you see as much as we like to believe the vote is based purely on technical merit and stadia its not...if portugal was the "in" country at the time and lots of people were pushing for portugal to win then portugal could have beaten any country..with england there seems to be quite a push for this bid even if we are many years away...sometimes momentum and of course politics and geo politics plays a role...

as for spain they have never really been good at marketing their bids...but im not sure how they went about their euro bid...when it comes to england...they are "better" than the rest and more equipped..that combined with good support and momentum with the bid is tough to beat...

England has 2018 in the bag if they want to have it. Only Germany and Spain can rival the stadiums that are in England and they have both hosted the WC more recently. (Germany twice). Concacaf is in line for 2022 or 2026 and the most logical country in Concacaf would be Canada. It would be beneficial for FIFA to come to Canada for a WC. A match in Toronto, Vancouver or in Montreal would be great with the huge population of other minorities that already live in those cities. Plus those minorities are from all over the globe whether European, Asian or African, they are in Toronto.

The only problem is that if Canada really wants home field advantage, they would have to stay away from those cities, especially Toronto and Montreal. I remember the World basketball Championships in 94 when Canada played Greece and the stadium was full of Greeks. In Toronto that could happen with so many other minorities, people wouldn't believe that the Canadians were playing in their home country if they played in Toronto.

Canada needs to start qualifying for World Cups in the ridiculously easy North American zone.

With 3.5 slots it is not exactly difficult in comparison to most other zones.

2014 seems destined for Brazil, and 2018 for England, but not quite as certain as 2014 is. FIFA has already said that 2030 will belong to Uruguay to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Cup, but I doubt they could do it alone... I see a joint host with Argentina.

What countries do I think should get it?

China- (not the biggest sport there, but believe me, they'd get up for the greatest event in the world

Nigeria- Lost narrowly to South Africa

Australia- Need more stadiums, but I'd like to see it there at some point.

USA- Who wouldn't want the Copa Mundial to come to their home nation??

What does that have to do with hosting the competition? SA aren't exactly world beaters at the moment neither were Korea and Japan until they actually hosted the WC.

As much as i would love to see this, it is not feasible.

1. FIFA won't allow joint bids.
2. The population of these islands together is smaller than 1 million.
3. These people know very little about football. They got thumped by New Zealand 10-0 in the WC qualifyers.
4. They can't afford it.
5. Where are they to put the stadiums.

Don't worry. I can assure you Australia will take their place

South Africa is the official host for 2010. But isn't Brazil now the official host for 2014? And what about England for 2018? Is that official or did they just bid and not get it (yet)?
I would like to see:
2018 - England
2022 - Australia and New Zealand
2026 - Joint bid between T&T, Jamaica, and Costa Rica
2030 - South American country except for Brazil
2034 - China
2038 - African country, whichever one has a strong team
2042 - Joint bid between USA and Canada
2046 - Joint bid between Poland and Ukraine (if they don't get Euro 2012)
2050 - Argentina

and I could go on and on.........

- 2010: South Africa
- 2014: Brazil. Even if Brazilian stadia are not allready built, I can't imagine this country will not make everything possible to host the event. Brazil economy is becoming stronger and stronger every years. Of course, there are still problems with poverty and housing but i's not like in the 1980's.
- 2018: United Kingdom (and not England alone). I hope to have matchs played in Cardiff, Edimburg, Glasgow...WC should return to europe at this date.
- 2022: Australia. Now, it's an Asian country for Football.
- 2026: Canada
- 2030: Europe again. Maybe Spain and Portugal together
- 2034: China or India.

Australia should be able to handle a world cup on their own. its good to see many people feel the aussies should host after the next few world cups, would be really good for the developement of the game, now that australia is under asia, we have a good chance of snatching the asian cup in the near future.

in all seems very promising for australian football.

I can give you a number of reasons why. And none of them are that "England is better than Portugal". Both are great countries to visit.

The most important reason why England would most likely win a vote over Portugal is that Portugal's stadiums cannot compare. Yes, some of the new Portuguese stadiums are beautiful. But, barring three, they are all too small at 30,000. Even if seven others were increased by 10,000 to meet FIFA criteria, the majority of Portugese stadiums would still only fulfill minimum requirements. Even Da Luz, at 65,000, is on the small side for a stadium to host the World Cup final.

Compare and contrast to England.

Already there is:

Wembley - 90,000
Twickenham - 82,000
Old Trafford - 76,000 (possibly up to 90,000+ by 2018)
Emirates - 60,000
St. James' Park - 52,000 (possibly to be expanded further by 2018)
Stadium of Light, Sunderland - 48,000 (possibly to be expanded further)
City of Manchester Stadium - 48,000
Anfield - 45,000 (but Liverpool will probably have moved to new 61,000 stadium by 2018)
Villa Park - 43,000 (possibly to be expanded further)

There is also talk of Everton moving to a new 50K stadium and talk that London's Olympic stadium will, after all, be converted for use as a 60,000 seat football stadium after the Olympics. Birmingham have plans for a new 55,000 seat stadium. Elland Road, Leeds will also be a venue. Current capacity is 40,000 but some improvements will be required. In order to spread the venues around the country, some games will be played on the South coast. Southampton's new ground, St Mary's stadium, is only 32,000 at present but is designed for easy expansion. Likewise Derby's Pride Park (33,000) in the Midlands. There are a number of possible other venues, depending on what happens in the intervening years.

Portugal will simply never be able to match England for overall capacity.

One other factor in England's favour is the prevailing view within UEFA that it is England's turn and that it is long overdue that the country that gave Association Football to the world should once again play host to the world in 2018.

However nothing can be said for certain, What can be said is that an England bid will be very tough to beat.
Agreed.

I know that some within FIFA still have doubts about South Africa's ability to deliver on their promises. And Australia could possibly be one of the back ups.

But FIFA (and Blatter, in particular) will give SA until the last possible moment before making any final decision. They are determined (rightly so) that Africa should host a World Cup. Personally, I think SA will get it together in time. I hope so, anyway.
