  • World Cup 2026: U.S.-Mexico-Canada bid chosen as host

The first referee in the spotlight is Nestor Pitana of Argentina, who handles the Russia-Saudi Arabia match in Moscow on Thursday.

Perhaps most crucially, Americans are no longer isolated from the world game and thousands of them watch Europe's Champions League and England's Premier League, developing a knowledge of the sport and its greatest talents.

It's safe to say that as well as wins, there are some World Cup moments that are remembered more than who came out on top. Moreover, this is Messi's last World Cup and I'm sure he won't disappoint us.

The World Cup will return to the United States, 32 years after the groundbreaking first tournament in the country, and organizers are promising a very different experience for fans traveling to the country.

Decisions over which cities will be selected will happen over the next two years.

If you don't know your James Vardy from VAR, you'll need to brush up on your World Cup 2018 knowledge - especially if you want to hold your own in football chats at work or in a bar.

"We're coming together as a united front to show our support for Mexico", said Canada's Dwayne de Rosario.


Morocco received only 2.7 out of five, with red flags raised over several critical components of the bid. "We should have a MLS team already", he said.

According to a US Soccer press release, the number and diversity of cities in Canada, Mexico and the United States represent the most comprehensive and far-reaching hosting strategy ever developed for a mega-sporting event.

Finally, the President of the United States, Donald trump turned to the allies to support a joint bid, and Ukraine is an ally of the United States.

Soccer excitement is in the air at local sports bars for the FIFA World Cup.

The bribery scandal put the governing body on the brink, FIFA President Gianni Infantino told the congress ahead of Wednesday's vote.

Trump had earlier warned that any countries voting against the North American bid would suffer consequences in trade deals.

Federation Internationale de Football Association now has the final say on which cities are selected to host games and whether all three countries are guaranteed a place at the tournament. He scored four goals in six games, and it was only through his infamous illness on the day of the final that prevented him stamping his name on that clash as well.
