Reports Say Russia Is In The Frame To Host Delayed Euro 2020 Outright

Russia are reportedly in the frame to host the delayed Euro 2020 outright rather than the original plan of the tournament being held across 12 cities.

Amsterdam, Baku, Bilbao, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome and St Petersburg were the 12 nations to host matches.
