London’s Wembley Stadium has gained four matches as a result of Brussels being stripped of the right to host Euro 2020 games

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 global football in the country since Euro 96.

In fact, construction has not yet even begun, whereas the venue must be ready by 2019.

Dublin is among the 12 host cities selected for the new, one-off format and if the magic happens (we're talking Shane Long v Germany or James McClean v Wales type of magic) and we end up qualifying, then Ireland will play two group stage games in the Aviva Stadium.

Glasgow's Hampden Park had been hoping to stage the tournament's opening game but that honour has gone to Rome's Stadio Olimpico.

"Due to the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA Executive Committee during its meeting of 20th September 2017, the four matches initially scheduled to be held in Brussels will now be allocated to Wembley Stadium, London following a vote by the committee", UEFA wrote in a statement on their website.

Provided England qualify for the competition, which is being expanded from 16 teams to 24, they will play at least two of their group-stage fixtures at Wembley. "We absolutely need a new 45,000-seat stadium and we hope that the competent ministers will grant the permit in January so that a stadium for the 21st century can finally be built in our country".

"Missing out on Euro 2020 does not necessarily mean a death blow for our stadium plans", he said. Bilbao and Dublin were paired together.in Group E. The Welsh football association was "extremely disappointed", saying it may have been their only chance ever to host a Euro or World Cup final.
