Photographer's Note

This snow sculpture could be seen in the Ischgl-Samnaumn ski area in February this year. The reason it was there was of course to remind of the UEFA EURO 2008 in Austria and Switzerland that starts today and what could be a better place than this in ski area that is partly in Austria and partly in Switzerland. The tournament will take place between 7 June and 29 June and the following 16 teams will participate in the European Championship: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, France, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.

This morning football supporters in all sixteen countries are very happy and expectant. On 19 June when the quarter- finals start only the supporters of eight teams are still very happy, on 25 June when semi-finals start only the supporters of four teams are still very happy. On 29 June when the final will take place only the supporters of two teams are still very happy. When there is about an hour left of 29 June the supporters of only one team will be overjoyed and triumphant. In all sixteen countries the supporters are right now hoping that it is their team that will keep them happy throughout the tournament.
