Russian president Vladimir Putin promises 'unforgettable and vibrant' World Cup

World soccer's governing body, FIFA, selected Canada, Mexico and the United States to host the 2026 World Cup.

The vote took place after 15 minute presentations by each bidder.

The biggest event Russian Federation has hosted since Soviet times, when the United States and others boycotted the 1980 Moscow Olympics over the invasion of Afghanistan, will put a spotlight on how Russian Federation has, since the chaotic collapse of Communism, resurrected its economy and a tight social order under the former KGB agent.

Chief among those is US President Donald Trump, whose "America First" approach might score well with his electoral base but may have made the United bid's task harder than it could ever have imagined. One such policy was a ban on travel from six majority-Muslim countries for security reasons.

Morocco have bid five times now and they have been overlooked each time.

He added, "People have a soft spot for Mexico, especially looking at Mexico as a little bit under-developed and giving them a chance".

So Morocco concentrated its pitch on the country's undisputed passion for football, the notion that Africa deserves another World Cup after South Africa 2010, its far more compact offering and Euro-friendly time zone. There will be three hubs in Mexico, three in Canada, and sixteen in the States, all home to National Football League teams.

While Portland is known for its tremendous support of soccer, the city doesn't have a stadium that would support the attendance numbers expected for a World Cup game.

North American officials have promised to deliver $14 billion in revenue from the event.

We've got our top talent on hand from England, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Australia and Africa - many of whom will be based out in Russian Federation for the tournament - to analyse each and every one of the 64 matches. 1986 and 1994, whereas Canada hosted the Women's World Cup in 2015.

And the hosts struck after 12 minutes when they forced another corner which was half-cleared and, when Roman Zobnin crossed, Gazinsky headed home the tournament's opening goal.
