I see problems already with the word Iberian" The Portuguese are Lusitanians and not Iberians;Portugal is part of Iberia penisula but is called Lusitania. Hosting the World Cup together is not a good idea politically for Portugal and Spain. The Spanish would be orrogant about having the last games in Spain.The Portuguese stadiums are state-of-the art in comparison with Spanish stadiums. I believe that Portugal would do fine hosting the Cup by themselves.

Lusitania is not alone Portugal. Also regions of Spain formed Lusitania, and for a worldcup you need 12 stadiums over 40.000 spectators

Wrong, South Africa will have 10.

And that's the most easy part.

Sorry, man. Lusitanians are Portuguese from Portugal. Iberians are Spaniards from Spain. Again, Portugal could host the World Cup by itself. That litle country can accomplish a lot for itself. I believe they have the best designed stadiums in Europe. And they have more room to build for the World Cup.

You are right.
did you know that spain and portugal didn't exist in iberian and lusitanian era?¿?¿

BTW not all portugal were lusitanian and not all spain were iberian. some regions of spain were lusitaniasn too and the north of portugal were celt, the same as the north, north-west of Spain. the north and the middle of Spain were celtiberian and the south was iberian.

furthermore, lusitanians were a celtiberian tribe like the vettons, carpetanos and others. here's a map


BTW i don't if those portuguese stadia can be upgraded but i'm sure that both countries can host the world cup and do a great work

Lowering the field level building new seats. That will be easy in Coimbra, Leiria and Aveiro. In Algarve they could make the tops higher. In Braga they could... I don't know, put the stands higher also. And we could also build new stadiums.

[QUOTE=willo]did you know that spain and portugal didn't exist in iberian and lusitanian era?¿?¿
Historically, Tras os Montes and the douro region in nothern Portugal are where the Lusitanians come from. It is true that the Lusitanians are a mixture of former Iberian and Celtic tribes. the Lusitanians started traveling throughout northern Portugal all the way to Galicia. But the Romans named that part of Portugal Lusitania; it contained the fiercest tribes they ever encountered. Scientist discovered the Portuguese blood type is totally different from the rest of Iberia; that the closest blood type to the Lusitanians is from Belgium and not from Spain. Again, Lusitanians are from Portugal. and Iberians are from Spain. Thank's for your information.... Portugal would do fine hosting the Cup by themselves.
