Sydney, Dec 3 (AFP) FIFA's shock decision to hand the 2022 World Cup to Qatar was met with despair in Seoul, Sydney and Tokyo today as months of campaigning ended in heartbreak and accusations of financial skullduggery.

Australia had high hopes for its bid to host the world's biggest sporting event for the first time, while Japan and South Korea, joint hosts in 2002, put forward strong cases to hold the event independently.

But after a furious final day of lobbying in Zurich, FIFA boss Sepp Blatter announced yesterday that Qatar had won out for 2022, stunning onlookers who queried the tiny Gulf state's searing heat and lack of footballing pedigree.

"Soccer is dead to me," Jeremy Tom, 26, told AFP at a gathering of about 100 diehard Australian fans watching the vote on a big screen on the shores of Sydney Harbour in the middle of the night.
