'¡Gooool!' Canada, Mexico And U.S

'¡Gooool!' Canada, Mexico And U.S

FIFA's 68th Congress decided on Wednesday that the North American countries will host the 23rd World Cup in 2026.

Team Korea arrived at its World Cup base camp in Saint Petersburg, Russia, on Tuesday. Yes, you read that right, forty-eight countries. Now you add in the World Cup, and if we can get the men's national team going, which it looks like we are.

The 57-year-old also took issue with Canada and the US, recalling a proposal ahead of the American-hosted 1994 World Cup from then-FIFA president Joao Havelange that would have split games into quarters to allow for more television commercials. "USA, Mexico, and Canada, Liberia stands by you".

They are the most compelling reasons why we would be the best hosts.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that England could also be bidding for the 2030 tournament - a bid that could involve member nations of the United Kingdom.

"My dream is to someday compete in the World Cup, maybe even in my home town of Edmonton". And the current event in the once and maybe future G-8 nation of Russian Federation? In many cases, the emphasis on building specialized stadiums diverts resources away from development projects that would benefit communities in the long run.

Despite these concerns, the North American contingent is betting on past successes and a well-established sports apparatus to bring in big revenues.

Construction of facilities in North America won't be so expansive - and therefore risky - but there also are questionable decisions like finally making the roof retractable at Stade Olympique in Montreal, at a cost of at least $200 million, 50 years after the stadium hosted the Olympics and two decades after the Expos left town because the building was such a dump.

"For this month the world is united around this tournament", he said.

Lenarduzzi said with the World Cup expanding to 48 teams for the 2026 challenge, there is "no reason" why all three host teams should not be given a place. Now he's hooked on soccer and cheering for Mexico this World Cup.

"What can really be the legacy, whether we host matches or are just involved with this in some other grand scheme, that can make sure that Baltimore and the state of Maryland have maximized the potential of being a part of the World Cup?"
