France to bid for Euro 2016, but not with Italy

The French soccer federation (FFF) has submitted an application to host the 2016 European championships, the authority said in a statement on Friday.

"The (federation's) Federal council has confirmed France has applied to organise Euro 2016," the FFF said.

National federations have until March 9 to apply to European governing body UEFA over the hosting rights for the 2016 tournament.

France previously hosted the European championships in 1984 and also held the World Cup in 1998, tournaments they both won.
