The World Cup

As you may or may not know, yesterday England dispatched the Prime Minister, David Beckham and an unemployed man from London called Billy to beg Fifa -an organization that isn't even slightly corrupt- to let them have the World Cup. It didn't go well.
Russia will be holding the 2018 World Cup, much to the chagrin of said trio.
Even by their own low standards, this was a poor show for an England team, who have pulled off the impressive feat of crashing out of a World Cup eight years before it even starts.
The British press haven't taken it particularly well, most of the headlines being along the lines of "WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH WAAAAAAAAAAAH"

In somewhat associated news, Australia weren't awarded the following World Cup either, as Fifa decided to give it to a collection of sand dunes in the Middle East. Which was nice.

"yeah, it's this size"

I remember playing Football Manager a couple of years back and Qatar was the country with the lowest international ranking.
Not even somewhere like Dubai could pull off building appropriate world cup stadiums in 8 years, let alone a country that has, as far as I'm aware, nothing (apart from said sand dunes).

I think they got it because Fifa aren't corrupt.

I think they got it because Sepp Blatter knows what he's doing.

Yeah, it's definitely one of those two

It's strange how I sometimes get my news from your blog, Fizzee. :-P

Some even petitioned for the World Cup to be held in humidity and mosquito-infested Miami. Ha. Ha ha ha.

Mrs M, I don't think we're quite up to it somehow.

Fb, The USA was up for the same one as Australia, you lost to Qatar as well.
