As it turns out they were evens favorites late last night, but the fact the Prime Minister Valdimir Putin didn’t arrive in Zurich for the vote, it was thought that Russia must have therefore had little chance. Not so, as it turns out. It’s of course a fantastic win for Russia, and now they will build new stadia, and there will be huge investment made for the World Cup in 8 years time, and the win will certainly help Russia big time in their economic development, not to mention their football development. It will be interesting to see who they will nominate as manager before the World Cup, because they will be expected to perform well in their home country.
