Brussels Loses Euro 2020 Matches To Wembley

Wembley will host seven games at Euro 2020 after UEFA dropped Brussels as a venue because of stadium problems.

Both Wales' Principality Stadium and Sweden's Stockholm Friend's Arena had been hoping to replace Brussels, but UEFA opted against the venues for last season's Champions League and Europa League finals.

"The FAW wishes the FA and Wembley Stadium the very best for UEFA EURO 2020, which is sure to be a fantastic tournament".

The building of a new Brussels stadium for the tournament had run into delays involving the applications for construction and environmental permits.

In addition to the host-city pairs, UEFA also announced that the opening match of the tournament will be played at Rome's Stadio Olimpico.

Group A games will be played in Rome and Baku, while Group B games will take place in Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen.

Xbox said that these will be the only in-game items available to purchase during PUBG's Game Preview period - so no loot crates. Miramar is in its final testing phase and should be deployed before PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is updated to v1.0.

We know what you're thinking, 'we've only qualified for the Euros three times ('88, '12, '16)' but the new 24 team format means it's now easier for Ireland to get through the group stages as we found out in Euro 2016.

Bilbao and Dublin were paired Group E.

FA chief executive Martin Glenn said: "We are delighted to help UEFA by hosting the additional four matches at Wembley Stadium".

"London mayor Sadiq Khan said the decision reinforces the city's "reputation as the sporting capital of the world" and confirms that "#LondonIsOpen".

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.

Ceferin said the decision followed the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA executive committee in September 2017.
