FIFA is only intrested in DOLLARS !!!! So result : 2022 Qatar !
The bid for 2018 would always going between Russia and England. England was my favourite, but Russia can make it work !

There's been enough wrong with this vote for FIFA to find itself in a very uncomfortable position whoever won.

Qatar??!?! Sorry but thats just rediculous... If the world cup is to come to the middle east it should be in a real country. A UAE - Bahrain - Qatar joint bid would have been good. Qatar is a small CITY (DOHA) and nothing else. Lets have the next world cup in Singapore then...

Russia is a best choice in 2018!

It was supposed to be there. The only country in Europe remained, and can host WC alone - Russia!

As for Qatar, really a shocking decision. Australia was my choice. But still, CONGRATULATIONS!

I thought Sepp looked nevy before the results and I'd guess this is the reason for it, he knew Qatar had a good shot at winning 2022 and knew what that would mean in terms of FIFA's credibility.

I have to say congratulations to Russia even though I am very disappointed that England lost, Russia had a very good and worthy bid. (even if it does mean building white elephants)

The Qatar decision makes me physically angry at the corruption and incompetence within FIFA. Only a organisation blinded by oil money could think that the world cup could be hosted well by a tiny country of less than 2m with one city and summer temperatures over 50c. The campaign for the reformation or replacement of FIFA starts here.

I want to see how I can get from Moscow to Kazan if I want to see 2 games in 2-3 days, I will have to stay 24 hours on a train? FIFA is a big joke.
If you want to see a WC final in 2018, buy a pair of binoculars or even a telescope to see anything on the pitch.

Russia is ok, although they played the same game London played for the Olympics (only beautiful renders... let's see if they also build a different cheap accomodation). But they like football there, have a good tradition and it was about time to do it.

But Qatar...
