Hopefully the votes were in before tonight as what happened at Birmingham was not a very good way to show this is the right country to host the World Cup. I hope England gets it but it's going to be terrible for the team, pressure will be enormous.
I'd like to see England as the chosen for the 2018 WC.The English people's passion for football is something that deserves to be seen in a world cup. Perhaps these accusations of corruption have hampered England. Anyway, I don't rule out to see England as a Plan B for 2014, considering how the things are here in Brazil.
I always find interesting the world cup be held in countries "unprecedented." And I think it will be interesting in one WC "on ice.
The choice of Qatar for 2022 it's a kinda strange. it looks is going to be an artificial cup. The heat is hellish and FIFA ranked the candidacy of Qatar as high risk. The money is there.Hotels, ditto. Let's see what happens with the rest. It's a country with a lot of prohibitions. Since homosexuality, drinking, religion .... Let's see.
Anything we did would have been used against us yet the negative aspects of the winning bids - like Russia's mafia state for example - was brushed over. We would get nowehre if we pulled out fo FIFA and probably don't have enoough global support to lead a breakaway. What we need to do though is increase our political influence and power in order to try and force through change.
The last WC, captains from each team read out anti-racism messages after the national anthems, doing it at the 2018 WC would just make a mockery of everything the governing bodies are trying with Anti-Racism campaigns.
