Qatar has recently been alleged to have "bought" the 2022 World Cup by paying millions of dollars for World Cup votes. The decision to award Qatar as host of the 2012 World Cup has been criticized from its announcement. The United States finished second and would most likely get the bid if Qatar's is rejected.
It also lists other reasons for not having the World Cup there. It should be in the US and it seems that anti-US sentiment contributed to us finishing second. Anyways, Qatar should lose its bid over paying bribes.
