Euro 2012 Loser Thread

(I don't know if this should be front-paged, but it might be better if all of you just Rec it so it can live forever in the sidebar.)

This is just a shot in the dark, but I would guess that Soccer Futbol is at LEAST the second-favorite sport of PtR. So, since we all badly need something to distract us, here's a thread for that, that should probably last us a while. I usually only watch football during the World Cup or the Olympics (when I can briefly root for USA USA), but these are desperate times.

I don't know who these guys are, but I'm willing to learn.
