Why are Moroccans bitter over World Cup 2026 flop?

This effort was an enormous priority for former U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati and his successor Carlos Cordeiro and the victorious effort could be an enormous boost to the sport in the United States. Canadian officials have said they will push to have games played in all three of their host cities.

CONCACAF, the governing body for soccer in North America, Central America and the Caribbean, has seven slots in the World Cup.

The North American bid to host the 2026 Wrorld Cup beat out Morocco on Wednesday, in a landslide 134-65 vote by Federation Internationale de Football Association, soccer's governing body.

Canada, along with the United States and Mexico, is part of the United Bid, trying to bring the World Cup back to North America for the first time since 1994.

At his "Direct Line" Q&A session on June 7, Putin said he had expected the Russian national team to succeed at the tournament. The United States staged the tournament in 1994.

Vancouver had an opportunity to join Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton as a potential host, but the united North American bid committee was forced to move forward without the West Coast city in March after failing to reach a deal over the cost of the tournament. Canada's sole World Cup appearance was in 1986 in Mexico, where they did not score a goal, losing to France, Hungry and the Soviet Union in the group stage.

Morocco have now failed with five bids to hold the World Cup and are unlikely now to have the financial means to put together another bid for the foreseeable future.

Edmontonian Alphonso Davies, 17, was the first to speak in the United Bid's final presentation to the FIFA Congress prior to the vote.

Trump credits his tweet in Rep. Sanford's defeat
Sanford had represented the Charleston district on and off for six terms, with eight years in the Governor's Mansion in between. And in a crucial race for Republicans in the Senate, Trump's pick easily won the nomination to run against Democratic Sen.

"It just made a lot of sense to accommodate and expand a tournament have all three countries host and really kind of spread the football love all around North America", Shanks added. But given the increase in the size of the field and FIFA's desire to squeeze every buck out of the tournament, it would be shocking if the host countries were not front and centre.

"There's a tremendous amount of ancillary events that go on around the World Cup", said Rick Catlett, president and chief executive officer of Gator Bowl Sports. There is also no National Football League stadium within Portland that could be used.

"We designed it to be a global entertainment destination", he said, "I think it's among, if not the best place to view soccer in the world now".

The socks are red and Montopoli wore them when Canada won the right to host the 2015 Women's World Cup as well as the 2012 and 2016 women's Olympic bronze-medal matches.

Proposal to split California into 3 states qualifies for November ballot
If the unlikely plan is successful, it would be the first time an existing US state split since West Virginia was created in 1863. A controversial plan to split the Golden State into three separate states qualified for the November 6th ballot.

"Not to comment really on the US side, but maybe they felt that they wished to go further in some additional letters which they had received from their president", he added.

A total of 23 finalists between the three countries have been selected as possible locations for World Cup games.

China blatantly defying North Korea sanctions: Gordon Chang
The agreement reduces the war risk for any company doing business in Asia. "In the short term, it can likely count this as a win". In actuality, the president said sanctions "will come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor".
