The 2026 World Cup will be played in North America

Lopetegui sacked by Spain on eve of World Cup

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the World Cup in 2026".

If the united North American bid is successful, it would be the first time Canada will partake in hosting the men's World Cup tournament.

Of the 23 cities chosen as potential host sites, 15 now have MLS teams.

Mayor Don Iveson is hopeful Edmonton will snag three or four games.

"United States (is) working together with Canada and Mexico for the United bid, for your advice and your support".

The English Football Association revealed it had voted for the United 2026 bid in a statement.

During the weeks before the 2014 World Cup, the United States played Nigeria before a regional record crowd of 52,033 at EverBank Field.

The World Cup remains the second-biggest global sporting event after the Olympic Games and offers a ratings bonanza for broadcasters around the world.

"We've got to look at this as an opportunity, not a problem", Tory said. "If we could put the question of the province's support behind us, then we can make sure that we check all the other boxes and make it to the final 16".

According to Business Insider, the USA will whittle a list of 17 metropolitan down to 10 to host games. The shot-stopper made 105 appearances for his country, and was in goal when Brazil won the 1994 World Cup.

The city and federal government are already on board with funding the matches. Mexico and Canada will get 10 games each. Luis Rubiales was not present at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, the RFEF president instead in Krasnodar to deliver the news that Julen Lopetegui had been sacked as coach just two days before their opening game with Portugal.

"The longer the province delays, the more challenging that is, the more risk is that we drop off as one of the seven cities that doesn't get to do it".

"The onus will be on the powers-that-be to make sure the money and attention flows to those underserved communities, the money trickles down and is invested in the right ways".

"I would like to reaffirm the determination of my country to continue to work for football and realise one day our dream to host the World Cup in Morocco". "Commonwealth is an fantastic stadium, I love playing there".

"The United bid was strong and if it was just the United States, I think Morocco would have beaten them", said Cameroon federation official Kevin Njomo, whose country voted for Morocco. "But when I was five years old, a country called Canada welcomed us in", he told delegates at the FIFA Congress in Moscow.
