Morocco and roll: dice were stacked against ‘African’ bid

British Columbia's government is standing by a decision that will leave the province on the sidelines when the World Cup comes to Canada in 2026.

At least that's the prediction of Achilles, a cat in St Petersburg reputed to have psychic powers. There is now a professional league that includes impressive infrastructure such as stadiums and training grounds, European games are omnipresent on television, top players now come from across the country, and the World Cup is big business.

Jevne admitted that co-hosting 2026 World Cup would make the press box upgrades a priority.

Botswana, Cape Verde and Lesotho are the other countries. If soccer leadership plays its cards right, it will be take its place as America's fifth "major sport" by the time the 2026 World Cup rolls around.

There was a feeling before the world's football associations gathered at the Moscow congress that more might sentimentally favour Morocco's bid, but all the numbers were stacked in North America's favour.

Cobi Jones, who played in the 1994, 1998 and 2002 World Cups - watched the bid in a NY office with former teammate Brian McBride, U.S. Soccer CEO Dan Flynn and U.S. National Team GM Earnie Stewart. "And I'm a proud Canadian citizen", said Davies, who was born in a refugee camp when his parents escaped civil war in Liberia.


"It was a hard life". Former U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati told ESPN the most important time in the U.S. capitalizing on 2026 starts today.

"The people of North America have always welcomed me".

Here's what you need to know and what we're still waiting to find out.

Montreal city Coun. Rosannie Filato, who is responsible for sports and recreation, said the city implemented an action plan in 2016 to host global sporting events and is investing in transit systems. But what is interesting in this "discourse of castigation" is the deep-rooted bias that western Europe - and the United States - harbours against Russia: "It can't really host amega event of this size and scale", goes the general argument.

This is an fantastic honour for any English man or woman. "One win and everything changes, players lose their focus".

"It's starting to hit home now, that, wow, it's here". Cordeiro, Reed and de Maria held follow-up meetings with federations in Moscow, chatted individually with countries they missed while on tour and on Monday and Tuesday, presented to all six confederation congresses. The defining sights and sounds of World Cups past have not been the great goals, saves and skills on the field but something out of left field - it is the vuvuzelas, animals and the climax to Nessun Dorma that stirs the memory.
