2018 and 2022 Vote this week Amid Bribe Allegations

On Thursday, December 2, 2010 in Zurich, football's world governing body Fifa will announce the countries it has chosen to host the World Cup in 2018 and 2022.
There are four bids on the table for the 2018 World Cup, with England hopeful of beating Spain/Portugal, Netherlands/Belgium and Russia for the right to host the competition for the first time since 1966.
Five bidders are vying for the 2022 tournament: Japan, Australia, United States of America, South Korea and Qatar.

What is especially interesting is that:
The BBC Panorama, broadcast on Monday, alleged that Fifa officials Issa Hayatou - Confederation of African Football chief, from Cameroon - Nicolas Leoz, from Paraguay, and Ricardo Teixeira, from Brazil, took bribes from a sport marketing firm which was awarded lucrative World Cup rights.
The men will vote this week on the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids.
