The European giants last hosted a major tournament in 2006, when they welcomed the world to the FIFA World Cup, and last hosted the European Championship in 1988, when the Netherlands won the trophy.

On Thursday afternoon, UEFA confirmed that the German bid had beaten the Turkish bid to host the 2024 tournament.

The two European nations went head to head in their bid to host the Euros in six years' time, but the majority of UEFA's Executive Committee gave their vote to Germany, as announced by UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.

Meanwhile, Euro 2020 will be the first to be held in 12 cities across 12 European countries.
