It was already decided more than a year ago that Russia would be hosting the 2018 Fifa World Cup. This information was only revealed to us earlier on today. Already players, coaches and team owners have come out saying that this don’t approve of their decision to allow for the Fifa World Cup to be hosted in Russia. The reason for this is because Vladimir Putin is acting as a leader who resembles the likes of Adolf Hitler. He has openly invaded one country and has plans to invade more. Russia is also now being considered as their own nation not connected to the NATO.
Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America has openly said that if Russia invades another country he will be taking action and there have been rumors that Vladimir Putin is planning to invade more neighboring countries to Russia. This means that a war could more than likely be a possibility in the future and if this is the case that means Football players from all around the world would have to play in a war ridden country.
The fact of the matter is that if a war begins in Russia, there is a good chance that the venue will be held in another country. Security was tripled in Brazil due to potential terrorist activity, just imagine the level of security that would be needed in Russia. Football Analysts believe that Fifa Officials choose Russia to get on national news and promote the world cup that much more. It seems like doing this would be the worst decision that Fifa Officials have made. Prior to Russia they wanted were considering Iran as the next host, making many think that Fifa Officials aren’t thinking clearly.
