“Over ‘ere son. On me ‘ead!”

In a surprise move, The Vatican has offered to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup should the tournament be taken from it’s proposed hosts, Quatar, following claims that bribery and corruption was rife during the bidding process in December 2010.

A Vatican spokesman said last night “In the event that wrongdoing can be proven and the 2002 World Cup Finals have to be moved to another host country, we  would be more than delighted to stage the tournament here in and around Vatican City. After all we have a wonderful climate, conducive to playing good, free-flowing football, our reputation for honesty and integrity is second to none, and perhaps, even more importantly, we have the financial wherewithal to build the infrastructure and stadia that a great spectacle like this deserves.

“Lastly of course, we would welcome the influx of visitors from all over the world with open arms, particularly all those enthusiastic, fresh-faced football loving, young boys, and in some cases, girls too I suppose”
