A report by MPs into England’s failed bid to host the 2018 World Cup says the Football Association has failed to learn lessons from previous attempts.
The England bid received only two votes as the finals were awarded to Russia.

It calls on the FA to hold a review and criticises Fifa’s response to recent bribery claims.
