The second-biggest soccer tournament in the world, Euro 2012, is now in full-swing, with several countries playing their opening matches this weekend.While the action on the pitch is always exciting, the supporters in the stands are often just as entertaining.

On the next few pages we will take a look at some of the craziest soccer fans that we saw this weekend.

Some Venetian Gondoliers made the trip to support Italy

At some point, are the sunglasses still necessary with these suits?

The Dutch fans never disappoint with their costumes

Well, we could have done without this one

Thank goodness there have not been any vuvuzelas. Just plenty of scarves.

Bunny rabbit ears?

Wigs and big hats are a common theme

This looks like a German hat crossed with a Native American touch

If it can fit on your head, somebody will make a hat out of it

This was the wild scene in Berlin during Germany's match

The crowd went on forever and the party never stopped

Simba is a alive? He's alive!

'LOST'-like numbers?

If the Starsky and Hutch car was a suit, it would look like these

This man rode his bike from Ireland (we assume he got help crossing water)

Irish Bros!

And there were plenty of Leprechauns

...everywhere we looked during Ireland's match

Some more real than others

These body suits say 'I'm classy, but I'm here to party'...or something

Body painting while drinking is never a good idea

The Croatian and Irish supporters partied in unison prior to their match

And even showed mutual respect during the match

A Heinz bottle? Sure, why not.

Bizarre. That's an Irish supporter mimicking Mario Balotelli's 'Why Always Me?' T-shirt

Are these Croatian fans wearing water polo caps?

This supporter gave 'Kiss Cam' a whole new meaning

The one thing we learned was that crying and body paint don't mix

Now check out the French Open champion talking about her long road back to the top
