You cannot include Wimbledon, Snooker, etc. They are yearly tournaments, and nobody else really plays snooker.

We have not hosted the World Cup since 1966, I think we deserve to do it one last time, and we almost have the stadia to do it without spending too much money.

What am I talking about with the "we", I don't even live there anymore!

Either Spain or Portugal could easily host it. But IMO, it's one or the other, bids are for one country. I think there's more gloss on it if it's World Cup Germany, World Cup Spain, World Cup Portugal.

The cricket world cup in 2011 is India/Pakistan/Bangladesh/Sri Lanka. How hard to say all of that.

Why would it be Englands turn? the best man/country wins, it is simple like that. It is not like England has a 'right' to hold WC. If by that time they have the best stadiums, so be it, if not? better luck next time. You should have learned this by now!

I just can't understand what the size of a country have to do with the capacity of hosting a World Cup. What really matters, the country size or the number of beds and quality of venues? If the World Cup was co-hosted by the Netherlands and Belgium would you ask if they were able to do it? Because the last time I saw, Portugal was bigger than both together.

no basically im asking because i have a friend who has lived in lisboa and portugal..and whenever i mentioned a fifa world cup or a possible olympic bid by lisbon he just argued that it was too small..i understand this is the view of one person...however ive never been to portugal although i do intend on visiting it next year...i do still think the size of a country and its capacity to run such large events is an important factor..however if u believe portugal has the accommodation, capacity etc. then i suppose it does...

I think if Portugal is underestimated is more likely to be because of its low economy power than for its size… As you can see on this link http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/por...C/ecobac/eb011 Portugal has unfortunately already been surpassed by some Eastern European countries…

ENGLAND should host the world cup in 2018, its been too long besides Spain had 82' and Portugal had 2004. Plus England is the most ready and is still updating stadiums.

Vote England 2018!!
