If the World Cup in 2022 was taken from Qatar...

...and England asked to host, which stadia would you select?

Based on the fact that twelve were used in Russia, please name 12 stadiums from England only...

Please also state where you’d play your FOUR QUARTER FINALS.

If Turf Moor is unavailable due to the continuing works on the corner stands then probably Odsal.

Haha, that has terracing which is nit deemed ‘safe standing’ so Odsal is not allowed!

Do love Ibrox and Celtic Park but having one and not the other would cause more problems than it would be worth. You couldnt have 3 glasgow stadiums.

As per cfc's quarter final selection, but swap Hampden and millenium in the quarters for St James' and Villa park.

As for the round games, bellend rd wouldn't get a sniff. Very disappointing stadium - sooner see Hillsboro included.
