The US Fucking A and Auzzies deserve the next two...
They so massively don't.
It really, really, really should be England. And I can't stand most of the English.
US had the World Cup in 1994. That's 20 years ago. In World Cup terms that's nothing. The United States don't deserve a World Cup for at least another four or five.
IMO England was the right choice for 2018, everything was there, except the fooking 1.5 million dollar bribes that ended up with it awarded to Qartar. With the crap going on over in Qartar now, one would hope they will lose their hosting and it will end up coming to England, one of a very short list of countries that could step up and host it on "short notice"
Sad to say, but until Blatter and the piss weasels he surrounds himself with are tossed out, there is always going to be "questions", might come down to Big Money countries telling FIFA to pack sand and holding their own Tourney
Fifa’s probe into the controversial bidding race for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups has taken another twist after its own investigator Michael Garcia complained that a summary of his report that cleared Qatar of substantive wrongdoing misrepresented his conclusions.
Garcia, a former New York district attorney, has spent 18 months investigating the convoluted and controversial World Cup race that ended with the selection of Russia for 2018 and Qatar for 2022.
But when German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert today closed the investigation after ruling that there was not enough evidence to justify re-opening the process, a furious Garcia said the summary he had published did not reflect his findings.
“Today’s decision by the Chairman of the Adjudicatory Chamber contains numerous materially incomplete and erroneous representations of the facts and conclusions detailed in the Investigatory Chamber’s report,” said Garcia, who has spent 18 months gathering evidence from the nine bidding nations and interviewed more than 75 witnesses.
He said that he would now appeal himself to the Fifa ethics committee. The incendiary intervention lays bare the tension at the heart of Fifa’s two chamber ethics committee.
Despite promising anonymity for whistleblowers in order to encourage them to give evidence, Garcia has favoured publishing as much of his 430-page report as possible – with redactions where required.
But Eckert has insisted on publishing only his interim 42-page summary of the findings, with a promise that any sanctions against individuals would be decided by next spring.
The issue has also split the Fifa executive committee, with several members including Uefa president Michel Platini, Britain’s representative Jim Boyce and the American Sunil Gulati calling for the report to be published in full.
Fifa’s supposedly independent ethics committee was divided into two chambers – an investigatory arm and an adjudicatory one – in the wake of the avalanche of corruption allegations that surrounded the Zurich-based governing body around the time of the December 2010 World Cup vote and Sepp Blatter’s subsquent re-election the following April.

cjjagzmoni: Pogba is a good lad minus the showboating..I think at Juventus he had Older players like Pirlo,Chiellini,Marchisio,Bonucci who shout and screams at him so he was more serious at Juve ,We dont have those type of leaders at United to caution him.
