I really, really, really hope Australia get the nod to host the World Cup IN 2018, But the England bid looks like a very, very tough one. Other countries bidding are China, United States, Canada, Mexico, and Netherlands and Belgium Joint bidding.
There are a few problems to overcome though. The bid would require the co-operation of the Australian Football League (Aussie rules not the A-League) and the National Rugby League, who would need to alter their season to make some stadiums available. Both codes could argue that they’re more popular than soccer in Australia, so it could all depend on how keen they are to help out.
