Fifa vice-president Jack Warner said he will campaign to prevent England hosting the 2018 World Cup.
“If the World Cup were to go to Europe, I’m quite sure, with the English luck as it is, they won’t get it,” Warner told BBC World Service.
“There are moves to give it to England. I must fight that.
“It will be Italy, Spain, or even France who will get the World Cup if it goes to Europe. Nobody in Europe likes England. England invented the sport but has never made any impact on world football.”
It is believed Fifa president Sepp Blatter is set to end the World Cup rotation policy when the executive committee meet later in the year.
Warner, president of Concacaf, added that he would strive to bring the tournament to his region, which covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.
“I really don’t believe that we should just lay down and play dead to anyone who wants to take the World Cup from Concacaf,” he said.
