many of my previous "bold predictions" articles have drawn much criticism for not being bold or outlandish enough.
So, in order to redress the balance, here are 10 extremely bold predictions that will almost certainly not happen, but it would be amazing if they did.
As ever, feel free to add your own predictions—however ridiculous—in the comments section below.
