Australia Also To Bid for World Cup Finals 2018

Today's Observer newspaper indicates that Australia are preparing a bid for the 2018 World Cup.

It appears that Football Federation Australia (FFA) Chief Executive John O'Neill has already held informal discussions with the Fifa president Sepp Blatter this month.

Some might suggest that this is the only way Australia is ever likely to qualify for the World Cup finals, but I would never be so cynical. And, anyway, I don't want the World Cup to be held in England. Australia is a nice, warm country with nice, cold beer and therefore the ideal place for a football tournament.
