Politics, everybody knows it was politics... Portugal did a magniffecent job, but no way the bid was better then the Spanish one.
I liked that it went to Portugal don't get me wrong but Spain has more to offer and more potencial then Portugal for sure. A combined WC would be a very good idea. Only I think that there should be only three stadiums in Portugal and you can fill in which ones.

organize a world cup together its a revolutionary ideia and I support one think like that in the Peninsula but unfortunly Spain and Portugal dont have the same open mentality as Denmark, Norway or Sweden to organize something together us you can see in this coments

Spain alone can celebrate a World Cup without problems, like in 1982!!

And here, we have too much interesting and prepared cities to celebrate it: Madrid, Sevilla, Barcelona, Valencia, Alicante, Bilbao, Palma de Mallorca, Salamanca... for to go with Portugal too!!

I personally think that Portugal did a great job in the Euro 2004 and I was very happy for the excellent organisation and image that your country gave to the rest of the world. Although I think, it would be an excellent idea to organise some kind of Iberian event on which we could even include Andorra (yes, why not!) I still think that Spain alone could easily organise a world cup as well as Portugal being your country big enough for that.

Don’t be blind, Portugal and Spain have much more things in common than what differentiates them…

I said "Iberian event" that doesn't necessarily mean a world cup...

I cannot see FIFA giving the Cup to two countries of that size. Why would they need to bid together? England is most probably the most likely country in Europe to get it next time anyway.

If there is a UEFA rotation policy, then you will know full well that it will be England's turn next time the tournament returns to europe.

My poor comments remind me that Spain and Portugal can do it alone. So why should I have a World Cup in my country with the most important match being held in another one? Worst, around the World they would say "The World Cup in Spain"... and, to be honest, I dislike that; it happened in Euro 2000 with Belgium.
I don't know why doing a World Cup is that different from doing an Euro. Stadiums could be redeveloped to have 40.000 and we could even make 2 new ones in Madeira and Azores. But hey, if South Africa will have 10 and we already have 10... I can't see the big difference...

I really have nothing against Spain, I just mencioned what happened in 1999 to show how we can make it by ourselves without Spain. Gosh, why would Spain need us if they have a lot of venues? Why would we need them if we have them too?

The only problem would be our bid to win. Why? FIFA is a lot more "political" than UEFA, and other countries would have more power to win if Portugal won't get strong allies. Probably if Madrid goes for the Olympics and we support them...

Hmmm, interesting discussion, an Iberian World Cup would face serious (SERIOUS) difficulties, political disputes, country disputes, fan disputes, FIFA disputes etc etc etc....I think most Portugese and most Spainish would argue that they could host a WC all on their own without the need of a co-host, and I bet neitehr would back down or co-operate in this kind of situation so.....not likely.

Besides, this thread is pointless, 2018 is going to England!

I actually do not think that Spain at the moment could hold a world cup finals. There are simply not enough quality stadia. That could change, but apart from maybe 4, they have a seriously long way to go.

But that's not a problem. Portugal had... 0 before 1999.
