Kazakhs to bid for Cup
Oil-rich Kazakhstan is considering a bid to host the 2026 World Cup.
The country is already bidding against Beijing to host the 2022 Winter Olympics in Almaty and is now in discussions over a possible bid for the World Cup four years later.
Kazakhstan FA president Yerlan Kozhagapanov said: "We are discussing this issue with the government of my country to assess what are our chances. Our country is developing rapidly, our economy is growing, so why not?"
