Robin Van Persie goes into the tournament as one of the most feared strikers on the planet. He managed 30 goals in 38 games for Arsenal last season.
Karim Benzema, France
France's Karim Benzema is the top French scorer in La Liga history having helped Real Madrid to the title over rivals Barcelona. Keep a close eyIf France are to progress, the link up between Benzema and Ribery will be vital.
Robert Lewandowski, Poland
Poland striker Robert Lewandowski has caught the attention of Manchester United after a brilliant season with Borussia Dortmund.
Fernando Llorente, Spain
Llorente is one of the few Spain players not to be selected from Real Madrid or Barcelona. What a shocker, right? He has a good chance of a starting nod, considering David Villa will be out and Fernando Torres' erratic form. Will Spain's manager Vicente del Bosque trust the Athletic Bilbao talisman this summer? We'll have to wait and find out.
Wayne Rooney, England
Wayne Rooney has been in his usual club form, scoring goals for fun this season. England will have to make do without him for the opening group matches of Euro 2012 and he will be a sore miss. Rooney has the potential to set the tournament alight, but we'll have to wait to see his talents on full display.
Mario Balotelli, Italy
Love him or loathe him, you cannot deny Balotelli has talent. At times, his performances for Manchester City have come into question. Yet, there is no doubt that he scored important goals on the way to the Premier League title. Balotelli will certainly have a major say if Italy's to make a deep run at the Euros this summer.
Mario Gomez, Germany
How fast does time pass by? Just ask Germany's top striker Gomez, who continues to be the top prolific marksman both domestically and in Europe for the German squad. He now has the opportunity to cement his name at an international level. Bookies favorite Gomez to be top scorer at Euro 2012.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Netherlands
Holland's Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has finally rediscovered his scoring touch. He has been linked throughout his career with top clubs, playing for both Real Madrid and Milan. That was all before moving to Schalke where he finally seems to have settled and started scoring the goals that made him a prospect in the first place. Keep a close-eye (notice his black eye?) on KJH this summer.
Olivier Giroud, France
Montpellier's French forward Giroud has been given the chance to prove himself on the international stage after impressing in Ligue 1. His goals helped Montpellier earn the French crown this past season and could help the French skip past a complicated group in the Euros this summer.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sweden
Ibrahimovic heads into Euro 2012 on almost a goal every game ratio for his club AC Milan. Sweden were eliminated in the group stage last time out in the Euros. His goals could propel them to at least a knockout stage berth.
