"I have to convince them [USA] not to bid. It is easier for me to convince America to wait until 2022 ... I have said to England that until America gets knocked out, that's where my vote will have to go."

-- Jack Warner, FIFA vice president and Concacaf president, who wants to back England as host for the 2018 World Cup. FIFA president Sepp Blatter recently said he wants the 2018 and 2022 World Cup venues to be chosen in 2011. U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati responded in a statement, "We are still in the process of reviewing a possible bid for the World Cup. ... Neither the comments made by FIFA regarding the possibility of a double tender for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups or recent comments attributed to any FIFA members or potential host candidates have caused us to diverge from this plan."
