One problem I see with an Iberian joint bid is that the Spainish are likey going to want to use as many venues as possible were as the Portuguese are likey to want to use as few as possible given the white elephants euro 2004 created.

A joint Iberian bid will never happen, end of story.

The joint bid is an idea from National Leagues presidents. But I think that Portugal must spend money in other things that new stadia. Euro 2004 was enough for us.

haha true, but people say deliberately provocative things, followed by "(lets see who takes the bait)" making anybody who replies look like a tit regardless of how good their point was!

What a surprise that on the English Language version it was some dumb Wallonian telling us about the bid, who could barely speak English. A far better bid would be a Greater Netherlandish bid, of Core Netherlands and Flanders.

As you might know French people can't speak English just like English people can't speak french.

Spain won't go for the world cup in 2018 as they had it in the 80s. China or England are probably at the head of the pack.

What about a Benlux bid or one from Latin America?
