World Cup FIFA Inspection Team Gives England Bid Thumbs Up

The chairman of FIFA's inspection team was enthusiastic about England's chance to host the World Cup in 2018 or ‘22. The FIFA executive committee will vote on Dec. 2 to decide which countries will host both the 2018 and ‘22 tournaments. Russia is bidding to host both and is expected to be England's chief rival. It is predicted that the bid will go to Europe, which also has joint bids from Belgium and the Netherlands, and Spain and Portugal. The only non-European contender for 2018 is the United States, which is also vying for ‘22 alongside Australia, Japan, South Korea and Qatar.

After a four-day visit to the country's stadiums and infrastructure. Harold Mayne-Nicholls said all of the inspectors' needs had been met following the six-man team's visit of London, Manchester, Newcastle and Sunderland this week.
