France beat Turkey by just a single vote to land Euro2016 after Italy were eliminated in the first round of voting.

Jean-Pierre Escalettes, president of the French Football Federation, said: ‘This is a beautiful day for us.

‘It is a moment of intense emotion to know that in 2016 France will welcome European football and will fulfil its promises.

‘What counts for us is to have the full confidence of UEFA and this trust will not be betrayed.

‘We also understand the frustration of Italy and Turkey – particularly Turkey, who lost by a single vote after bidding for a third time.’

France last hosted the European Championships in 1984 when they won the tournament by a side captained by current Uefa president Michel Platini.

Gerrard who pulled out of another training session is rumoured to have been suffering from ongoing fitness issues all season, which could explain his comparatively poor form for Liverpool in a  disappointing 2009/10 campaign.

However, the FA have said Gerrard suffered no ill-effects from the incident yesterday – even though he was forced to watch the remainder of the session from the sidelines, which included a practice penalty shootout.

Gerrard may miss England’s final significant World Cup warm-up match against Japan on sunday.

In better news from the England physio room, it has emerged Gareth Barry will most likely be fit to take his place in the 23-man squad for South Africa.
