BARCELONA, Spain (AP) -- The head of Poland's European Championship operations says co-host Ukraine hasn't met expectations for organizing this summer's tournament.

Wojciech Folejewski says Poland "expected more" from its European Championship co-host, which has faced delays in construction of stadiums, hotels and other infrastructure in the run-up to the June 8-July 1 tournament.

Folejewski says accommodation has been the biggest problem for his easterly neighbor, and the chief operating officer says Ukraine will be hard pressed to deal with the influx of fans from Germany, Netherlands, England and Denmark.

But Folejewski says Ukraine's "determination" will see it come good in time for the event, which he calls "a great adventure and a big challenge."
