Football Association chairman Greg Dyke admits that it will be a "great honour" for Wembley to host the semi-finals and final of the European Championship in 2020.

Chairman Greg Dyke has revealed that the Football Association had to work hard to earn the right to host the semi-finals and final of the European Championship in 2020.

Wembley Stadium will be the venue for the concluding three games of the tournament after edging out Munich, and Dyke has admitted that it will be a "great honour" to play an important part in the competition that will be played across 13 cities.

The 67-year-old told reporters: "This bidding process was open to more than 50 countries so for Wembley to ultimately be recognised in this way is testament to a lot of hard work behind the scenes.

"It will be a great honour to be a part of what will surely be a superb celebration of 60 years of the UEFA European Championship."

England haven't hosted a major football tournament since staging the European Championship in 1996.
