Poland preps please Platini


UEFA chief Michel Platini was full of praise for Poland’s readiness for Euro 2012 during a review of the national Stadium in Warsaw.

After initial concerns over preparations the Frenchman said he was sure the tournament would be a complete success.

Platini has also visited the other Polish host cities of Gdansk, Wroclaw and Poznan.

“I am a happy President because I see a very beautiful stadium, very beautiful infrastructure everywhere. I have seen the four cities, the four airports, all the motorways, I am sure that the Euro will go very, very well,”

It appears Poland has also made an impression on the competing teams as several already qualified nations have jumped the gun and opted to set up their tournament bases there and not co-hosts Ukraine.

England and Germany are two high profile teams to do so without knowing where they will actually play.
