It takes away the point of the world cup. Your supposed to show off your country, you want tourist to experience the hosting country. Look at Japan and Korea they both want to host by themselves now beacuse they probaly felt the tourist didn't capture as much with a joint bid.

Even Qatar wants to host by themselves as they know a saudi joint bid would be pointless, as they would steal the light.

How the hell would Colombia/Ecuador bid be supported?? Australia and New Zealand both went quite well in the past World Cup, while neither Colombia nor Ecuador qualified. In fact Colombia haven't qualified since France 1998

I'm pretty sure if Australia and NZ played in CONMEBOL, they would have trouble qualifying for the WC as well. Just saying.

How the heck did this thread unlocked? Obviously from the 5-year old conversation between _X_ and (MOD!) Coth, nothing has changed.

Yes, but in Uruguay, Australia lost 0-1.
Australia never won a single match in South America.

Yet you want Qatar to win the rights to 2022? Have you ever seen them play?

Not that it really matters anymore but Australia dominated Uruguay at home in that match. Shouldn't have lost it. The right team ended up qualifying anyway.

I wouldn't watch Qatar.I would watch South American and African teams playing in Qatar's cool futuristic stadiums while drinking a beer and eating chicken wings.

Watch it again buddy. You weren't that good back then. I will give credit where it's due, Uruguay is a very good side now.

Because African sides are so awesome at the WC. And I doubt you will be drinking beer, more like non-alcoholic beer tasting drinks.

Why would I waste my money on someone as Insufficient as you. You are like a fetus that hasn't developed into a real person. I'd rather spend the almighty dollar on rent and a flat screen t.v.

yeah , no middle east nation was even able to qualify for the world cup, for all Qatar's money as I said previously, they are the biggest embarrassment to international football, just like some pretender on here, no names required of course . http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gi...1522604&v=info

I am totally biased and really think that all countries could have a good world cup however 2022 would be great to have in Australia. One of the great things about our bid is that most cities have stadiums within a close walk to all the action of the CBD of each respecitve city (except for Sydney) which is a major plus. Nothing better than having a few drinks at Fed square in Melbourne for example before walking to a Socceroos game at the MCG. Please bring the world cup to Oz we won't let the football world down!!!

The Sydney Football Stadium is close to the Sydney CBD.
