matches during Euro 2012, which the country is co-hosting with
Ukraine from June 8 to July 1.

enough to be [located] right in between," Wroclaw mayor Rafal
Dutkiewicz was quoted as saying on the south-western city
stadium's official website.
"We bet that after the Euro emotions in June there will
still be hunger for more spectacular matches."
At this year's European Championships, Wroclaw will host
three Group A matches, featuring Poland, Greece, Russia and
Brazil are gearing up for the 2014 World Cup on home soil.
Their preparations took a blow when Ricardo Teixeira, the
