Will the favorites prevail or will we be surprised by who is selected to host the World Cup finals? The US is definitely a contender for 2022. Like other countries, they sent celebrities to help them in their bid. They sent former President Bill Clinton and legend Morgan Freeman.
Which country will be the most convincing? England with their royalty Prince William and their recognizable soccer star David Beckham? Or Australia with their glamorous celebs like Nicole Kidman and Elle Macpherson?
Though, with the exception of David Beckham, what they have to do with sports is questionable. But, who hosts the World Cup in 2018 and 2022 is more of a political decision anyway, with the chosen nations reaping the rewards of having everyone’s eye on them during the games, plus the income that the games generate.
