“A World Cup in England would be a truly memorable event – not only for our nation but for every nation.
“We’d extend a wonderful welcome to players and fans from across the world. And they would enjoy our diverse culture – one that means England would provide a home-from-home welcome for every fan and player.”
Unsurprisingly, the vice-president and face of the bid is David Beckham and the former England captain chimed in as well,
Beckham said: “Every time that I played with some of the biggest players in the world – players like (Zinedine) Zidane and Ronaldo – one of the first questions that they all asked me is what is it like playing in England and how much they like the passion that the fans show.
“There is no bigger support than our fans. The passion that’s shown in our country every time someone either puts an England shirt on or any time they play for their club, there are full stadiums everywhere,” he said.
“The passion does not just stop at Premiership level, it goes from Sunday League level and it goes all the way through every league that we’ve got up to the Premiership.”
England faces competition from Spain, Russia, Australia and the USA.
