Ya cuz they are like the same countries. Fifa wouldn't do that! That's like Zimbabwe hosting then South Africa hosting the world cup.

Egypt has other issues to deal with on social, economical and political scale.
Interesting to know, still it doesn't make Qatar more worthy.

Meh. Not too nervous as a USA resident. Pretty sure we'll get it, but even if not, we had it recently in 94 and it's virtually in the bag for 2026.

I'll second that, my only qualm with AUS's bid being the timezone issue which may put off FIFA if they're being greedy...

In numbers they may now be higher, but economically for 2018/22 at least, Europe and the Americas bankroll FIFA.

I'm worried about the English bid, but still confident for Iberia...
