If a job needs doing then it needs doing well!
David Beckham is expected to front England’s official bid to host the 2018 or 2022 Football World Cup on Monday.
There will be a launch party at Wembley Stadium with past and present England players set to attend as well as a video contribution from Prince William.
Fifteen English cities have been short-listed as prospective venues for matches, and politicians from all three major parties will support the launch.

It’s a bit of a disgrace that the home of football hasn’t hosted the games showpiece tournament for such a long time. It’s worth noting that in the intervening time since 1966 Germany have held it twice and so have Mexico for gods sake!
Apparently this is being billed as Becks versus Barack Obama who is apparently pushing for the US to once again play host to the World Cup, they only had it in 1994!
National allegiance aside surely England is as capable of holding the tournament as any other nation. It has the most 40,000+ stadiums in Europe and arguably has the best league to boot.
Maybe it should all be decided via a Text Vote? Either way i am rooting for Susan Boyle to sing the national anthem at the opening ceremony, mind you she will be 97 years old by then!
