Poland is ready to replace Ukraine with Germany for Euro-2012

Germany could co-host Euro 2012 with Poland should original co-organisers Ukraine prove unable, new Poland football federation president Grzegorz Lato said on Thursday.

‘Germany could join it (the plan to organise Euro 2012),’ Lato told Polish television when asked him what could happen should Ukraine be unable to honour their original commitment.

Earlier on Thursday, Ukraine Euro 2012 tournament organiser Evgeny Villinsky said financial problems had meant Ukraine’s preparations to host the tournament hade come to a halt.

Mr Villinsky added, according to the Interfax-Ukraine news agency, that the world-wide financial crisis and ill-advised management were the reasons for the stopping of work to prepare for the tournament.

Lato added however that Poland would be able to organise it by themselves though expressed his hope that ‘Ukraine would be able to finish the preparations in time.’
