We are drawing ever nearer to FIFA’s decision on who they wish to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cup finals tournaments and it appears that all the talk of corruption and undercover investigations have left England as big underdogs to secure their first hosting of the showpiece tournament since 1966. One would hope that Sepp Blatter and Co. would vote according to the benefits of each bid rather than seek to punish a country for the actions of their independent press but most believe this will indeed be the case.
Bookmakers currently place England as third favourites behind Russia and the joint bid from Spain and Portugal and this is despite the fact that FIFA reports into the profitability and suitability of the bidding parties clearly suggest that England’s bid is the one that fulfils best the guidelines drawn up by the World Football Governing body.
In the interest of fairness we have placed a poll for you to vote on this matter (to the right of this article), but as we also want any such poll to reflect and replicate the evident corruption and back scratching endemic within FIFA, we will not prevent anyone casting as many votes as they wish for whichever of the choices they think most deserving of hosting the 2018 World Cup.
