Turkey does not regret turning down hosting the final week of Euro 2020 and its decision can be vindicated by earning the right to stage the 2024 tournament, the vice-president of the country's football federation (TFF) said.After losing to France by one vote, Turkey was offered the semi-finals and final of Euro 2020 -- a tournament which will be staged across 12 cities in 12 nations -- TFF vice-president Servet Yardimci, a UEFA Executive Committee member, said.Instead they told then UEFA president Michel Platini, who backed Turkey's 2016 bid, they would rather hold out for 2024 .Germany withdrew from bidding for the Euro 2020 semis-finals and final to concentrate on a 2024 bid -- allowing England to host the tournament's climax at Wembley.
