World Cup 2018, England not in contention at all.

Sunset falls on England Bid for World Cup 2018

It appears we really were not in it at all from the start, having been knocked out in the first round. So was it worth the Mayor of London really going given the transport gridlock most Londoners have had to suffer this week?

Clearly FIFA went for expansion of the game into new territories like Eastern Europe for 2018 via Russia and the Middle East via Qatar in 2022, after the success of South Africa. Rather then consolidating such expansion via established anchors like England. For the sake of the game l hope FIFA have not over extended themselves.
