From the Daily Mail, so take with a pinch of salt, but here you go:

The astonishing budget of Ģ2.9m means Qatar's World Cup productions will include 3D and CGI and compares with the low six-figure sum England 2018 will spend on their film for the meeting in Zurich.

Carbon Neutral was not a phrase I was expecting to hear from a Qatar bid.

I thought it was interesting the broadcast times for games shown. China 11.30pm at night That's not prime time at all. So much for FIFA's development plans for China, if that goes ahead.

Well, it wasn't as astounding as the Daily Mail suggested it would be, but it was still pretty good ESPECIALLY when you consider this country has no real footballing history, has never qualified for a world cup, has very poor domestic attendences for its games etc etc. They really pushed their strengths well and whilst in parts it was bland (because they don't have the history) it made you forget for a while the ridiculousness of their ultra-compact plan and almost embrace their ideas.

Then we had that woman at the end almost demanding Qatar got it and the air was let out of the whole thing.

So I think 8/10.

Better than Australia's but not special enough to overcome the problems for Qatar. I have a feeling they really needed to WOW the audience to get ahead. I can see the US topping both of these to be fair.

I don't believe in giving marks for bids actually. I mean what does an out of 10 score achieve? and it's so subjective. It doesn't prove anything. You have to analyse the substance of the presentations. What they actually said is the most important part. FAIL for getting another country to promote their football because Qatar has never made a world cup or achieved anything worthwhile Bunch of skyscrapers pop up in 2022, yeah that's great tourist venues right there and desert, and a squiggle to show the unproven techologies total FAIL.

The Qatar presentation was boring, with the same arguments that Brazil had for the 2016 Olympic Games, but in this case they arguing, "when" their region should host a World Cup... lol
