World Cup May Heal Tensions Between Canada, Mexico, U.S.

World Cup May Heal Tensions Between Canada, Mexico, U.S.

After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States made a decision to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017.

"USA, Mexico and Canada have proved they were worthy candidates and deserving winners to win the hosting rights for the championships due to the kind of infrastructure they have in place".

The video evidence helped sway Federation Internationale de Football Association to overwhelmingly approve the bid from the United States, Mexico and Canada.

But, like a bickering family in a photo studio, the three countries managed enough of a show of affection to be granted the right to co-host one of the world's biggest sporting events.

He also said Morocco would implement the projects included in its 2026 bid, despite losing to a joint bid by the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Morocco have confirmed that they will bid for the 2030 World Cup after losing out in the race to host the 2026 competition. "Morocco would have beaten them".




"For example, the 1966 World Cup in England and the 1994 tournament in the US are remembered as being successful - but in both of those cases the emphasis was on using existing stadiums".

It's a sharp turn from the setback Fox was dealt when the United States soccer team failed to qualify for this year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Shanks also noted that Fox won't have to deal with the logistics of showing games in time zones that differ from the United States. "What matters is tomorrow's game, because a World Cup game is very special and we want to give our best and we shall".

"I think this would be acceptable to Fifa because the World Cup is about taking football to the people", the Confederation of African Football Executive Committee member told BBC Sport.

Mexico is grouped with Germany, Sweden and South Korea in the opening round and will need to finish either first or second to proceed to the knockout stages.

Maradona suggested Mexico's record in the World Cup was not good enough as they have been eliminated in the round of 16 in six straight tournaments.
