Russia is hosting World Cup 2018. What do you think of it?
Cristiano Ronaldo is going to cry.. again!! ;)
It's great for Russia. The quality of Russian football has been growing a lot over the last few years and with them hosting the world cup its only gonna grow faster. We could see the league standard grow as high as England and Spain!
I was kinda pleased that Russia have won it because its their first World Cup.
How they beat england with our bid and report i dont know, there is something corrupt in fifa in my opinion, nothing to do with football at all, money being back handed all over the place, and qatar? thats a joke, they have no 'stadia' whatsoever, yes its 12 years but still, football is nothing in the middle east, and playing in 45 degree heat, disgraceful. Rant over, but still rather angry.
Well, bit of a dodgy selection in my opinion. There had to be a lot of money involved. Anyway..
World & Euro Cups have a very special atmosphere that every single football fan should experience at least once a lifetime (well once you go, you wanna go again next time :)), but I don't think I'll be traveling to Russia.
So far I've been to Euro 2000 (NL&BE), World 2006 (Germany) and Euro 2008 (CH&AT) always following Czech Republic
Unforgetable memories...
The 2022 World Cup went to a team with one of the best leagues in the world and one of the richest footballing histories in football. I am, of course talking about Qatar.
It's all about the moneyyyy! (dum dum dee dum dum)
good bit of bribery and corruption gone on there me thinks!
Money, money, money
Must be funny
In the rich man's world!!
I am so not happy about the result!
Just as a curiosity...

World Cup 2018
1st round: England, 2 votes; Netherlands/Belgium, 4; Spain/Portugal, 7; Russia, 9
2nd round: Netherlands/Belgium, 2 votes; Spain/Portugal, 7; Russia, 13

Looks like England bid was eliminated after the first round...

World Cup 2022
1st round: Australia, 1 vote; Japan, 3; South Korea, 4; Qatar, 11; USA, 3
2nd round: Japan, 2 votes; South Korea, 5; Qatar, 10; USA, 5
3rd round: South Korea, 5 votes; Qatar, 11; USA, 6
4th round: Qatar, 14 votes; USA, 8
What a shame for USA! I would prefer that USA would be host of WC2022.
Ah well, that's why we call them the MaFIFA eh? ;) all they care about is the money, not the football. I also think it is kind of unfair that, 'real' European countries aren't allowed to organise a world cup if it has been in Russia.. I mean, how many Western Europeans are actually going to drive 4000 kilometers of bad Eastern European roads to Russia?
Huh? Why are those votes so inconsistent?
World Cup 2018
1st round: England, 2 votes; Netherlands/Belgium, 4; Spain/Portugal, 7; Russia, 9
2nd round: Netherlands/Belgium, 2 votes; Spain/Portugal, 7; Russia, 13

So 2 of the people that voted netherlands/belgium suddenly changed their mind and vote for Russia? Same thing happens at the 2022 bid:
1st round: Australia, 1 vote; Japan, 3; South Korea, 4; Qatar, 11; USA, 3
2nd round: Japan, 2 votes; South Korea, 5; Qatar, 10; USA, 5
3rd round: South Korea, 5 votes; Qatar, 11; USA, 6
4th round: Qatar, 14 votes; USA, 8

Suddenly one guy that voted Qatar in the 1st round decides to pick the US/korea instead.
