This year´s FIFA World Cup is just over. France won 4-2 in the final to Croatia. With a lot of surprises such as Croatia, Belgium and Sweden advancing far in the tournament and with plenty of disappointments such as Germany, Spain, Argentina and Brazil it was a great tournament for the bookmakers. And for the few players who dared to bet frequently on the underdogs this time.
Next time the World Cup will be hosted by Qatar. This is a decision that has been much critiqued for several different reasons. Qatar is not a traditional football nation, it is very small and it is very hot. FIFA just confirmed that the tournament will be hosted in November and December instead of during the European summer as usual.
