(PAUSES FOR TRANSLATION) We will do everything so that we do not let you or the fans or players down." 7.

MEETING IN PROGRESS STORY: UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin told on Wednesday (November 27) Russian President Vladimir Putin he was certain the country would do a good job hosting four European championship soccer matches next year.

Ceferin was speaking during a visit to Russia days after a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) committee recommended Russia be barred from hosting major events.

It said Moscow had been found to have provided it with doctored laboratory data.

WADA officials have said Russia's hosting of four Euro 2020 matches, including a quarterfinal, would not be affected by the recommendations.
