With just a week to go before the Euro 2012, Germany has emerged as the title favourites in a Yahoo! Singapore poll.

29 per cent of votes went to Joachim Low's men, while defending champions Spain emerged a close second with 24 per cent of votes.

The Netherlands narrowly beat England to third spot with 16 percent of the votes. Another 6 per cent are expecting a surprise winner.

A total of 1339 Yahoo! readers took part in the poll, which lasted a week.

Confidence in the German camp may have been hit after Bayern Munich's devastating Champions League final defeat to Chelsea. But apparently that has not affected readers' confidence in the Germans.

Eddie Goh believes Germany have the right balance in the squad to go all the way this time around.

He commented on our Facebook page, saying, "Germany has a very well established youth squad with few senior players in their squad. Unlike the old Germany which depend heavily on Michael Ballack in the midfield, things have been improvised a lot.

"With fast moving players and commanding midfield, it definitely increases the high chance of winning."

Gabriel Issac Murdoch added, "If they keep up where they left off in 2010 World Cup, Germany is my choice."

Indeed, the current German team is one of the most exciting in recent generations with the likes of the experienced Mesut Ozil, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lukasz Podolski forming the spine of the team, while young upstart playmaker Mario Gotze is emerging as one of the young stars to watch.

Regardless who the eventual winner is, we are set for an enthralling Euro 2012.

The wait is nearly over.

We are barely two weeks away from the Euro 2012, which is one of the most mouth-watering ones in recent history.

While Spain remain the hot favourites to retain their title which they won four years ago thanks to a Fernando Torres winner against Germany in the final, it would be duff to write off the might of the Germans, the rising force of the Dutch, the rejuvenated Italians and the ever-so-hopeful yet underachieving English.

So we started a poll on our Euro 2012 site (https://sg.sports.yahoo.com/euro). And a total of 1339 readers casted their votes on who they reckon will lift the European Cup, which many see as a more competitive international tournament than the World Cup.

And Germany have emerged as our readers' top choice to emerge victorious with 29 percent of the votes while Spain fell short on 24 percent.

Netherlands narrowly beat England to third spot with 16 percent of the votes as 6 per cent are expecting a surprise winner from one of the underdogs.
