So the 2022 World Cup goes to a country the size of Oklahoma City with next to no football experience.

Congrats to Russia.

Not being a C*nt but the Qatar decision is f*cking idiotic.
Shows what a world we live in...

I wish there was a way we could petition it, I dont even care if Australia isnt in it, I just don't believe Qatar deserve to host it.

Im all for even USA to host, it would have at least been logical...

The fact is, there was pure corruption in the votes, yet FIFA did sweet f*ck all about it, and this is what happens.

A high risk bid from the inspectors who weren't bribed made sense, yet some how it still won, when it was the only bid that was rated high risk.

No offense to Qatar 333, he is the only Qatari that I respect...the rest are trolls.

I agree with the other people when they say everyone should disband from FIFA and create another organisation, one that isnt based on money, and is purely for the sport would be nice for once.

I refuse to live in a world that is so corrupted.
Yet there isn't much a middle classed person like me can do at this moment in time, that is until I finish university.

God Help this world...

A World Cup is for people to meet. I can remember WC '82 , '98 en '06. Those WC's I visited. It was nice seeing so many foreign people celebrating and having fun together. I’m afraid we won't see such scenes during the WC 18 and 22!

Well 'congratulations' to Russia and qatar..neither deserved to win or had the best bid but money talks.Russia will build some good stadiums but brown envelopes with a corrupt and odious organisation like FIFA got it over the line.

England invented the game, spread it around the world and has the most popular and watched and financially successful league in the world with a huge number of the worlds best players in magnificent stadia in a modern multicultural country with great infrastructure backed by a great bid presentation but alas it wasnt enough.

The only comforting thing from my perspective thing is that when an obscure middle eastern country of under 1 million people whose technical report lamented and highlighted the ridiculous barren inadequacies of its bid wins the world cup you know what a crock of corrupt slimeballs FIFA are
It will be brilliant having 12 grounds in one city and playing in 44 degree heat in a mono cultural country with no football interest or heritage..Brilliant work FIFA you *****.

I am gutted for England not to get it, but congratulations to Russia. However I was always under the impression that in a bid one city could have no more than 2 stadiums in order to host. So bearing that in mind how the hell did Qatar win, with its capital Doha bidding with 6 stadiums.

Just reported on the news that England only managed to get 3 votes in the 1st round which allowed Russia to win in the 2nd round.
