You not only haven't got a chance of winning the World Cup, you are not even near England's level. We are the 5th best team in the history of World Cups you are the 44th best team. Our level is Argentina (4th) and Spain (6th) your level is Norway (43rd) and Senegal (45th). http://www.planetworldcup.com/NATIONS/maraton.html

Just in case you had all forgotten, this thread is about England's 2018 World Cup bid.

If you wish to discuss England - Australia sporting rivalry or the quality / prospects of individual nations' football teams, I'm sure that there are plenty of appropriate websites that can accommodate you!

I expected more from you, Australia are ranked 24th in the world actually and they were ranked as high as I think 14th, a few months ago. England haven't actually played Australia in a while, because the FA haven't forgotten this. Obviously Australia are not better than England in football but they certainly deserve respect.

Blatter was in London to meet the Prime Minister David Cameron and, while it is usual for him to offer warm platitudes about just every potential host nation, his acclaim for England sounded both genuine and personal. With England still generally considered favourites to host the 2018 Word Cup, it was also intriguing that Blatter should predict that his casting vote is unlikely to be needed when Fifa’s 24-man executive committee make their final decision in December.

“England has given so much to football and England is going to carry on giving much to football,” said Blatter. “You have given to the world security in the stadiums. This is a big legacy. Now we say where are the hooligans?” Blatter’s remarks followed the match in Genoa on Tuesday night between Italy and Serbia that had to be cancelled due to crowd violence. “If only all the national associations in the world, and their leagues (had stadiums like this),” he said.“If this had been the case we would not have had the problems we had in Genoa. Your bid has impressed me personally. As the motherland of football, shall the World Cup came back here in 2018? I wish you well and success.” Blatter’s repeated description of England as a “motherland” was somewhat ironic as one narrative that the 2018 bid has tried to avoid is the rather arrogant idea that football would somehow be coming home.

As well as a reception at Downing Street, Blatter was in the House of Commons to watch Prime Minister's Questions. Cameron made a particular point of stressing England’s success at tackling racism in football; an issue that remains more problematic for Russia and Spain, two of the bid’s main competitors.“We want it really badly,” said Cameron. “Football is our national game, it is the glue that binds the country together. We are the most diverse football nation in the world and we have travelled so far in kicking racism right out of football and that is one of the reasons why I believe we can make 2018 such a success. "England is ready, willing and able to deliver the best World Cup ever and provide the biggest legacy ever. Not for us, not for this country, but for the world.”

England withdraw bid for 2022 World Cup

England have withdrawn from the race to host the 2022 World Cup after the United States ended their bid to stage the 2018 tournament.

England will now focus entirely on their campaign for 2018, which will definitely be held in Europe.

This is because of Fifa rules that the competition cannot be held on the same continent on successive occasions.

England and Russia remain in the running for 2018 along with joint bids by Belgium/Holland and Spain/Portugal.

The United States had been the last non-European bidders remaining in the race for 2018 following Australia's withdrawal in June and remained in contention for both 2018 and 2022.

Chairman of the US committee, Sunil Gulati, said: "For some time we have been in conversations with Fifa and Uefa about the possibility of focusing only on the 2022 bidding process.
"We are confident this is in the best interests of the USA bid. We wanted to make the announcement now - still 48 days before the final decision - in order to make our intentions clear during the last part of our campaign.

"This also enables Fifa to finalise the selection procedures during its upcoming scheduled executive committee meeting."

That meeting will take place in Zurich on 28 and 29 October.

Fifa secretary general Jerome Valcke said: "We have had an open and constructive dialogue with the USA bid for some time now, after it became apparent that there was a growing movement to stage the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Europe.

"The announcement by the USA bid to focus solely on the 2022 Fifa World Cup is therefore a welcome gesture which is much appreciated by Fifa."


The prime minister encouraged Trinidad and Tobago to support England's bid

A number 10 statement

A statement from the England bid team read: "England 2018/22 today confirmed to Fifa that it was withdrawing its candidature from the Fifa World Cup 2022 and will now focus on its bid to host the tournament in 2018.

"This followed consultation with Uefa president Michel Platini on the most appropriate moment to withdraw.

"England 2018 is delighted it is now clear that the Fifa World Cup will be coming to Europe in 2018 following the withdrawal of the United States bid."

On Friday Prime Minister David Cameron met his Trinidad and Tobago counterpart Kamla Persad-Bissessar to canvas support.

Persad-Bissessar is a political ally of Fifa vice-president Jack Warner, who is a member of her cabinet as well as head of the North and Central American football federation Concacaf.

Concacaf has three votes on Fifa's executive committee meaning Warner is likely to have been an influential voice when the 2018 hosts are chosen on 2 December.

Mr Cameron's predecessor Gordon Brown met Warner for face-to-face talks during a visit to Trinidad last year.

After the meeting at Downing Street, a Number 10 spokesman said: "The prime minister congratulated Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar on her country's work as chair in office of the Commonwealth.

"They agreed to work closely to help the organisation realise its enormous potential, particularly in fostering international trade.

"The prime minister also updated Prime Minister Persad-Bissessar on England's bid to stage the 2018 World Cup and the lasting legacy the tournament could have worldwide, and encouraged Trinidad and Tobago to support England's bid."

Fifa president Sepp Blatter visited Mr Cameron on Wednesday at Downing Street, where he saw a presentation by ambassadors for the England bid.

It is an alternative video for Russia's 2018 World Cup bid. You can learn Russian better and learn each city separately.

That's why there's a thread for the Russian bid. It's not like we're not allowed to look at other threads. Facepalm.
