Greg Dyke rules out World Cup hosting

Steven Gerrard is retiring from international football, and ESPN FC's Paul Mariner explains why it's a good decision.

FA chairman Greg Dyke says that England will not be bidding for a World Cup in the future and called for widespread changes to be made at FIFA.

- Darke: England's embarrassment continues
- Kelly: Gerrard's retirement the correct call
- Palmer: The high of Gerrard's career

England will instead concentrate on trying to host UEFA tournaments with Wembley in the running to stage the semifinals and final of Euro 2020.

However, Dyke -- who gave evidence to the Culture Media and Sport (CMS) select committee on Tuesday regarding the bidding process for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar -- said it would not be productive for the FA to withdraw England's membership from the organisation.

"We've already taken the decision that we will not bid for FIFA tournaments -- our decision is we will concentrate in the years ahead on bidding for UEFA tournaments,'' Dyke said.

"I don't think we should walk out of FIFA because within a week everyone has forgotten you. I don't think that sort of gesture-politics would help. Trying to reform through UEFA and from the inside is the better way forward."

Dyke also called for widespread reform of FIFA, but admits it is unlikely to occur while Sepp Blatter remains president.

"We think there's a limited amount of time people should sit on the FIFA executive,'' he continued. "We voted in favour of that but most voted against it. It's that sort of reform that is needed to make sure we get proper turnover.

"Hopefully a new president coming in would take a look at the whole structure. A lot of the European FAs made it clear they didn't support Blatter but I'm afraid from the rest of the world he has overwhelming support.

"If he runs again he will win, but I think it's unlikely we at the FA would vote for him.''

Dyke told MPs at the select committee he is "certain" the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will not be held in the summer, insisting it is "too dangerous" due to high temperatures.

The bidding process for the 2022 tournament has also suffered from allegations of corruption and bribery, but FIFA's report into the claims has been delayed by several weeks until after Dyke has given evidence.

"There is no chance it [the World Cup] will be held in the summer of 2022," Dyke said about the tournament in Qatar, where summer temperatures can exceed 50 degrees Celsius. "The discussion is when else it will be held. If you've been to Qatar in the summer you can hardly walk in the streets.

"The health and safety people say it wasn't safe and it certainly wouldn't be safe. Air-conditioned stadiums are one thing but fans moving around on the streets, in and out of stadiums -- it will be too dangerous to have it there in the summer.''
