Blatter hopes Spain bid to host World Cup

MADRID, April 29 (Reuters) - Sepp Blatter, president of soccer's governing body FIFA, has said it was about time Spain hosted another World Cup.

'I remember the World Cup in 1982,' Blatter was quoted as saying in Spanish media on Tuesday. 'It broke a number of records, the first with 24 countries, 17 stadiums and 14 cities something which has never been repeated.

'It is time for Spain to organise another (World Cup)... For this reason I hope they present their candidacy for 2018.'

Blatter, was speaking at a meeting for Spanish football representatives in Zurich. He also praised the standard of the Primera Liga.

'No other league can match the quality of the football played in Spain. It is the only five-star league,' he said.

'The football you see in Spain you don't see anywhere else. It is a football country and for this reason I would like them to organise another World Cup.'

The Spanish Football Federation's president Angel Maria Villar was cautious about the likelihood of Spain presenting a bid.

'It is something we will consider in the future. We need to take our time and look at it carefully,' he said.

Spain hosted the 1982 World Cup when Italy beat West Germany 3-1 in the final at the Bernabeu.

FIFA intends to decide on the 2018 hosts in 2011.

Several countries have expressed their interest in staging the finals in 10 years' time, including Australia, Japan, England and a joint Benelux bid centred on the Netherlands and Belgium.
