Power Ranking the Best Midfielders at Euro 2012

Let's be honest: Euro 2012 was all about midfielders. If you had good midfielders, you got far in the tournament. If you had bad midfielders, chances are you weren't too successful.

Spain won Euro 2012 utilizing a formation without a striker, Italy powered their way to the final largely thanks to the efforts of two key midfielders and even the tournament's semifinalists had some majorly impressive midfielders who got their teams far in the tournament.

Ahead, we power rank the tournament's top midfielders. Please note that wingers and strikers have all been left off this list as the significant majority of them played as forwards at Euro 2012.

So please do not call for Cristiano Ronaldo or Ribery's inclusion...they will likely be included in a later list of the "Best Forwards of Euro 2012."
