Obviously, one of England's votes was our very own Geoff Thompson. Guesses as to the other?

My money's on the USA delegate.

Guys, take it easy. The size of a country shouldn't matter much if they have the ability to organize a top notch event. In any event.

Lets leave FIFA, sorry Russia but we know why your bid won, it might have been less obviouse if Qatar didn't win 2022.

I hope our press are all over this, aswell as press form other bidding nations. This has got to bring FIFA crumbling to the ground, it's about time we left them. They will come to us as soon as they want us to play Brazil, Argentina, or even some small nation in the middle of nowhere (Qatar?).

The arguement that FIFA want to bring football to new countries does not hold up when better option were there that would have ticked that box.

South-central Russia isn't really warmer than Qatar in July. Last summer in Russia was under Saharan anticyclone. And due to climatic specifics this could happen every summer.

Still everyone would be happy if WC 2018 will be held in late april-early may and WC 2022 will be held in march.

Soccer World Cup: Russia in 2018, Qatar in 2022

Today is a big day for soccer fans around the world. The upcoming locations for the FIFA World Cup are being deliberated, and we have gotten word that Russia will host the events in 2018. In 2022, Qatar will host the games, beating out the United States' bid.

This past summer, the World Cup was hosted in South Africa. In 2014, the World Cup will be in Brazil. The last time the World Cup was in the USA was in 1994 and according to FIFA's website, the US has never won the World Cup.

Like the Summer & Winter Olympics, the World Cup only occurs once every four years. It's a fairly big event that involves many countries in the world. People who don't generally watch soccer will tune in to the World Cup just to support their country and watch some really good competition.

Soccer isn't very popular here in the States, but it is popular in Europe and South America. Brazil, Uruguay, Italy, and Germany have all won the World Cup. In 2010, Spain was victorious in the competition.

Scandal prompts questions
Last month, two of the 24 members of the voting executive were suspended following accusations of bribery by the British Sunday Times newspaper. Further allegations of corruption were released by the British Panorama television programme days before the vote.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin boycotted the presentation ceremonies in protest at the “unscrupulous” campaign that had been aimed at Fifa officials in recent weeks. But he is reportedly due to arrive in Zurich later on Thursday to congratulate his winning bid team.

Fifa has dismissed many of the media allegations, but the scandal has prompted Switzerland to review the way it monitors sporting bodies headquartered in the country.

Sports Minister Ueli Maurer is looking at ways of restructuring regulations and laws to stamp out corruption in sport. At present, non-profit sporting bodies based in Switzerland are not answerable to anti-corruption laws that govern commercial firms.

Some 50 international sporting associations are headquartered on Swiss soil. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) was the first to arrive and has been based in Lausanne since 1915.

As long as Doha is in the middle of nowhere for you, it's same Newcastle is in the middle of nowhere for Asians or Eastern Europeans. Honestly i'm not sure myself what part of Britain Newcastle is.

It depends. Imagine a World Cup in Singapore. It's possible.
