Aside from the prestige and benefit of hosting a WC in their own country, a USA WC is pretty much like playing at home for Mexico. There are millions of Mexicans in the USA and even more will make the short trip to see their team play.

FIFA says Indonesia out of 2022 World Cup race

Indonesia was dropped from the race to host the 2022 World Cup on Friday after failing to provide government guarantees to FIFA.

"We have informed Indonesia that because they have failed to provide a number of documents and guarantees .... Indonesia is not any more a candidate for 2022," FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke said.

Indonesia was always considered the outsider among the 11 original candidates that applied to host the tournament in 2018 or 2022.

"We hope there's something in it for Hong Kong," said Leung.

If Beijing is successful in its bid for the 2026 World Cup, Leung said it is highly likely that Hong Kong will become one of the hosting cities where some of the final matches can take place. The Hong Kong Football Association is currently planning a youth championship between Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, and mainland China

----------------------------------

The suggestion in this article that China is looking to bid for the 2026 tournament could really affect the 2022 race. If their intention to bid becomes clear before December, there might be a few worried Australians and a few happy Americans.

China announcing a 2026 bid would really put the cat amongst the pigeons for 2022. And if China is serious about getting a world cup, they'd be stupid to keep quiet about their intentions and let Australia nab 2022.

Watch this space I suppose.
Interesting. And there has been earlier reports that China plans bidding for the 2026 tournament.

It was not surprised Indonesia could not go until the end of the process.
It remains two months before the submitting of the candidats' bids. Spain/Portugal could be considered as a deception because Spain should have gone alone, Portugal didn't accept to build another stadiums or add more places to its stadiums and the website is "under construction".

What are the odds of a back to back 2018/2022 European WC's? I'm starting to lean more towards the idea of a Russian or Dutch/Belgian 2020 behind a 2018 UK bid would be a good choice.

Seeing Australia's dismal track record on racism, things will be against Australia leave alone for sporitng reasons.
We're one of the most multicultural nations in the world. It's only the handful of idiots out there that are racist. We're civilized (Melbourne that is), perhaps more so than other Australian cities, let alone other cities around the world which are part of other nations' bids.

Australia is a safe place to be in, and as with every major sporting event, there will be the necessary security.

Don't believe everything that your told, we'll be a great place to host.

How can you possibly think Qatar would make a good choice for the World Cup?

Zero, unless FIFA does a complete and massive u-turn, which will upset everyone outside of Europe which in turn will seriously undermine Sepp Blatter's presidency (many of those keeping him in power are from the non-powerhouse federations).

The bids which are on the same continent as the elected 2018 host, will not be forwarded into the 2022 election. That's the rules of this election, and as I said, only if Sepp Blatter wants to commit career suicide will he change them in the way you're suggesting at this very late stage.

N.B. It's an England bid, not a UK bid. And there's no world cup in 2020, though I guess that was a typu.

I didn't know that soccer is that big in Australia. Anyway, if it was up to me I would choose Australia over Qatar.
That does not mean Qatar doesn't deserve to host the World Cup. For one, it could afford to make the World Cup really spectacular. Not to mention that the WC is a GLOBAL tournament and shouldn't be held only by major countries.

Yes indeed, but not for a country with the population of just over 1 million, whose largest stadium is currently only 50,000.

What with weather concerns and having like 5 stadiums alone in Doha... it's highly unlikely, stick to the Olympics, they have a better chance of getting that.

QATAR 2018

Qatar could have tried as a joint bid with UAE, Bahrain.
Dubai - 1
Abu Dhabi - 2
Sharjah - 1
Al Ain - 1
Doha - 2
Rest of Qatar - 2
Manama - 1
Any way the Gulf Countries are already exploring the GCC Passport and Visa which could rather lead to greater support for the joint bid.
Missed opportunity.
Still Qatar's effort is laudable, atleast they have a massive expat population still without stories of violent racial discrimination.
Primarily their Law & order is stronger and swifter.

The Qatar bid is absurd IMO. What major cities are there other than Doha?
