Brazil in 2014
So, Brazil in 2014 it is then. As we discussed last week, all is not rosy in this choice, despite the obvious allure of that country; the lack of competition to win the rights to host the World Cup has hardly helped them kick things into shape, either.
I was going to write about this at length, considering also the situations for 2010 and 2018, but our friend at Gramsci’s Kingdom has already done so today. And he absolutely nailed the topic, too, so head over there now if you have any interest in the whys and wherefores of FIFA, Sepp Blatter and the World Cup.
