Races wide open for World Cup bids as vote looms

The final bid presentations to stage the 2022 World Cup left the race wide open heading into Thursday's vote. The no-show of Russian prime minister Vladimir Putin might have done the same for the 2018 event.

There is the funniest clip of Morgan Freeman losing his place during his speech... He graciously said he missed a page, but it was hilarious!!

England miss out to Russia in 2018 World Cup vote

England missed out on the right to host the 2018 World Cup after football's governing body Fifa picked Russia to stage the event for the first time.

Russia saw off rival bids from England, Spain-Portugal and Netherlands-Belgium to win a secret ballot of Fifa's 22 executive members in Zurich.

England hoped Prince William, David Cameron and David Beckham would give them an advantage but the bid failed.

Meanwhile, Qatar was chosen to host the 2022 World Cup.

I guess I have to plan for Brazil, as those other two venues don't seem enticing to me.....
