So, all that money England 2018 promised to go to football development worldwide can now be spent on Burton I guess.

BBC Sport understands England were eliminated in the first round of voting, with Russia earning an absolute majority (12 votes) in round two.

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.
This is incredible!! how to waste your money for one month with nonsense..... QATAR WC 2022.

FIFA must be coherent with his acts, a few months ago they thinked in africa and the development they need to be more equal, 12 year later they will allow this crap!!

Did Qatar have a decent football league, how many professional teams host DOHA?

Well, one other thing has definitely been clarified by the votes:

Contrary to FIFA recommendations, there is absolutely no need for a bidding nation to ensure a wide and even geographical spread of stadiums.

The vast majority of stadiums in Qatar will be in one city. And all but one of Russia's host cities are in the west of the country. Even the one in the east, Yekaterinburg, is at the very western edge of the east!

So, if England ever decides to bid again (and that is highly doubtful, given that they didn't even get past the first round), we could use five or six stadiums in London and another four in the Manchester / Liverpool area!

If I were Russian I'd be worried about whether FIFA will still exist in its current form by 2018.

Besides the obviously negative attension that Qatar winning 2022 will generate awarding two WC's looks like it may have backfired massively to me. Pretty much everyone seems to be pissed off with these results, perhaps most importantly though the most important footballing nations will be. I will not be at all supprized if both winning bids were backed by members from devolping footballing nations.

To me thats a potentially very dangerous situation for FIFA, what they fear most is IMHO not negative publicity since afterall there not accountable to anyone(plus unlike the Oylimpics Football's popularity is so great it can withstand almost any level of corruption being exposed) but rather a spilt in power, espeically the western european nations turning agenst them.

Congraculations to Russia and Qatar

When Blatter opened the envelope and said : "And the winner is..."
It should be: "And who paid more is..."

Well FIFA is doing the same with the WC that the FIA is doing with F1.
Making it more international and boring.

What more is there to do then withdraw all funding and breakaway from FIFA with Australasia and Asian Countries. Most of Africa will then follow then we will see where these mugs are.

Qatar haven't even played in a world cup. Why should there people ever get to see a world cup ahead of 60 million Football loving English fans.

ITS A ******* DISGRACE.
QFT

Money money money

LMAO here.

I was hoping England would have got it. Best venue's, best admosphere, home of the game and the final at the most sacred ground in all history of football.
But no, it stead of going for that they go for money and mafia, and oil dollars and slavery. Slavery in Qatar because all the stadiums will be build by brought in Pakistanies, Indians and Indonesians who work for a 50 dollar wage a month. Enhance the buildingsites of Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Bahrein. Seriously, what does a WC in a country with 2 million inhabitants do? What in the name of blatter will they do after the WC with all these stadiums?

That's actually a very good question! What happens if a country ceases to exist after being awarded the World Cup?
