FIFA president welcomes England's bid for 2018 World Cup

I remember people complaining that last year's US presidential election started to early (first ad ran in July of 2003), but that race has nothing on England. It is now 2005. Germany will host the World Cup in 2006 and South Africa will get it in 2010. The 2014 cup will be held in South America, but the bidding will not start till next year. So isn't talk about 2018 a bit early?

Not for FIFA President Sepp Blatter. He says that he would welcome a bid from "the homeland of football."

Still I must wonder how much of rotation it is if Europe gets the Cup every other or every third time.
