Euro 2012 playoff seeds announced

Turkey is not top seeded team in the playoffs !

Turkish Football Federation web site( made a huge error yesterday, announcing Turkey as a top seeded team in the play-offs!

Well that was not truth and it was bogus news from TFF!

UEFA have announced the seeds for the Euro 2012 playoffs, after the final round of qualifying matches were completed on Tuesday.

The four teams seeded for the draw are 2004 hosts and beaten finalists Portugal, Giovanni Trapattoni's Republic of Ireland, Euro 1996 runners-up Czech Republic and Slaven Bilic's Croatia.

The four other nations in the draw are 2008 semifinalists Turkey and three countries bidding to reach their first major soccer tournament -- Montenegro, Estonia and Bosnia Herzegovina.

The playoff draw will be made in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev on Thursday, with the two-legged ties set to be played on November 11/12 and 15.

Next year's tournament will be the 14th European championship and will be co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine
