"Due to the Eurostadium project's failure to meet the conditions imposed by the UEFA Executive Committee during its meeting of 20th September 2017, the four matches initially scheduled to be held in Brussels will now be allocated to Wembley Stadium, London following a vote by the committee", UEFA wrote in a statement on their website.

An additional four games at the 2020 European Championships will take place in the North London suburb of Wembley.

Belgium's capital city has been ruled out as a planned new stadium is still to be built and Uefa has not received the necessary guarantees.

Provided England qualify for the competition, which is being expanded from 16 teams to 24, they will play at least two of their group-stage fixtures at Wembley.

Despite being in the running as alternative options, Cardiff's Principality Stadium and Stockholm's Friends Arena missed out on the chance to replace Brussels. Wembley Stadium was already set to host the semifinals and finals of the tournament.

Group A games will be played in Rome and Baku, while Group B games will take place in Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen.
