  • Wembley to host seven Euro 2020 matches including final after Brussels political row over stadium

The decision means that Wembley will stage seven games in total - the final, both semi-finals, a last-16 match and three group games - resulting in the biggest festival of worldwide football in the country since Euro 96.

Belgium's capital city has been ruled out as a planned new stadium is still to be built and Uefa has not received the necessary guarantees.

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.

Qualified host nations are guaranteed two games at home.

While the full schedule is still to be confirmed by UEFA, the Stadio Olimpico in Rome will stage the opening game.

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

"This means Wembley will host a total of seven matches since London was already set to stage the semi-finals and final of the tournament", it said in a statement.

Staged across 12 countries, Euro 2020's unusual format was former UEFA president Michel Platini's brainchild - a one-off gesture to celebrate the tournament's 60th birthday. The Welsh football association was "extremely disappointed", saying it may have been their only chance ever to host a Euro or World Cup final.

Glenn, who has previously pledged that the FA will sink millions into upgrading the national stadium before the tournament, paid tribute to Mayor of London Sadiq Khan for his support.

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.
