You know what, that gets 9/10 for me, losing a point for slickness only.

This is the only presentation which felt like it might have changed the prospects of a bidding nation. I don't think they'll get the world cup and will be a little dissapointed if they do given how recent their last one was, but kudos to them for going in a different direction with it and actually mentioning what everyone's thinking - "too soon" - and trying to prove why it isn't. It had a good humour about it like the Tokyo 2016 presentation, and I really like the idea of the 3D pitches.

It feels like they've put themselves in the race (albeit as a very long shot), whilst before they were completely out of it. Job done.

Had to go food shopping, so I missed their presentation. Nothing more interesting than that.

korea presentation focused on war between north & south koreas does not affect the bid and they will try to make peace.

before todays presentation i really didn't give the Japanese bid a second thought, but now i'm really intrigued by the whole Japanese bid. I'm guessing like most people that it was 'to soon' but they actually addressed this concern. so now I'm really routing for japan! before this i wanted Australia to get it

I agree with you. But such a place was given to our world by the nature or by God if you want. The government's challenge is to keep these places in great conditions.

I'm skeptical with respect to the Qatar football bid, but we also can not ignore the progress of the infrastructure in this country. It just speaks of the Qatari nation.

Do you think Russia will lose?

Distance between venues and too many stadia to build could be the problems for Russia, that is a so fascinating bidder.
