Poland and Ukraine need to give cast-iron guarantees over their two main stadiums if they are to keep the Euro 2012 finals, UEFA president Michel Platini warned on Saturday.

Platini is to head a top-level inspection visit to the two eastern European countries next week and will focus on the stadiums in Warsaw and Kiev.

Platini, speaking in Vienna, denied however that Italy have already been lined up as replacements. He said: "We will do everything we can to hold it in Poland or Ukraine. There is no back-up plan, we have never had any second thoughts or other thoughts and we respect our decision to go to Poland and Ukraine."
