A solid second to England's superb presentation so far. Nice videos, well thought-out speeches, some very nice CGI, but not as slick as England's and the narrative not quite as strong (which is surprising).

I think Russia might have done enough to pull this off.

From BBC Brazil's Jair Rattner in Lisbon: "A Portuguese commentator on Channel TV1 is claiming the English presentation is inferior to the Iberian one: "To say the best players are in England should be called blasphemy"


The best and mediatic players are in Spanish Liga Xavi, Messi, C Ronaldo, Casillas, Iniesta, Forlan, Beckham ...and was in Liga Zidane, Maradona, Di Stefano, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, J Cruyff, ...

I think the slickness has to do with the language barrier. If everyone could have talked in his own language they would be good aswell.

England 10/10 - better than I thought it would be, much better.

Russia 9/10 - solid, very well done indeed, but never quite reached the levels England's did.

Spain/Portugal 7/10 - One very good video, and a rambling sychophantic speech.

Holland/Belgium - didn't see it.

Noone cares about your marks, RobH. The members of the commitee know better.

Excellent presentation by Russia.................

...........until the Deputy Prime Minister started to speak. He was awful.

Otherwise, very impressive. A powerful message, well delivered. And a good idea that they made the effort to speak in English. Being able to understand the speaker as he / she speaks has greater impact, I think, then when listening, second hand, to a translator.

Must be such a difficult decision for FIFA this, all the European bids are strong.

******* NERVOUS GOING TO HAVE TO LOOK UP THE RESULT WHEN I WAKE UP! I am fairly certain Australia won't win. I just don't want it to go to a country that has already hosted it before or Qatar which only leaves...Australia. Why doesn't FIFA give a new country a go? Everything would be much better and interesting if countries that have already hosted (e.g for 50 years) couldn't bid when there is a nation that has never hosted bidding

I tell you something. I wish FIFA would read this thread. The general Russian public need a reality check. They need to staple their nose to their forehead. All angst on these forums are from them.

I almost forget it, in 2022: Australia; in 2026: USA. That would be great! (ironic mode off)
Was that supposed to be funny or clever? You do appreciate that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit?

More to the point, what provoked such a post?

Had it escaped your notice that the majority English posters on this board have been complimentary of the other bids? The only European bid which, IMO, does not deserve to win is Iberia. And that's not because there's anything wrong with the technical aspects of the bid. In many respects, it's an outstanding bid.

However, as previously stated, the two main weaknesses are that:

1. Spain already hosted a World Cup relatively recently. It's not Spain's turn.

2. If there must be joint bidders, they should both be countries that could not otherwise host the World Cup alone. And the bid should be on the basis of an equal partnership. Clearly, in the Iberian bid, Portugal is a very junior partner which will only provide two cities and three stadiums.

Decision day for 2018, obviously I would love to see it in my country but I'd also be very interested in a Russian world cup, they would be my next favourite.

Thank you Tim, it was my opinion on the presentations and the presentations alone; I didn't claim it was anything other than that. Perhaps kidrobot would actually like to contribute to the thread?
