Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022
Today #FIFA announced the host countries for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP touranments.
Many people asked questions about awarding the next two World Cups at the same time. Some say it’s to line the “outgoing regimes” pockets. Whatever the real reason is, the countries that won were not the obvious favourites… Which just makes the process seem even more dodgy following the recent allegations about vote-rigging around some of the FIFA member associations.
I really enjoy the platform, gives the man on the street a place to vent. This is what Twitter had to say about #FIFA… Loved these three.
