English fans are in 12th place, while the French and Germans are the most unwilling to make sacrifices.
But what would they loses? England fans would lose their bottle – with 57 per cent abstaining from alcohol for at least one month to see England lift the trophy.
On average, 13 per cent of European football fans and 14 per cent of English would give up alcohol forever to see their team win the tournament – however zero per cent of Greeks would be willing to make this sacrifice.
On average, 29 per cent of Europeans would give up sex for at least one month to see their team win the Euros this year – although 30 per cent of Italians and English would not be prepared to give up slap and tickle for a single day!
A whopping 18 per cent of Danish fans would give up sex forever in exchange for a Danish Euro 2012 victory!

CHELSEA striker Salomon Kalou may be a fan of scoring – but he has more fun doing it with his clothes on.
For the Ivorian, whose team take on Manchester United today in a vital Premier League showdown, would rather play 90 minutes of football than indulge in a bit of slap and tickle.
He said: “If I had to choose which was better, football or sex, I’d say football.
“It’s 90 minutes of pure pleasure and I can’t always say that about sex.
“But it depends on the fixture and the score!”
Whatever Salomon – not sure you’d say the same if you played for Scunthorpe.
