Will Belgium Sue FIFA for Fraud?

Belgium and Netherlands bid together on the 2018 World Cup, spending $10.2 mil in the process. If Russia got the host job through fraud, Belgium wants their money back.
Belgium may seek compensation over the €4.5m (£3.2m) spent on its unsuccessful 2018 World Cup bid if Fifa’s decision to award the finals to Russia is found to be fraudulent. 
“If fraud is proven, it is obvious to me that we will seek compensation,” the Belgian Football Federation chairman, Fran├žois de Keersmaecker, told Het Nieuwsblad. The country made a joint bid with the Netherlands that cost €9m.
The article doesn't mention if Netherlands has decided also to sue.
