Euro 2012 kicks off on Friday, with Poland playing Greece and Russia facing the Czech Republic in the opening matches of the highly anticipated tournament.

None of the four are favored to be crowned European champions, though, as that distinction largely belongs to defending European and World Cup champion Spain and prime contenders Germany and Netherlands, while France is also a popular selection to complete a return to glory.

The field also includes some other candidates that might be entering play a bit under the radar because. Portugal labored through a lackluster qualification campaign and was put the Group of Death with Germany and the Dutch, but Cristiano Ronaldo is capable of carrying his talented side a long way. Italy is sidetracked with a match-fixing scandal that has marred the sport in the country, but Cesare Prandelli's side is capable of making a run as well.

Those are just a handful of the 16 teams vying for Europe's grand prize. Who do you think will win Euro 2012? Cast your vote after the jump:
