Such a logical choice.
/sarcasm

NO WAY! That’s the worst possible choice FIFA could make!

The WC is totally ours! Australia’s! We’re the most deserving. I’ll explain.

First, Qatar has never qualified for the World Cup finals. Australia has qualified three times, and have been in the last two.

Second, and further reiterating the first point.. they’re aren’t even a footballing nation. Pull someone off the street and ask them if they can think of even one player from Qatar who is professionally playing. Then ask if they know any Aussies. A few come to mind.. Let’s see; Tim Cahill, Harry Kewell, Lucas Neill – all big AUSSIE names.

Third, infrastructure. Qatar doesn’t have any. They claim that once the WC is over, they’ll be donating the stadiums to lesser nations. All this tells me is that they don’t care about the development of football in their nation afterwards. Where are they going to play!

Fourth, environment. I wouldn’t have minded as much if the WC went to the US instead of Australia. They have the stadiums, and they have a better environment. Not the constant plus 40 degree heat. Air-conditioned stadiums? Yea, right. Tell that to the tourists who will be staying there for a month.

I would have much preferred to see it being held in Japan or the US, even if they’ve hosted it before (which is another reason why we deserve it – we’ve never had it!).

Also about the 2018. England seemed like such strong favourites, yet they had as little votes as we did? Craziness. Even the president of FIFA recognised England as the “motherland” of football.

So who is with me on boycotting the 2022 World Cup? lol

If it isn’t possible to revoke hosting rights, I sure do hope we try for 2026 (and join Oceania’s confederation) otherwise me may never see a WC hosted in Australia in our generation.
