Trump threatens opponents of USA's World Cup bid

Генсека ФИФА обвинили в нарушении этического кодекса организации

Trump, while announcing the bid on his Twitter handle, warned against opposition from countries that the USA has always supported. "Together we are supporting the candidacy of Mexico, Canada and the United States to host the 2026 World Cup".

Indeed, the only other major hosting bid at present is Morocco, who has much of the Middle East's support. "This is because each Federation Internationale de Football Association member country receives a vote, no matter their size, which gives disproportionate influence to small nations", the newspaper says.

The North American bid so far has the support of 16 voting nations in South and Central America, as well as Saudi Arabia.

The United States last hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1994 but failed to qualify for the 2018 finals in Russian Federation.

The FIFA Congress will meet to select the 2026 host in Moscow on June 13, just before the start of this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Morocco also has bid to host soccer's showcase.

Meanwhile, also this week, Fifa announced Alrosa as the final partner of this summer's Fifa World Cup national team tournament.

Josh Rosen goes with No. 3
Rosen was not shy on Thursday night about where he though he should have been selected. "I understand the situation. These comments should, at the very least, broadcast that Rosen takes this all very seriously.

The U.S. -led bid, which would feature matches in 23-cities across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, has seen an unexpectedly strong challenge from Morocco, which has never before hosted the tournament.

The FIFA World Cup takes place every four years and is one of the most watched sporting events in the world.

"I used to play, and here we call it soccer", he said.

"From the beginning, we have received strong support from the Canadian, Mexican, and United States governments".

Earlier this month, the French Football Federation said it will vote for Morocco to host the World Cup.

The proposal, however, which Infantino put forward at a FIFA Council meeting in the Colombian capital Bogota in March, could greatly impact the current calendar and influence the FIFA World Cup.
