2022 World Cup to Qatar! 2018 to Russia!

For whom the FIFA bell tolls....

2022 World Cup Round-by-round vote totals (wow):

Round 1: Australia 1 vote, Japan 3 votes, Korea Republic 4 votes, Qatar 11 votes, USA 3 votes (Australia eliminated)

Round 2: Japan 2 votes, Korea Republic 5 votes, Qatar 10 votes and USA 5 votes (Japan eliminated)

Round 3: Korea Republic 5 votes, Qatar 11 votes, USA 6 votes (Korea Republic eliminated)

Round 4: Qatar 14 votes and USA 8 votes (Qatar obtained an absolute majority)

Another gut punch: USSF failure to challenge and concede CONCACAF format changes now looks incredibly poor. Epic combination fail for USSA.

Update 7:50: Qatar, wow, didn’t see that coming and think it’s a poor move. Qatar World Cup 2022!

Update 7:44: Russia awarded 2018 World Cup. TSG 1 for 1.

Update 7:10 PT: Auditorium is being filled. Twitter sentiment is that Russia’s 2018 is highly unlikely.

The moment is nearly upon us.

According to TSG reader A.J. on Twitter we are to wait for white smoke from the FIFA chapel as oppose to American football expert Curt Menefee’s announcment on Fox.

According to Menefee, Edson Buddle may be on the 2022 team. That’s all you need to know.

The first 2018 announcement will be made around 7am with the 2022 announcement apparently coming about 15 minutes thereafter.

Still favor Russia for World Cup 2018 and the States for 2022 with the Aussies, first, on their heals.

Go USA bid this morning.

Some moments from the last time the US World Cup Denim Team hosted the sport’s biggest event with the decision lurking less than 24 hours away.

Who doesn’t think 1994 retro kits should be required?
