Every country has security issues when it comes to holding a major event, and England has one of the best records for holding major tournaments in the world and takes security more seriously then probably any other country in Europe (a little too far sometimes)...we got cctv cameras coming out of our....well, you get the idea.

By 2018, England won't have hosted the World Cup for 52 years!! All the other major European countries- France, Italy, Germany, Spain- have hosted the World Cup more recently then England, and England is already in the process of developing a whole new generation of high quality, high capacity stadiums with many more plans to come through in the near future....and this is even before a potential World Cup bid is to be made! Plus, the time zone is better suited then somehwere like Australia, where people round the world would be stuck watching games at 2am!

I think Greece and Turkey should concentrate on trying to hold a Euro Cup before tackling the big stuff...like trying to drive a car before you can even walk! I think both countries have the stadiums and the resources to pull off a very successful Euro bid, but I think a World Cup is just out of their league at the moment, especially when there are other countries that are far more deserving, and better prepared, to host one!

I agree but I dont know about deserving it....sure, Greece is an attention seeking spotlight ***** but on the other hand, Turkey would really like a WC. Together, the two nations would become even more politically close and it woud benefit both nations a lot.

i heard it on a greeksoccer tv program a few months ago. how the epo would like to host a major soccer event. they said they can host the euro on their own but to host a world cup they need another country to help them out. firstly they said italy but both countries r far away from each other then they said turkey and they said it could be a possibility.

Fifa themselves have said the rotation is very unlikely to carry on beyond 2014, it was really just an excuse to make sure Africa got 2010 since Blatter depends on African support to remain president.

Yes, if you just lower the pitch, and add more seats.

btw, the bid would never work.

yes, and London dealt with it better than any country could have, Americans have said it themselves England dealt better with 7/7 than the Americans dealt with 9/11. Obviously it was ona very different scale, but you get the picture. The day after the attack everyone was back to work, the British public isnt scared of terrorists, they are scum. England may be the biigest target for an attack, but we are VERY well prepared to deal with it.

ENGLAND 2018!
