Saudi Crown Prince leaves for Russian Federation to attend World Cup opening

Achilles the cat lies on a table after attempting to predict the result of the opening match of the FIFA World Cup 2018

Joachim Low's defending champions are expected to be the first side to retain the World Cup since Brazil in 1962 by 38 percent of players.

This is the 5th time the North African nation has failed in its bid to host the World Cup.

However, the man who represents the United Kingdom's four nations on the ruling FIFA Council, said he personally would relish the idea of his homeland hosting the World Cup.

England, like Morocco, knows the feeling of falling short in the bid to host the World Cup. Almost half (46%) plan to watch the matches at home by themselves, while 28 percent report they'll be watching at a friend or family member's house.

The 69 majority for North America meant Federation Internationale de Football Association avoids a fifth consecutive risky, tricky World Cup after South Africa, Brazil, Russia, which opens on Thursday without a USA team, and Qatar in 2022.

Indeed, the US passed this global test of popularity, aided by the inclusion of Canada and Mexico on the ticket.

US, Mexico, Canada embark on World Cup history with winning bid
When Kelsey Plum was scorching all of women's basketball for the Huskies past year , Hec Ed would sell out in support. It's not unusual for cities to earn selection as team base camps even if they're not hosting matches.

"The bid books were made public, the technical process was very important, the voting was very transparent and that makes countries like Australia have much more confidence in making these bids". Former president Sepp Blatter would stress that FIFA's only experience of co-hosting - 2002 in Japan and South Korea - was tough to run with different laws, currencies and land masses.

It was a far more provocative tweet by Trump in April in which the president's veiled threats of geo-political repercussions against countries that opposed the American effort were seen to put the entire bid in danger. The United States hosted the tournament in 1994 while Mexico has hosted in 1970 and 1986.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first time that it will be hosted by three countries, although most of the tournament will be held in the United States, including the finals potentially being held at MetLife Stadium, capacity 82,000-plus across the bridge in East Rutherford, N.J.

UEFA will push strongly for the 2030 World Cup, keeping the modern rate of every third edition hosted in Europe. North America will host the six-team playoff tournament in November 2025 to decide the last two places in the 48-team lineup.

The united bid projected it would make a profit of $14 billion, twice what Morocco would have delivered.
