UEFA officials have confirmed that the Euro 2020 Finals and Semi-Finals will be hosted in England’s capital of London, at the Wembley stadium…..

The European football tournament will finally make it’s way back to English soil, as officials confirmed today that Wembley has won the vote to host the Euro 2020 semi-finals and finals stages of the competition. Check out what England’s FA chairman Greg Dyke had to say:

“This bidding process was open to more than 50 Uefa countries so for Wembley to be recognised in this way is testament to a lot of hard work behind the scenes.”

England manager Roy Hodgson also chimed in on the subject of Wembley hosting the Euro 2020 finals:

“For the young team that is emerging, many of those players will be at their best football years in 2020,” the 67-year-old said.

“If the young players of today don’t use this to spur them on then they are making a mistake.

“By 2020 some of them will be playing their fifth tournament and that is the type of experience you can’t buy.”

So the pride of English football, Wembley stadium has pipped Glasgow and Dublin to become the host of the Euro 2020 finals….

Welsh FA chief executive Jonathan Ford said: “We had a very strong technical bid, we have an excellent stadium and record in staging major events.

“But it came down to a vote and, unfortunately, Wales were not successful this time.”
