The Portuguese Government was very clear since the beginning: not even a cent spent on stadiums.

So what's the problem now? Especially from an ******* who said "FIFA are not interested in a cold World Cup". Now that's a good way of getting sympathy. Won't those guys ever learn why their Euro 2004 bid lost?

Agreed, so Russia won't be as warm as Iberia, who cares. Say 16 to 20 degrees in a Russian Summer, thats awesome for Soccer. Does that guy realise that this years WC is being played in the host Country's winter?

It gets a lot hotter than that in Russia. the average high in Moscow is around 23 degrees with it getting as high as the mid 30s. It gets cold in winter but very hot in summer.

They have stadiums in even hotter areas, Sochi is subtropical in the summer nudging 40, 27 on average, Samara hits those sort of temperatures too, as do a few other cities.

These temperatures are higher than London (probably the warmest city in England's bid) which doesn't ever get that hot or that cold.

Apart from Canada, that's not a bad list - though I'd swap 2018 and 2022 around.

For me football is business, and for those who do not know the crown of France (1999) Brazil lost the final in order to get this job so (dreamed) to host the cup in 2006, as then, the Brazil tava from bad to worse economically , men bad, FIFA and Ricardo Teixeira (president CBF) dreams also one day be president of FIFA (one of the greatest directors corrupt I've heard.)
ordered to the directors of the FIFA 2014 World Cup would be required in countries of South America (thus opening up an arrow to Brazil) I believe that in 2010 Brazil Cup lift her legs to get the title at home in 2014.

What I mean by that? men who run world football just want money and this race for the 2018 crown, who will be able to put more money in the bank this corrupt world.

I think it matters. If FIFA didn't value diversity we wouldn't have the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

South Africa is more about having it on all the continents.
But to judge a country because is happened to share the same culture as another seems far fetched.

Also, calling the U.S. an "Anglo-Saxon" nation is just hilarious. Yeah at one point, about 300 years ago.

It's about culture not an ethnicity. England is hardly ethnically homogenous.

The whole Anglo-Saxon thing is overblown by the media and government. The US and UK are very different from each other, although if you only spent 2 weeks in London or Florida you wouldn't really notice that much. IMO, the countries culturally and socially closest to Britain are Ireland, Australia, NZ and France, probably in that rough order (don't laugh at the last one). Canada and Germany at a push.

I think it was Churchill (could be wrong) who said no two nations which speak the same language are as different as Britain and America.
