    Please proof read

    I have just watched the news and written this in about 10 minutes. Could somebody point out the grammarical (have i just made that word up?)errors for me please.

    thanks in advance

    I can't believe the news that 'Russia' have been awarded Football's 2018 World Cup Finals! Todays decision, made by the 22 voting members- with more than a helping hand from FIFA's outspoken president - has left a bitter taste in my mouth. No doubt the media, the BBC in particular, will be blamed by many for England's failure to be chosen as the host nation, but i don't think that made any difference to the final result.

    If FIFA's President openly warns delegates about the 'dangers of the media' prior to the ballot, and with neither North Korea of China in the race, it is little wonder that the Russians were victorious.

    Hello,

    The word you're looking for is 'grammatical'.

    It looks mostly fine to me.
    I'd quibble with 'Russia has' not have, and 'Today's' should have the possessive 's

    Regards

    I agree with Richard.

    In addition - always capitalise I.

    And you mean '...North Korea or China...'
