    What you have in the end here is that 2 of the last 3 countries in the vote are from the Asian region while only 1 can host. After Korea was voted out, they voted for the last remaining member in Asia. The real question is how Qatar secured 11 votes (1 less than majority needed to win) in the very first round. Were they that much better than the others? I don’t even think Qatar believes that. One African member was found guilty and was removed from voting and the others have said the money came from a fake marketing firm. 2 other Africans have been indicated to have accepted money as well. The chair for the ethics committee is African and has conveniently decided not to investigate this further. The Qatari bin Hammen who was instrumental in winning the Qatar bid is now banned from fifa for life? FIFA is a fuckin joke.
