Why the 2018 World Cup was in Russia instead of Australia?

Since the 2002 World Cup was in South Korea and Japan, and 2010 World Cup was in South Africa.

    Because Russia deserved it. Why are the US and England allowed to host a World Cup, but not Russia?

  • Offhand, because Russia bribed a bunch of FIFA executives.  Same reason Qatar won for 2022.  Ideally, England would have hosted 2018 and Australia 2022 (Australia didn't bid on 2018; they only bid on 2022 and lost out to United States and Qatar who won).

    It is good to work for the proper consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, by the pope together with all the Catholic bishops of the world on one special day.  As of yet, the consecration has not been properly performed, and thus Russia continues to spread its errors, which include communism, atheism, abortion, divorce, sexual sins, the suppression of free speech, the suppression of religious freedom, feminism and excessive socialism, around the world.
