US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup finals

The North American proposal is referred to as United 2026, as it bested a rival Moroccan bid, 134 votes to 65. The administrator of Goan origin was ably assisted by another NRI, Allahabad-born Sunil Gulati, former president of US Soccer and a hugely influential member of the all-powerful FIFA Council.

In the closing days before the vote, Trump ― who won't be president during the 2026 World Cup, even if he wins re-election in 2020 ― promised that visiting players and fans would not face visa problems around the tournament.

The country's hopes of becoming the second African country to host the cup after South Africa in 2010 hit a bump last week when a Federation Internationale de Football Association task force scored the bid 2.7 out of 5 following an inspection.

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.

"Due to unforeseen logistical circumstances, the Saudi flag bearers' delegation will unfortunately no longer be able to attend the opening of the 2018 FIFA World Cup", Coca-Cola said in a statement to Reuters.

‘Minecraft: Story Mode’ will become a Netflix 'interactive story'
The representative also said the Stranger Things project would live on Telltale's platform and not on Netflix's service. No running, jumping, shooting, or climbing that would necessitate an actual video game controller.

Federation Internationale de Football Association offered a glowing technical assessment of the United bid - but subjective factors could have influenced votes.

And while Glenn is aware of England's potential to host the World Cup, pointing to the success of the London 2012 Olympics, he says the Women's Euros is the FA's sole focus.

It followed a campaign centered around record crowds, existing venues and a forecast revenue of $14.3 billion (£10.6 billion/€12.1 billion).

"I think it will make more countries believe they have a chance of being treated fairly, and equitably and I think the FA are right in that mix".

BRAZIL are set to win this year's World Cup with Germany likely to be a close runner-up, according to artificial intelligence (AI) which has ran through simulations and predicted the victor of this year's tournament. "Categorically, nobody", Cordeiro said.
