Blatter prefers Asian host for 2018 FIFA World Cup

FIFA will make a decision on which continent stages the 2018 World Cup tounament later this year but its President Sepp Blatter favours a World Cup in Asia, which could include Australia now they are part of the Asian Football Confederation. "Personally, I think that we should maintain a rotation," Blatter said. "At least with four continents. To take North and South America as one continent, Europe, Africa and Asia. This would mean that the next World Cup after 2014 would go to Asia," he said as quoted by PA Sport.
