FIFA said that, UEFA didn't. If UEFA narrowed it down to one country only, it would either be an economical disaster (Portugal) or limited to Germany, UK, France, Spain and Italy, especially with 24 instead of 16 teams.

"Buddy", I think you are wrong. Brazil was about to be chosen in the first place, but Blatter warned them that they had a lot of work to do. Chile and Argentina were readying for a joint bid but this was rather quickly turned down by the FIFA. Which, I think, is sad.

Hahaha. But that was just a forumer joking.

Spain doesn't need to bid with Portugal to get a WC.

I don't think FIFA would want a) a joint bid, and b) a European nation to hold a WC when they have not even been tested with a Euro Cup! Look at Portugal, they held a successful Euro 2004, and they now have lots of quality stadiums and will be in a good position to bid for a WC by about 2026/2030.

I think the joint-bid is a good cause to strive for and in the process promoting bilateral relations for mutual benefit. It's a good vehicle for co-operation. But, I think there is still a way to go before this can realictically happen, for many reasons.

Another thread of a joint Greece-Italy bid has been started. This could be more feasible.

Lets face it, its pretty much certain that England will host the 2018 World Cup. Sepp Blatter even said so himself he would love it if England got the chance, and considering the amount of world-class stadia being built in the England right now, I would not be surprised if we do get to host the WC. Its convenient that the decision will probably be made in 2012, the year London hosts the Olympics, so that'll give FIFA an idea on how the British run major events and how they can handle it.

Come one people be serious. Italy for one would never have a joint bid with Greece. Two Italy held the World Cup in 1990. and Three - England is more or less guranteed to host the 2018 World Cup.

If 2018 goes to Europe, than it will be in England
But if it goes to Asia/Australia
than i think Australia can get it

aCidMinD81
are there any rumours in Spain about hosting WC or EURO?

Why would they reduce the number of teams from 32 to 24?

One word: Faro. Small countries don't need as many countries as the UEFA requires to host. Austria or Switzerland could never afford eight stadiums as big as 30,000. (Well, they could, but no one would want to.) Portugal obviously thought they could need these stadiums. Well...
