World Cup History - Russia 2018

With just two days to go before FIFA executives were due to vote on who would host the 2018 and 2022 World Cup tournaments, Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron flew in to Zurich to (unsuccessfully) add some political muscle to the England 2018 World Cup bid.

Everyone thought that the major stumbling block was FIFA Vice-President and CONCACAF President, Jack Warner.

This opened up the whole bribing scandal; with a BBC Panorama documentary and numerous investigative journalist reports to follow.

FIFA have their own way of dealing with internal matters so doors are closed and windows opened for (as cynics would say) the accused to jump out of before they are pushed.
