Watch Australia's FIFA World Cup Bid Video

Submitted by | 2,191 views
Like many Australian residents, who are having high hopes and expectations that this beautiful country will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, I am really disappointed to hear the news this morning that Australia lost its bid to the tiny nation of Qatar.
Where in the world is Qatar? Do they play good football out there? Can they match huge football fans here in Australia, United Kingdom or  the United States? Do they have huge Stadiums? Surely, they have the money and they can build the most advance and glamorous stadium.  They can also populate Qatar with all their wealth knowing that Qatar is one of the richest nations in the Arab Nations.They can hire probably Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, or the most famous Holywood Stars to lure people into that country. Or Maybe, they can provide the best accommodation  and services to football fans 24/7 that no one can dream of. Perhaps, free entry, free transport, free food, free return flight via Qatar Airlines! Wow, maybe all of us would be excited to go!
Okay, forget it. No sour graping.  Australians should still be proud of themselves because the world knows how this country can handle huge sporting events like the FIFA World Cup. Here’s a video I found in Youtube uploaded by user stephenvz showcasing Australia’s best and why Australia is ready for this huge event.
