The wait is over. We now know what lies ahead for everyone in Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.  After Friday afternoon's draw in which all 16 teams were divided equally, we now can concentrate on the games on the pitch.



Greece will be again looking to hoist the trophy, as it did unexpectedly in 2004 in Portugal.  Since that historic victory, Greece has won its first World Cup game in 2010 and is now currently ranked 14th in the world, according to FIFA.
