Cameron hints England could host 2022 World Cup

0

BRUSSELS: British Prime Minister David Cameron hinted on Thursday that England would be ready to stage the 2022 World Cup if Qatar loses it because of corruption allegations. FIFA has faced calls for a new vote on the 2022 World Cup host bid and launched an investigation as a graft row over Qatar’s winning bid intensified. Qatar has denied allegations by Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper that Mohamed bin Hammam, a former FIFA vice president from Qatar, paid more than $5 million to football officials around the world before the 2010 vote that awarded the 2022 contest to the Gulf state.
