Since last year, on China's bid to host the 2018 World Cup was widely rumored to stay Chuan, and with China's football across the board in last year's failure, a matter of course some of the media speculated that the Chinese Football Association may be able to bid to host the soccer World Cup to restore Chinese football honor, and as a result of FIFA at the same time allow the bid to host the country's bid in 2018 and two World Cup matches in 2022, media speculation yesterday that China is likely to apply for last-minute deadline to submit oral application.
