France confirmed as host nation for Euro 2016

France has been chosen as the host nation for Euro 2016, beating rivals Italy and Turkey to the honour at a ceremony in Geneva on Friday afternoon.

UEFA president Michel Platini, who was not allowed to have an input in the bidding process, announced that his home country had won the right to host the tournament which will be the first to include 24 teams.

UEFA's executive committee favoured France over rival bids from Turkey and Italy, meaning the country will host its first major finals since the 1998 World Cup, which les Bleus won when beating Brazil in the final. France also hosted the 1938 World Cup and the 1984 European Championship.

Italy, which had its bid championed by former AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini, hosted the European Championship in 1968 and the World Cup in 1934 and 1990. Turkey has never hosted a major championship.
