Poznan rejoices in Euro 2012 selection

Poznan was the surprise pick to host matches for the Euro 2012 football tournament.

Besides Poznan, Wroclaw and Warsaw also received good news. Cracow and Chorzow will remain reserve cities, but are unlikely to get matches.

The opening matches will be played in Warsaw and the final in Kiev. UEFA administrators gave good marks to Poland for its progress to prepare for the tournament, but urged Ukraine to do more, and soon.

Four cities were initially planned for each country, but has been pared to four in Poland and two, at most, for Ukraine.
