    FIFA are expected to announce which country will be hosting the 2018 World Cup in the next few minutes (although there are rumours that the decision has been pushed back until 3:15).

    Do you think England could still win the bid after the press intrusion that FIFA hates so much? Do you, for some reason, want another country to win the bid?

    As soon as the decision comes through, I'll post it here.

    WINNER: Russia.

    Bidders:

    ENGLAND

    RUSSIA

    SPAIN & PORTUGAL

    HOLLAND & BELGIUM

    Very exciting! Looks like Russia did really well in their presentation and Spain/Portugal had a shocker. Looks like it's between us and the Russki's...

    England are down to 1/2 to win the bid and shortening. Either someone knows something or there's an awful lot of late, patriotic money...

    Yeah, although there's no doubt England has the best presentation. I think Russia will just tip it, though, FIFA want to spread football across the world, and they'd be doing that if they held the world cup in Russia.

    There are suggestions that we've gone out in the first round. Respected sports journo Henry Winter is claiming that there's no hope. God, I hope he's wrong.

    I sincerely hope that the rumours aren't true.

    To go out in the 1st round would be horrific!
