nah ewood doesnt have the capacity nor the glamour for hosting world cup games. Stadiums like anfield, old trafford, st james', white hart lane, the emirates, hillsborough, wembley (of course), villa park, goodison, eastlands are stadiums that spring to mind. And lets not forget the best commonwealth games ever - Manchester 2002.
