UEFA in danger of dishing up junk-food Euros

Twenty two matches in and with the group-phase jostling almost complete Euro 2012 organizers can justifiably claim that it has more than lived up to its pre-tournament billing. All the groups have been tightly-contested, there have been many enthralling matches and only been one real thrashing and as fans of Spain and Germany would testify, the fingernails have taken a battering. Things might not be quite as exciting in four years time, however, with UEFA going against the "if it's not broken don't fix it" mantra by swelling the tournament to 24 teams. The decision, justified by UEFA president Michel Platini on Monday, may come back to haunt them.
