England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup Finals.

England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup Finals.

Rooney lifts World Cup???? Sportingbet have captain Rooney to lift the trophy at (14/1) for the World Cup in 2018.

Sportingbet.com, the web's leading online gaming company, has put together a selection of bets all based on having a future view focusing on the 2018 World Cup. England have announced their decision to run a campaign to host the finals in 2018 - and Sportingbet.com put them at (7/4) favourites to win the hosting rights.

But what will the 2018 tournament hold? Will England veterans Rooney and Micah Richards still have a place in the set up - you can get (2/1) on Rooney to be in the starting team for the 1st England game of the 2018 World Cup Finals and Micah Richards is placed at (5/1) to be joining Rooney.

Who will be the manager though - the appointment of Steve McClaren has again raised doubts over the credibility of English coaches - but we are talking about 11 years from now. Sportingbet have a selection of England greats who they think could be in the hot seat come 2018 finals - check out the odds on these English icons:

Stuart Pearce (15/2)
Alan Shearer (10/1)
Tony Adams (33/1)
Paul Ince (33/1)
Dennis Wise (40/1)
David Beckham (66/1)
Steven Gerrard (100/1)
Teddy Sheringham (250/1)
David Platt (500/1)

Or how about Sven having another crack at the big job - (500/1)

There is always hope that by the time this major championship comes round England would have learnt to play a different style of football however Sportingbet.com still place the starting line up to be a 4-4-2 formations (4/5) as the big favourite.

How about England to be hosting the tournaments as holders, you can currently get them at (10/1) to win the 2014 tournament in Brazil - dancing the Samba beat all the way home with the gold trophy.

Will the 'Big 4' still be dominating the Premier League at this time? You can get (5/1) on Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United all being in the Top 4 at the end of the 2017/2018 season. But will the Premier League exist by then? Sportingbet are offering (33/1) on a European Super League taking over from domestic football by then.

However looking at it in another way - the recent Giants/Dolphins clash at Wembley has opened up rumours of Premiership clubs playing regular season games in the US - you can get (33/1) on a regular Premiership fixture being played in the US by 2018 - or we could go even further and suggest that by the time Wembley opens its doors to world football in 2018 a Premiership team will be based in the US (500/1)- talk about franchise football!!!!
Who knows what the future holds and what indeed will happen in the 2018 tournament - but if we were to tell you 10 years ago that nearly half of Premiership clubs would be owned by foreigners, or that Wimbledon had up sticks and settled in Milton Keynes would you have believed me?

What about if I mentioned that David Beckham would have been plying his trade for LA Galaxy this time 10 years ago - or even that Scotland had more chance of qualifying for a major championship than England?

Lets hope England win the right to host the 2018 World Cup Finals - and with Sportingbet it is worth having a punt on.
