All options open for Euro 2020: Uefa's Platini
NYON, Switzerland (AFP) - Union of European Football Associations (Uefa) president Michel Platini on Friday said that he was open to all options for the European championships in 2020, a day after the ruling body said that the tournament would be held across the continent.
"It's a blank page at the moment," said the former France captain. "I can't tell you where we're going to go. We haven't yet gone into the details. It's a one-off decision."
Platini first mooted the idea of holding the 60th anniversary of European football's premier competition in a number of countries before the final of this year's edition in Poland and Ukraine, which was won by defending champions Spain.
On Thursday, Uefa's executive committee was virtually unanimous in supporting the idea, which Platini said had been circulating for a number of years and had been the subject of numerous meetings and discussions with national associations.
