Euro 2008: Who will you support? Chelsea
Clockwise from left: Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka, Jose Bosingwa, Petr Cech, Michael Ballack
Chelsea may have fallen short in the Premier League and Champions League, but a number of their players could find comfort at Euro 2008.

Eight of their stars are likely to be heavily involved, and the France trio of Claude Makelele, Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka will hope to ease the pain of a so-near-yet-so-far domestic campaign by leading their country to a second European championship trophy in three tournaments.

Portugal are also many people's tip to win, and Paulo Ferreira, Ricardo Carvahlo and Blues new boy Jose Bosingwa could go a long way to deciding how they fare.

As if that were not enough, the massive names of Petr Cech and Michael Ballack will be key to the hopes of the Czech Republic and Germany respectively, both of whom may be among the leading contenders come June.
