If Qatar can host the World Cup anybody can.

I am Portuguese by birth and a US citizen and it sure is a slap in the face to see the Cup being hosted in a country that does not have any interest in football.

Thumbs down

I have to add that I am sad that I probably won't be able to see a World Cup in the USA in my lifetime.

Manuel

There was a rumour circulating in Europe that FIFA are so concerned at the state of unreadiness of Brazil along with security concerns, they may have to relocate the 2014 World Cup - you never know.

If they let Qatar host the Cup, they would not pull it out of Brazil.

There were concerns in South Africa - if I remember right there were concerns that Greece wouldn't pull off the '04 Olympics.

Hosting the Cup in Qatar will bring on a lot of problems.

Blatter is happy because he no doubt took a bribe, but he he taking a big step back for the world's greatest sport.

Thanks for the info.

Those FIFA officials are bad enough to make politicians seem honest.
