So here’s our first progress review of Euro 2012! With every manager’s squad released following the Matchday 1 deadline, we’ve now peeked through the squads to spot contenders of valour!

First, let’s review today’s results. With no clean sheets, the big winners today in points order were Dzagoev (6.8%), Shirokov (13.5%) and Lewandowski (23%). With the latter two in widespread ownership, and the first an FFS bandwagon owned by a large number of participating managers, the valour was somewhat diminished. The most valorous pick today would have been the Polish substitute goalkeeper who saved the Greek penalty – Tyton, as everyone knows – but unsurprisingly, no-one was unhinged enough to choose him. I feel I should name Childish Gambino for plumping for the spectacularly unpopular Greek striker Gekas (0.8%). Unfortunately it didn’t come off.

So what feats of valour tantalize us tomorrow? Tomorrow brings us Netherlands v Denmark and Germany v Portugal. While Germany and Portugal is barren ground for surprises, the Danish offer potential for gloriously loopy picks, and inevitably, here it comes: Yes, Doosra has picked Danish striker Dennis Rommedahl (0.8%) to score against the Netherlands, and while the site won’t let us verify this yet, it is understood he is also on captaincy. Bloody hell, someone give that man a medal. What else do we have? Sporting ABG has sportingly gone for Christian Eriksen (9.5%)! While his ownership is relatively high, he is a non-starter on FFS boards and we have to say that is a gamble! A few brave or extremely stingy souls (Mark and TommyTour) have also gone for Danish keeper Andersen (2.9%). A clean sheet would be startling. If he saves a penalty, the phones will start ringing…

Stay tuned for our Day 2 report and preview of Day 3!
