'Fiscal fortunes' at Euro 2012.

Who's in the money and who's going bust...

BOOM TIME

MEHMET SCHOLL



fans

It seems us hard-to-please lot at 7DAYS Towers aren't the only ones not jumping on the 'Mario Gomez is good' bandwagon. Germany legend Scholl reckons the striker's a bit of a statue, saying: "I have seen him run more [than against Portugal], but seldom less." Watch Gomez go on to become top scorer now...
