A much-awaited FIFA report on the race to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups makes no suggestion that Russia or Qatar should lose the right to stage the tournaments. The 430-page report, released yesterday, had been under wraps since being completed by FIFA’s then-ethics investigator Michael Garcia in November 2014. FIFA chose to publish after the document was leaked to the German newspaper Bild. Russia was awarded the 2018 World Cup and Qatar the 2022 tournament in a single, secret vote in Zurich in December, 2010. In November 2014, his completed report was handed to the FIFA ethics judge at the time Hans-Joachim Eckert, whose 42-page summary said there was not enough evidence to reopen the bidding process.
