What's terrible about it? I'm sure they'll do a fine job.

Qatar (or 'catarah' as Sepp calls it) is the favourite for 2022.

According to reports England were knocked out in the 1st round

Shame as I was looking forward to going there in 2018. I think they would have done a great job.

Money talks in FIFA.
A shame such a corrupt organisation runs the biggest sport in the world.

Delighted, Sky Sports News were so arrogant about the result before it was announced

Is that MayDay/Grace Jones with the Qatar team holding the World Cup?
That'd be Sheikha Moza, wife of the Emir of Qatar - I assume the handsome young dude is her son. She's actually a beautiful woman, or at least she was until she went a bit heavy with the botox.

And to those saying 'FIFA only cares about money' well, d'uh!

I think Russia would benefit most from hosting it, so well done them. Pitty English did not get it though. Would have been handy for Irish fans.

Is Qatar a dry nation? Or do they allow alcohol to be bought and consumed there?
bars and nightclubs are located only in expensive hotels.
It is illegal to consume alcohol or to be drunk in public.

Typical again - English media talk up their chances and then they don't win.

I'm not sure the BBC programme had much to do with it...FIFA wants the world cup to take place in new places. It's a pity for Ireland.
