US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup

Of the 80 games, 10 matches will be held in Canada, 10 in Mexico and 60 in the USA with the final played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, home to the NFL's New York Giants and New York Jets.

"I was sad when the victor was announced", said former Moroccan footballer Abdelkrim El Hadrioui.

The US, however, hosted the World Cup on its own merit in 1994, while Mexico have twice before organised the tournament, in 1970 and in 1986.

As nice as it is to travel and experience new countries, having the tournament come to our own backyard is a chance that simply can not be missed, especially considering it will be held in three separate countries for the first time in the history of the World Cup.

World Cup opening matches: How will Russian Federation v Saudi Arabia compare to previous years? The only two official bids came from the U.S. -Canada-Mexico of North America, and Morocco of Africa. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent.

Delegates had been faced with a clear choice - the joint North American bid boasts modern, established stadiums and well-developed transport links underpinned by Mexican football fervour.

Morocco's candidacy, on the other hand was believed to be strong with support from a majority of African countries and the European confederation.

Militants kill one in attack on interior ministry in Kabul
Interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish said one policeman was killed and five were wounded. The Amaq statement did not provide the names or specify the number of attackers.

Morocco's presentation took some not-so-subtle shots at the US, highlighting the fact that guns are banned in Morocco and stating that during the 1994 World Cup even world-renowned soccer stars were unknown in America.

The 1994 World Cup, staged by the USA, had the highest average attendance in the tournament's history, while Mexico was the first nation to host the event twice.

While Ghana's former FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi has been handed a 90-day Fifa ban following corruption allegations, the country's government is on the verge of dissolving the association, with two GFA officials barred from travelling to attend the congress in Russian Federation.

Canada for instance pointed to cities like Toronto, Edmonton and Montreal, which will now get the chance to host the global tournament.

Football's showpiece event will return to the North American continent for the first time since 1994 when the United States hosted the tournament.

Separately, a decision at the Federation Internationale de Football Association congress on whether the Qatar tournament would be expanded from 32 to 48 teams was put off. Mr Infantino said no vote could take place until discussions had taken place with the organisers of the 2022 tournament.
