Bad news for english football as England lost the right to stage the world cup 2018 after Russia won the bid. This comes after some great last minute work from david beckham, prince william and David Cameron, questions will be asked now if the BBC and Panorama program effected the bid.

Word is England was voted out in the early stages, Russia presented itself as a huge nation which had never before staged the World Cup, contrasting it with western Europe where all the major nations have staged the event

The result was just made after 3pm today in zurich, Qatar won the bid to stage the 2022 world cup and only has 18 professional clubs but money is no object for the gas rich Gulf Arab state

Results below

2018 World Cup
Round 1: England 2 votes, Netherlands/Belgium 4 votes, Spain/Portugal 7 votes and Russia 9 votes (as no absolute majority was reached, the candidate with least amount of votes, England, was eliminated)

Round 2: Netherlands/Belgium 2 votes, Spain/Portugal 7 votes and Russia 13 votes (Russia obtained an absolute majority)
