Uefa reveals Euro 2012 shortlist
European Championship trophy
Greece won the last European Championship in 2004
Uefa has named a shortlist of three candidates to host the European Championship in 2012.

Italy and joint bids from Croatia/Hungary and Poland/Ukraine made the final list, with the decision on the hosts to be made in December 2006.

European football's governing body rejected bids from Greece and Turkey.

Switzerland/Austria will host the 13th European Championship in 2008, an event which began back in 1960 and has had nine different winners.

Greece were the surprise package of last year's tournament, beating hosts Portugal 1-0 to win their first major football championship.

The first European Championship was won by the USSR, while Germany lead the way with the most number of wins - three.
