England’s World Cup Hopes

Their hopes to host the 2018 World Cup, that is.

They may face some opposition from Asian countries, whose perspective is voiced by Mohammed bin Hammam, president of the Asian Football Confederation:

“When it comes to England, the land of the birth of modern football everybody would love to see it played in England. England is a very good place to play the World Cup. Having said that, the World Cup belongs to all the 207 nations in the world and it is the right of everybody to play it. I believe strongly that this is the time for Asia, not for Europe.”

Indeed, England will receive stiff competition from two Asian nations: Australia and Indonesia. In England’s favor, though, are its first-rate football arenas and the fact that it hasn’t hosted the Cup since 1966.
