The cost of the U.K. trying to get the vote for Britain getting the 2018 FIFA world cup here must be astronomical,; flying Beckham, and the P.M. everywhere. I hope this unwarranted cost, in my opinion, is published on the net as 'government expense' somewhere loud and clear. Not surprising Russia with all her money got the vote. But the fact that Russia has never had the World Cup before must have been supportive of Russia winning the 2018 now. All I hope is we have a good enough team for winning the World Cup in 2018.
