The Euro 2012 squads have all now been announced and we are in a position to calculate some of the stats.
The youngest player at Euro 2012 will be Jetro Willems, currently of PSV, who is still 18. He is followed by two England players: Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and young keeper Jack Butland.
However, the Germany squad is youngest on average with the oldest squad being the Russians followed by the Irish.
The oldest player will be Kostas Chalkias who was a member of the famous winning squad of 2004. Amongst the OAPs are also Nikos Liberopoulos and Andriy Shevchenko.
The oldest German is Polish-born Miroslav Klose who will be looking to add to his amazing tally of 63 goals in 115 games for Germany.

In plenty of time for the upcoming European Championship, the Association of Football Statisticians is hereby relaunching our England national team site to the general public.
The site contains details of every 'A' international match, every line-up and every player to have donned the England shirt. In typically English fashion, it also includes all the opponents. The first match was, of course, against our mighty northern neighbours and the site faithfully records all encounters between the two giants of world football, all the trials and tribulations, as well as the famous world cup victory, against the Germans, of 1966.
We name this site England and may she bring fair winds and good fortune to all who surf on her.
