Spain and Portugal Make Joint Bid



While many people think England are the frontrunners for hosting the 2018 World Cup, Spain and Portugal are attempting to change that.

Spain and Portugal have officially agreed to submit a joint bid to host the 2018 World Cup. 

The football federation president for Portugal, Gilberto Madail said that "This is an important day, the day we decide to go ahead and present a bid to FIFA."

FIFA has set a February 2nd deadline for submitting a bid to host, and there is simultaneous bidding going on for both the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Other than England, Spain and Portugal, the United States also were hoping to host the World Cup.
