Any preferences here? I’d like to see England get it, but they won’t, despite their wonderful ambassadorial team, the “Three Lions” of David Cameron, David Beckham and Prince William. But the inclusion of the future Queen Kate would have impressed Sepp Blatter no end, I feel, with some sort of indecent proposal clinching the deal.
Russia will probably win. I imagine they have the superior ability to bribe FIFA, which the gentlemanly English lack. Spain '82 was the best World Cup ever so it would be a good venue too but I don’t know why they aren’t bidding alone. If they felt unable to mount a solo bid they should have included all of the PIGS countries, not just the Portuguese.
Has to be between the US and Australia for 2022, doesn’t it? Qatar FFS? Melbourne Cricket Ground for the final sounds good.
