Austria-Swiss favourites

Geneva: The hosts of the 2008 European championship will be announced on Thursday and the joint bid from Austria and Switzerland is favourite to land the second most important soccer tournament in the world.

Among the seven bids, former political foes like Greece and Turkey, and Bosnia and Croatia, have cast aside their historical rivalries to enter joint proposals to host the event.

Scotland and Ireland, and a four-way Nordic candidature are also optimistic about their chances. (Reuters)
