It’s Russia and Qatar!

It seems the buzzing of the vuvuzela will never end in South Africa as it continues to echo all the way to Zurich. In fact, the blarring sound channels through the Middle East all the way to Eastern Europe.

Just hours ago, FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter unvealed the result of the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup host and it was a joyous moment for 1.6 million population of Qatar and perhaps the equal amount of Russian mobs. Russia will be the successor to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup right after Brazil, beating England and a couple of football powerhouse joint-host bids. Qatar is next in line to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup beating the favourites such as U.S.A, Australia and Japan.

Whenever the sun rises of one side of the world, it sets on the side other. England’s top personalities such as Prince William, David Beckham and the Prime Minister was the frontliner for England’s bid to secure the 2018 host but however was dissappointed with the result despite being the favourite.

Personally, I was looking forward to a World Cup in England. Some tea and scones for a change, perhaps? But Moscow is a great place to be too. Won’t mind going for a World Cup match in 2018.
