I know things are still up in the air about Brexit, but those thoughts are a little unkind on France.

For me, I want to see a Celtic World Cup (Ireland, Wales, Scotland) long before going down the football route of taking corrupt money.

Also Argentina/Uruguay, Italy, Spain and USA/Canada would be far better for growing the game

In fairness though, at least it is a major sport in France :D
