Polish prime minister Donald Tusk has joined the people of Poland and Ukraine, and Europe's football enthusiasts, in looking forward to UEFA EURO 2012.
In his address to the UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying draw ceremony in Warsaw, Tusk praised the team spirit that is prevalent in the two host counties as they prepare for the tournament in two years' time.
"Today the entire footballing Europe is looking at Warsaw," he said. "We have waited for this day for three years, ever since UEFA awarded the hosting of the European Football Championship to Poland and Ukraine. These three years have been a period of hard work in both countries.
"The EURO 2012 infrastructure is being constructed, including stadia, airports, motorways and hotels," Tusk added. "Just like in football, we have based our Polish-Ukrainian cooperation on partnership, ambition, mutual trust and determination. It really is a good example of teamwork. I am looking forward to seeing you all at EURO 2012 in Poland and in Ukraine."
