UEFA has chosen four Polish cities and Ukraine's Kiev to host the 2012 European soccer championship but has postponed a final decision on other Ukrainian venues, UEFA president Michel Platini said.

"There are still many problems to be resolved in Ukraine. There are huge infrastructure problems," Platini told a news conference in Bucharest, through an interpreter, on Wednesday.

The four Polish cities are Warsaw, Poznan, Wroclaw and Gdansk, he said. Platini named Lviv, Donetsk and Kharkiv as the Ukrainian candidates awaiting confirmation with a final decision to be made Nov 30.
