FIFA president Sepp Blatter has criticised UEFA's decision to stage Euro 2020 across several cities across the continent.
"A tournament belongs in one country," Blatter told Kicker.
"That way, you create identity and euphoria. Like, for example, the 'summer fairytale' in Germany [the 2006 World Cup].
"The 2020 tournament has been wasted; it's no longer a European Championships. It has got to be referred to as something else, only I don't know what.
"A European Championships like this lacks a heart and soul.
"I told Michel Platini that the former Libyan head of state Colonel Gaddafi had spoken to me when the 2010 World Cup was awarded about the event taking place in 53 countries of Africa, with the final taking place in South Africa.
"He believed in that idea, and I told him it was unthinkable. So I told Platini, his idea is not novel."
