Hopefully, east Asia (Japan, China, Korea) might be interested in pulling away one day.

We always hear England's loud reaction to the World Cup bid, but not the reaction from other Euro nations. How are they taking the Russia and Qatar decision? Russia deserved it, but surely no one can say that Qatar deserve a World Cup??

Now they want to move the Qatar World Cup to winter (January)

What a farce FIFA has become. Not content with giving the world cup to a ridiculous nation, now they want to move it to a ridiculous time of year.

The 2011 AFC Asian Cup got underway last night in the world football superpower that is Qatar. The opening game featuring Qatar attracted an attendance of only 37,143 to the 50,000-capacity Khalifa Stadium. By the 80 minute mark, it was less than half empty with the home side down 2-0. That was the final scoreline with the home side losing to Uzbekistan. What a pathetic footballing nation - and they're hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup? I don't know much about their squad, but i'm guessing their only 'good' players are imports who've changed their nationality in return for big bucks!
just saying.

the 2nd one some Qatar defender passed it across the defence straight to the Uzbek striker who walked it in

Shocking team

No doubt they'll be full of Brazilians come 2022
