The Euro 2012 Quarter-finals are upon us with the Czech Republic, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, England, Germany, and Greece participating. The following slideshow will deal with the predictions of the match and the reason.

Before continuing, it has come to the attention of The Premier League Insider news about a boycott of the quarter-finals by ministers from the UK. The news was published in the BBC Sports website.

The reason for the boycott is the celebration of the venues in Ukraine and political reasons. It is a shame that politicians tend to mess things including sports.

The politicians as well as certain elements of the press should separate politics from sports. Many of them boycott the Euros in Ukraine but would likely go to Eurovision 2012 in Azerbaijian or a concert in Cuba.

After expressing the concept of separation of politics from sports, the time has come for the Euro 2012 Quarter-finals predictions.
