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.
