Bayern Munich's Toni: Italy deserved favourites for Euro2008

Bayern Munich ace Luca Toni says Italy are deserved favourites for this year's European Championships.

"It's natural that we are amongst the favourites," Toni explained. "This is a special season for me and one of my objectives is Euro 2008.

"But it will be a very difficult Group - for me it is the "Group of Death" - and then we will probably have to take on Spain.

"We will go to the European Championships with the same target as usual - to win. We are world champions and that gives us an even greater obligation to go for victory."
