How exciting would that be...

Chances are slim to none I'm afraid!

I am starting to believe it is possible, I have a theory that FIFA leaked the emails as they want to avoid a disastrous Qatari world cup. They can clean up or appear to clean up the scandal of bribes which we all know are fact, but a bad world cup could be much worse

Wouldn't the USA get it if Qatar don't, seeing as they were the second nation with votes?

Would be unusual to give it to the nation with the least.

I guess if the whole process was rigged then nothing counts...

Would be amazing if miraculously we were able to host the WC.

A revote would be needed, because who is to say someone who voted for qatar did not have australia as their second choice.

Bonita mersiades is off to be interviewed in new york in regard to our bid, i have a feeling we have a little to answer for also

USA have indicated they won't be involved in bidding for anything run by Fifa until they've overhauled, so I suspect they'll sit out if there's a revote.

I hope they sit out anyway - not because it gives us more chance (I don't want us to host it anymore) - I just respect their principled stance.

Fifa are awful and it needs some big countries with big cajones to make a stand against them.
