"There are moves to give it to England. I must fight that. I really don't believe that we should just lay down and play dead to anyone who wants to take the World Cup from CONCACAF. I know in FIFA there are those persons who believe the rules should be changed to satisfy Europe but I tell you this today we shall fight it to the very end."

and ...

"If by chance, in 2018, the World Cup were to go to Europe, I'm quite sure, with the English luck as it is, they won't get it. It'll be Italy, Spain, or it might even be France. Nobody in Europe likes England. England -- who invented the sport -- has never had any impact on world football. England at no time has had the love and support of Europe. For Europe, England is an irritant."

-- Trinidadian Jack Warner, president of CONCACAF and a powerful member of FIFA's executive committee, in a BBC World Service interview to be broadcast on Saturday, dismissing England's chances if FIFA's rotation policy brought the World Cup finals to Europe in 2018. If FIFA's current rotation system was maintained, a CONCACAF nation (USA?) would be selected to host the 2018 World Cup.
