1:09 pm
a total of fifty one games but who will host the prestigious event germany are regarded as frontrunners you wafers of valuation committee has already backed the bid the german football association see this as a chance to follow up on the success of the two thousand and six world cup and they're clear on the benefits of their bid. we have the stadia the infrastructure the accommodation we also have great fan signs we're basically ready to host the euros tomorrow. but a shadow looms over germany's bid them as it is ill if they also midfielders meeting with turkey's president redshift have added one caused an uproar that eventually ended in retiring from the germany national scene he accused the german football association of racism and discrimination. could that be an advantage for turkey the country is confident its bid can stand on
