  • Where is Euro 2020 and how many games will Wembley be hosting

UEFA made a decision to reallocate the three group-stage games and one round-of-16 game originally given to the Belgian capital because of delays in the project to build a new 60,000-capacity Eurostadium on the site of Heysel.

Wembley Stadium in London will host four Euro 2020 matches originally set to be staged in Brussels, UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin said on Thursday.

Cardiff and Stockholm had also been in contention to host the extra games.

Stadio Olympico in Rome was picked as the opening match venue for the tournament.

The majority of these studies included only people without heart disease and tracked participants for ten years or more . Researchers didn't specify whether one type of cheese was better than the rest.

It was due to stage matches in the group stage and round of 16.

But the exclusion of Brussels means the 90,000-seater venue will also get group games and a match in the first knockout round.

The Football Association of Wales said it was "extremely disappointed" with the news its bid for four Euro 2020 games had been unsuccessful.

London and Glasgow will play hosts to Group D, with Group E and Group F matches slated in Bilbao and Dublin, Munich and Budapest, respectively.

"The FAW complied with all of the bid requirements and has written to UEFA to request feedback on the decision so that it can understand the reasons behind the vote for future reference".

UEFA has previously indicated that qualified nations that are home to one of the 12 host cities would be assigned to that group - meaning Spain and Ireland would be automatically paired up.

"This has been a collective and collaborative process and we could not have done it without the support of the Government and the Mayor of London".

Well if and WHEN we qualify for the next major tournament, it looks as though the green faithful won't have to travel to far in order to see the Boys in Green play. "Today we don't know if they can build a stadium or not", he told reporters at UEFA headquarters in Nyon.
