Sepp Blatter has ruined international football. The former FIFA president, who is serving a 90 day ban, has confessed to fixing the 2018 World Cup in Russia and 2022 in the US. Blatter let it all spill in this tell all interview with the Russian News Agency- 

The 2022 World Cup decision for the US was changed last minute, due to Qatars expensive bid.

“It was agreed inside the group that we go to Russia because it has never been to Eastern Europe, and for 2022 we go back to America.

"And so we would have the World Cup in the two biggest political powers.”

FIFA is currently being investigated by Swiss authorities in what could go down as one of the biggest and most expensive scandals in history.

England, like many other countries are furious due to the large amounts of money spent on their World Cup bid. England spent £21m for their bid to host the 2018 World Cup, and are furious with FIFA.

England along with other countries wants their money back.

More to come on the FIFA saga……




 Steven Gerrard will have to wait until next season for
another shot at the title, after his team LA Galaxy lost 3-2 to Seattle

Gerrard’s words after the game were a sad reflection of his
entire career, especially when it all went wrong for Liverpool in 2014.

“I think if you analyze the whole season we were brilliant
up until three or four weeks ago and all of the sudden we have been conceding
sloppy goals and that certainly got carried into tonight.”

“I think it makes you more determined, especially for me. It
could be my last season of football, I don’t know,” he said. “I certainly don’t
want to feel how I’m feeling now this time next year.”

Galaxy’s playoff exit is the earliest in the clubs history.
Form doesn’t lie, and it shows as Galaxy only managed to win one game out of 10
in all competitions.
