Euro 2008: Who will you support? Arsenal
Clockwise from left: Fabregas, Van Persie, Djourou, Gallas, Fabianski
Arsenal fans will have a host of players to support across the nations at Euro 2008, with six of their squad involved.

Playmaker Cesc Fabregas will certainly be one to look out for as Spain attempt to shake off their "nearly men" tag at a tournament for the first time in a while, while winger Robin van Persie will want to shake off an injury-hit season to impress for another favourite, the Netherlands.

France had been expected to be most reliant on Arsenal stars, but the surprising omissions of Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna and Abou Diaby ensure experienced defender William Gallas will be the sole Gunner flying the tricolore this summer.

Elsewhere, defenders Johan Djourou and Phillipe Senderos will likely pair up for Switzerland, with Lukas Fabianski hoping to start in goal for Poland.

Injury has ensured Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky and Croatian striker Eduardo da Silva will watch the tournament from home.
