Wembley given more Euro 2020 games

Wembley will host three Euro 2020 group games a last-16 tie the semi-finals and the final

Brussels has lost it's Euro 2020 football matches after their "Eurostadium" ran into delays.

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 2020 tournament is the first European Championship to be played under a new format with group games spread across several countries and regions.

The four games were instead awarded to England's national stadium, Wembley.

Koen De Brabander, chief executive of the Belgian football association (KBVB) said he had attempted to get UEFA to hold off but Thursday's decision was not "a death blow for our stadium plans". This is in addition to the semifinals and final, which were already set for Wembley. "Today we don't know if they can build a stadium or not", he told reporters at UEFA headquarters in Nyon.

UEFA also divided host cities into pairs, with each pair sharing matches in a given group.

Glenn also thanked the Government and Mayor of London for their help in securing the games, which will be staged in a post-Brexit Britain.

Bilbao and Dublin were paired together.in Group E.

The FA and Khan added that they would now work on a programme of "community activity" around the month-long tournament, while sports minister Tracey Crouch said it was "great news".
