Ever since the announcement of Qatar winning the right to host the 2022 World Cup, there has
been a lot of grumblings about the fairness of the FIFA Executive committee as well as those who
said they were supposed to be voting for the USA but decided to go another way.
Since then I have been discussing on my Internet show the different stories that portrayed a
very negative light on FIFA -- when they would move the World Cup from the extreme hot temperatures
in June and July into the winter months during the European seasons.
Long suffering Scottish football fans still reminisce about Archie Gemmill's wondergoal against the
Netherlands in the 1978 World Cup and the Tartan Army have been starved of participation in a major
international competition since the 1998 World Cup in France thirteen years ago. With the
qualifiers for next year's European Championships in Poland and Ukraine four matches in and the
draw for the 2014 World Cup in July, what are Scotland's chances of making the cut (see the BetUS
sportsbook for the latest odds)?
