Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter has declared that England deserve to host the World Cup in 2030.
The Swiss, whose reign at the governing body ended in 2015 amid its corruption scandal, told Sky Sports News that a joint bid involving the other home nations would also be a strong contender for that year's tournament.
"I think that England deserve to organise the World Cup. They have had it in 1966 so it is a long time ago," he said.
"With Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland they will be candidates I am sure.
"With 48 teams [in a World Cup], you need more than one country [to host]."
The 2022 World Cup is due to take place in Qatar, while the USA, Mexico and Canada were recently named as co-hosts for the 2026 competition.
