What a terrible decision, being good at football doesn't mean you are capable of holding such a huge tournament. This is a terrible mistake. It's a shame that England will never get it, because of that bias old prick Blatter who doesn't like England at all, and punishes any team/player from here 10 times harder than any other country.
Terrible decision???? Europe has hosted the cup FOUR times since the last South America-hosted world cup in 1978: Spain 1982, Italy 1990, France 1998, and Germany 2006, when the cup before 1978 was regularly hosted in Latin America.
Europe just happens to have too much power and say as to where the Cup should be hosted and its no surprise European sites generally win out.
The truth is this whole "huge-tournament-capacity" argument is nothing but European snobbery and an excuse to keep the cup in Europe and benefit the home teams there.
Brazil is the 6th largest economy in the world and is certainly capable of hosting the cup.
