It has been a season of brilliant European club football. A season, where teams have played brilliantly yet lost. Resilient Chelsea in Champions league have dug deep to keep their team alive when it seemed even the odds were stacked up against it. Chelsea goalkeeper Peter Cech has been rock solid at the back, a man who made innumerable saves in the semi-finals and finals to keep his team in contention. Like the Champions League, there have been instances in European football championship as well where goalkeepers like Lev Yashin, in 1960 and Antonios Nikopolidis have won it for their teams.
The European Football championship commonly known as the EURO will start from June 8 in Poland and Ukraine. 16 teams will battle it out to be crowned the undisputed kings of Europe. Spain, winners of the 2008 edition, are the favourites again to win the tournament.
