NYON, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA has picked London to replace Brussels as a host city for the 2020 European Championship, giving Wembley Stadium an additional four games on top of the semifinals and final.

Brussels has been dropped from the 13-nation hosting plan because of delays starting to build the Eurostadium project.

UEFA also picked Rome to host the opening game of the 24-team tournament.

Wembley Stadium was chosen in 2014 to host the semifinals and final.
