Soccer’s World Cup in Iraq?
Sounds improbable, but Prince Faisal of Jordan thinks it could happen one day. Jordan and Iraq are mulling a possible joint bid to stage soccer’s biggest showcase after 2014, the prince said Wednesday in The Times and Guardian newspapers.
When the World Cup went to Asia in 2002, it was co-hosted by Japan and South Korea.
Because FIFA is rotating the World Cup around the world, the next opportunity for the Middle East, which comes under the Asian confederation, would be 2018.
