ESPN’s Jorge Ramos started a firestorm yesterday when he sent out a tweet that FIFA has talked to the United States about potentially hosting the 2022 World Cup. As most of you know, Qatar is slated to host the event in 2022, but now they are under investigation for bribery. The president of the United States Soccer Federation, Sunil Gulati spoke about the issue and claims that the ESPN report is false.
“They haven’t asked us, and I cannot imagine it happening anytime soon,” he said.
This could be a situation where Gulati is trying to keep this issue behind closed doors. This is starting to pick up steam quickly so I’m interested to see how this will end.
