Not official yet but Spain, Portugal and Morocco are deemed to be favourites in a combined bid.

It's also rumoured England are going all the way to the Final! ;-)

No no! It’s the 100th Year Anniversary of the first World Cup held in 1930 in Uruguay 🇺🇾.

South America hasn’t hosted it for a while so I think Uruguay 🇺🇾 will get the nod, but co-hosting with some neighbouring countries.

Because until 1950 the best teams didn't bother turning up because it was worthless and pointless to them. They competed in the home nations instead.

So Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland back then were better than the likes of Hungary, Brazil, West Germany, Italy, Uruguay.
Ok, got it. :thumbup:

Pointless? Is that was because one of the “best teams” called England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 was worried it will lose to the good ol’ U.S. of A. like it did in 1950?

Obviously GIAE doesn't rate these sides and where the games were played. England may have not made the cut. 1972 was also a non WC year.

1938 France Italy Italy 4-2 Hungary
1934 Italy Italy 2-1 Czechoslovakia

Yes, pointless if the best teams aren't there.

England clearly didn't take 1950 seriously either. Hence, the team they named for that game.
