December 02, 2010 (KATAKAMI / NUMBER10.GOV.UK) — The PM said he was bitterly disappointed that England was unsuccessful and said “it was hard to see what more we could have done”.

Mr Cameron said England had the best technical bid, the strongest commercial bid and “a real passion for football” but added: “It turns out that’s not enough.”

 

He said:

“I would pay huge tribute and credit to David Beckham, who gave an inspirational speech, to Prince William, who worked incredibly hard and spoke brilliantly.

“The whole of the team worked round the clock. They produced the best technical bid, they produced a fantastic commercial bid, they brought the country together.

“It’s hard to see what more you can do, but in the end it turns out having the best technical bid, the best commercial bid, a passion for football, that’s not enough.”

Russia will host the World Cup in 2018 and Qatar in 2022.   (*)
