FIFA delegation concludes tour in Houston

FIFA's World Cup inspectors wrapped up a three-day, five-city visit in Houston as they weigh potential venues for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments.
FIFA's 24-member executive committee will vote Dec. 2. Europe is expected to be awarded the 2018 tournament, with England, Russia, Spain-Portugal and Belgium-Netherlands competing. The U.S. is facing Australia, Japan, Qatar and South Korea for 2022.
The inspectors also visited New York, the White House, Miami and Dallas.
Sunil Gulati, head of the U.S. World Cup bid committee, was asked to compare this effort with Chicago's failed bid for the 2016 Olympics. Gulati says the process is different, and that this committee is putting together a proposal that he hopes FIFA will find "irresistible."
