Brazil opens as favorite to win 2022 World Cup


REUTERS THREE LIONS England fans would be cheering again if a 2030 bid was made

The soccer World Cup final has the highest television ratings in sport.

Ahead of the world cup, concerns were raised over security and racism following the Euro 2016 debacle where Russian fans charged English supporters when the two countries met in Marseille.

"We are happy to sit down with football bodies to discuss any proposals that they might have to bid for the World Cup in 2030", said the PM's spokesman. "We can play football well, we can organise events of global importance well". Qatar's World Cup has been mired in controversy, from the alleged bribery during the bidding process to the widespread reports of mass casualties among migrant workers who have been charged with building the stadiums for the event.

Paul Pogba had a hard relationship with Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho last season and his performances in Russian Federation and goal in the final have only increased his value: if Mourinho wants to say "au-revoir" to the midfielder, now is probably the moment to sell.

"If the Conservatives are still in government, then we'd like to work with them to make sure that a bid is successful".

The draw for the 2022 World Cup is expected to take place in April 2022.

"Where better to celebrate the centenary of the World Cup than in the nation where football was born".

This will avoid the extreme temperatures of Qatar's summer months. Fans entered Russian Federation without a visa, using a fan ID instead - a document mandatory to enter stadiums that proves its holder has been vetted and approved by the authorities. "So, why not? It would be fantastic".

"When I got my hands on a World Cup final ticket, I immediately forked out an arm and a leg for the air ticket to Moscow", Mr Katumba, who spent in excess of $2500 (Shs9.3m) for his Qatar Airways flight, said.
