The story that Boris Johnson has offered to host more than the 7 games already scheduled to take place in the UK has been in the news this week. As the Covid-19 vaccine continues to role out and with the multiple stadiums and cities that could host the tournament, the UK is seen as a viable option for the major showpiece.
According to Sky Sports a UEFA spokesperson said:
“Since the tournament was announced, as to be staged across 12 countries, it has remained UEFA’s intention to stage it in 12 countries.”
On the back of the stories in the news the FA have said:
“UEFA is committed to holding UEFA Euro 2020 across 12 European cities, according to the schedule agreed last summer. There are no other plans being pursued.
“The FA’s focus remains on delivering the seven games at Wembley inclusive of both semi-finals and the showpiece final and welcome all efforts being made by government to ensure as many fans can attend”
Gareth Southgate knows he has some big decisions, especially in the number 10 role, ahead of finalising his squad for the Euro’s as he discussed yesterday in an interview on Talksport.
