Mike Lee claims England should stop blaming FIFA for their failure to win the right to host the 2018 World Cup.
The Englishman, who helped Qatar win their bid to stage the 2022 World Cup, had been overlooked by England 2018 when he applied to become campaign strategist last year.
The sports consultant feels that England’s campaign had been marked by a series of blunders.
He said: “You can understand the frustration and disappointment but I’m not sure it’s healthy to blame everyone else and not reflect on the campaign itself.
“As you look back from the choice of the wrong bid leader in the first instance through to alienating the Premier League and a series of PR own goals, it has not been a success.
“A lot was made at the beginning of how it was not going to repeat the mistakes of 2006 but it actually repeated many of those mistakes and even ended up with three fewer votes, and only half as many as Holland and Belgium.”
The 52-year-old claims the bid was initially damaged by the scandal which saw former FA chairman Lord Triesman resign.
He added: “It was clear to everybody that Lord Triesman was not the right choice.
“He was not popular among his fellow colleagues here in English football. He was terribly unpopular in international football and for nearly 60 per cent of the campaign we were hampered.”
