Italy face French tussle Friday 10 December, 2004


Italy and France are set to make bids to host the European Championships in the summer of 2012.

The Italian Football Federation have recently admitted that they will make an offer if they receive enough government backing.

While reports in France on Friday claim that the French Football Association are pondering whether to submit a rival bid for the tournament.

All proposals for the 2012 event must be submitted to UEFA by 31 January 2005, even if a decision won’t be made until December 2006.

Italy last hosted the European Championships in 1980 and they organised the World Cup a decade later.

France, who staged the 1998 World Cup, last played host to the European Championships in 1984. They won both trophies.
