For what I understand, FIFA don't like the idea of two countries hosting the world cup anymore, they had a bad experience with japan, the only way they will consider to nations hosting the world cup will be Uruguay and Argentina or Chile.. or Colombia... etc.. when the rotation comes back to America, and this will be for the centenary of Uruguay as the 1st host of the world cup if I'm not mistaking, also the money factor.
I dont think Spain needs help from Portugal or biseversa.

Simple exaggaration and "cutting the context" tactic.

Instead of reading "summary", read the interview.

Another attack on Russia's Bid Chief, based on dirty tactic.

Bitch move is of those who are talking bulls**t without full knowing of situation.

This is another clear example how press is acting as an instrument of propaganda and part of creation of bad atmosphere around Russia-2018 bid.

These americans/british fools even don't dare to read the full interview and context of the phrases, but they want "sensation" and another shameless attack, based on nothing.

I know they're a rebuttle to certain press comments about Russia's bid, but he's not a journalist but a member of the Russia 2018 bid team, and is therefore sailing very close to the wind. Nobody in England's bid team has made public comments about Russia's bid, by contrast.

Risking FIFA sanctions by criticising a rival is a foolish move on his part; he's probably just stirring it, but, as I said, he's sailing close to the wind, especially if FIFA are in the mood to clamp down on anything untoward, which they may well be.
Nice try. Fail.

British journalists are really dumb. Or this is made by purpose. Or both.

How is that a fail? Commenting about another bid is far from wise especially while FIFA's ethics committee is considering the bid bribery situation.

You can only use "nice try. fail" when it actually applies.

"Nice Try. Fail" does not mean...e.g. I disagree.

RobH makes a valid point.

Instead you could have said. "I do not think its wise to comment on other bids, but I do not think it will impact the Russian bid".

Did you read the interview?

He did comment the British press, not British bid.

He even specially said in first answer (direct translation): "There are not talking about England as such, but rather about the features of the British press."

I know that nothing will come to FIFA ethics committee from this interview, because there are still people who have brains, can read the text and translate it without cutting. But there are a lot of people who are automatically falling for everything they read.

Yes, guys. I watched this match with my boyfriend and father. It was the best reportage, the benefis of Vasily Utkin! I have not heard so many jokes within 90 minutes in all my life. After 80th minutes we're all laughed without stop when we were listen this great report:

I don't read Russian. Maybe you could have tried explaining rather than saying "nice try, fail". I've seen you cry wolf enough about the British press so I'm not going to take you word that it's taken out of context this time, especially since your last account on this website was removed because of such posts.

And British press know that brits are very lazy to translate original, so they're writing whatever they want, in their interests.

And yet our press is also responsible for catching out two FIFA members accpeting bribes, which is what we should be talking about.

Incidentally, I'd still love to know within what context Sorokin talking about London's crime rate and underage drinking in England is appropriate. I can't think of any reason for him to have brought these things up.

Talk. No one stops you.

British press and you accused Russia's Bid Chief in what he didn't say. No appologises.

If it's normal for you, then something is wrong with you.
