With England being knocked out in the first round itself, Russia went on to win the bid to host the 2018 World Cup. Qatar will host the 2022 World Cup shocking US bid.!! England fans were left dejected after this while Beckham has said they did all they could... Any take on this??

I cannot say that I am enthusiastic for Russia, but I think that Eastern Europe deserved to organize a World Cup. The problem with Russia is that it is too big, the distances are huge, and that will tire the players out. But I am sure that they will make huge investments and the stadiums, the roads and the hotels are going to be extraordinary. As for Qatar, I don't know too much about that country, but according to their plans, they will build fabulous stadiums, where the warm weather will have no influence on the players, because they will build special temperature regulators, which will keep the air at pleasant values. The money is no problem for either of the countries, so I think that they will be great organizers.

I think it is fine for Russia and Qatar to hold the World Cup. Russia has never held the World Cup. It is the biggesst country in the world and its soccer is not very weak. As to Qatar, it is the first time for a Middle East country to hold the World Cup. It is good for the soccer to develop in more countries. I agree with it. I love China
