Well done, Russia. I'm sure you'll host a brilliant World Cup.

As for Qatar...

The amount of money passed from Qatarian (?) hands to FIFA's must be unreal. An absolute joke a decision. The 'big' nations need to group together and sort something out, FIFA is corrupt to it's core.

It is. Qatar has more free money to make best games than anyone else. Even Russia won't offer what Qatar is able to do.

Couldn't agree more.

How can the approve Englands bid better then all, give it 100% in 5 over riding factors and then also profitablity and then say their presentation was the best to knock it out in the first ******* ROUND.

this is a piss take.

FIFA needs a complete clean up, we already knew this. Russia is an understandable decision, I'm bemused by Qatar, but I suppose best of luck to them.

Guess the silver lining here for the US is that if for some reason Qatar isn't able to do it then the US can easily host last minute since all of our stadiums are built.

I have zero problems with Russia hosting. But Qatar is roughly the size of the city of Los Angeles. And while I am FOR countries that have never hosted an event on this scale, Qatar is a huge risk. The heat being the main problem. I know a lot can happen from now and 2022 but Qatar is a mammoth risk.

Too right mate - the FA should be making some phone calls right now. First calls to the US and Aus I'd say.

Bullshit! England had the best bid, i didn't even want them due to cuts in the country but they had the best bid. I'm not so angry for Russia congrats on your win i'm sure you'll do well. However Qatar is a disgrace of the highest order at least Russia actually has good teams and players and stadia but Qatar it has less then 2m people and who wants to walk around 45c? Awful..

Meh, we've been doing that in this part of the world for every major event. You'll all survive. The 2006 tournament was in the middle of my university exams and 2010 I had a 9-5 job.

Anyway, good on Russia but Qatar is just a big WTF for me. USA I would have been happy with (good excuse to do some travel then) and Australia of course but this decision for 2022 is just terrible.

I'm not even saying this as an arrogant American, but I can totally see Qatar having to back out at some point if all of their stuff doesn't get built quickly and solidly. It could still default to here.

So now World cups are giving to medium sized cities as Doha?

Great, i want next world cup to be giving to N.Y. oh wait, maybe it´s too large, better to Kobe, Kaohsiung, Barquisimeto, Guigang, Vadodara, Tijuana or to Belem. All with a larger population than the whole Qatar.
