Mid-way through the group stage of Euro 2012 , and about to finish the second round, there have been some eye-opening individual player performances. The tournament is already delivering poetic displays and tales for veteran players  who were written off but making timely comebacks. Young players too are making their mark, laying down ripe and promising futures. Strikers are scoring like they should and international players are showing their worth in the international arena.
The people and the pundits have been anticipating the start of Euro 2012  where dreams are made and careers sealed or broken - with critics abuzz with expections from the individual players as much as pressure on the national teams. Some of those players under the spotlight haven't been able to show their worth so far, while others still are proving they aren't quite history.
