England head coach Fabio Capello thinks that Euro 2012 will be even harder to win than the World Cup in South Africa two years ago.
Capello’s reign as England boss will end after next year’s finals in Poland and Ukraine, with England 10/1 with bookmaker to send the Italian off on a winning note.
However, Capello believes that his side will face a massive test of their mettle, with the likes of reigning champions Spain (5/2) and Germany (3/1) among the favourites.
Capello said: “It will be stronger because if you look at the groups and all the teams – particularly the three European teams who reached the World Cup semi-finals – the technical level is at the top, the organisation of the teams is at the top.
“Also some teams who didn’t play well at the World Cup will now be back at the top.
“Portugal, France and Italy will be better. It will be a really tough tournament.”
