You know what the annoying thing is in all of this:
1998 - France
2002 - Japan/South Korea
2006 - Germany
2010 - South Africa
2014 - Brazil
2018 - Russia
2022 - Qatar
2026 - Likely to be turn of far east
2030 - North America/Mexico
2034 - African Nation
2038 - Turn of another european nation.
As you can see it is likely to be 2038 by the time the european continent is considered for this prestigious event again, and obviously then there
will be bids from a group of different european countries.
Sad thing is England will very probably not get it then either, so will never have a world cup in my lifetime.
Shocking really the corruption that cost one of the best technical bids its chance.
England definitely deserved a chance to host this event - we gave the world this sport and it should be allowed to come home for the best event in the
Then the 2022 event - Qatar now claiming they need the tournament running in January as the temperatures are too high in the summer over there? Were
they not bidding to host the world cup, a tournament ALWAYS held in the summer since it started, and therefore their bid should have fell over if they
could only host it at a time unnaceptable to the leagues that run in January where all the players ply their trade?
Just more evidence of corruption.
