What hope did Australian contingent have when people voting were being paid off? The joke is FIFAIronically, given the COVID Crisis worldwide (which will still be around in 2022), having the WC in Qatar is about the best place in the world to host it from an infrastructure and health and safety protocol POV. The USA (the only possible other alternate venue at this stage) certainly couldn't host it now.
Even if Qatar didn't win the hosting rights to it, Australia was never going to win it anyway, some bitter and angry Aussie fans still mad at FIFA simply do not know how embarrassingly bad our bid was.
Corruption aside, instead of being angry at FIFA and Qatar, the blame totally should be levelled at that Muppet Frank Lowy and The Clowns at the FFA at the time.
