Portugal, the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. The 2012 Group of DEATH in the Euros. And if this is the group of DEATH, then we are in the middle of our final judgment, as Portugal and the Netherlands--traditional super-powers--are battling for second place, while Germany take on Denmark for the right to continue to the next round unscathed. Holland are on the ropes, after losses in their first two games--to Germany and Denmark--have left them virtually (but not literally) eliminated. Portugal, however, have not been in top form, with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo yet to score in the tournament.

Consider this your Real Madrid-based forum to discuss everything that's going on in this group. We'll be here to talk about it with you, though we'll all retain our own personal biases. Try to keep from in-fighting as much as possible, though we admit that some of it is inevitable with tensions running so high.
