|Russia may have won the Eurovision Song Contest but now the real battle to conquer Europe begins. |
Germany, France and Italy are being touted as favourites as the competition kicks off, but at this level you can never write off the outsiders – remember Greece in Portugal four years ago who astounded all the critics by lifting the trophy? Obviously many of us will be watching Spain with interest, hoping they can prove their worth as a national side at last. But will you be watching, and who do you think will win?

I don’t think Germany will win. I have worked in football for many years and don‘t think the euphoria we experienced during the World Cup in Germany two years ago can be recaptured. I also think that expectations are very high and under so much pressure the team won‘t perform well. In the past Germany has been a championship team, but now I think other countries have become stronger. My tip is Portugal or Croatia.
