England to host 2018 world cup! Apparently…

December 2, 2010 6pm in Random Ramblings | Comments (1)

So I just checked the news, and according to stuff.co.nz, England are hosting the football world cup in 2018! That will come as quite a shock to football fans, considering that it’s actually Russia that was officially announced.

Good on you stuff.co.nz – it’s been clear for a long time from reading their website that they don’t employ proofreaders, and this just proves it. Although in saying that, five minutes later this embarrassing mistake was off their website. But not before I captured a screenshot!!! :-D

England to host 2018 world cup

The text says “The ‘home of football’ England will host the 2018 football World Cup and middle-eastern nation Qatar will host the 2022 tournament, Fifa president Sepp Blatter announced”. Heh what a cool name, Sepp Blatter.

Anyway, it was clear that England weren’t going to host it, after reporters here ran stories about FIFA officials accepting bribes!
