Maradona says Mexico does not deserve to host World Cup

Maradona says Mexico does not deserve to host World Cup

Despite the latest setback, Morocco vowed to continue its bid to host the tournament in future.

Although of no legal force, the letters were used by the U.S. Soccer Federation and the joint North American bid as they competed against Morocco's rival campaign. While you could argue no one can know for certain, we will all try to guess anyway, and this year there is quite a difference between what the public predicts versus what some pretty sophisticated statistical models have picked. Football today is the only victor.

The 2026 World Cup will head to North America for the fourth time and will be the first with 48 teams taking part. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent.

The FA was among the first to congratulate the United bid, which earned its vote.

The main factor at play here seems to be money.

Boston 2026 Bid Chair and New England Revolution Brian Bilello believes Foxborough has a great chance to host some of the games.

32 national teams from five continents are participating in 2018 Fifa World Cup. In one move, we have removed 24 teams in the competition and are left with eight.

From that point on, it is knockout stages. I'm a football fanatic as a whole and love to play the game, as it's a source of entertainment for me.
