Vancouver not among Canadian cities in line to host 2026 World Cup

"As far as the manner in which they've conducted the recent bid which led to United States and Canada and Mexico being awarded the 2026 World Cup, I think that sends out a really strong signal that Federation Internationale de Football Association has changed". The administrator of Goan origin was ably assisted by another NRI, Allahabad-born Sunil Gulati, former president of US Soccer and a hugely influential member of the all-powerful FIFA Council. India, not surprisingly, voted for United 2026.

The last time the USA hosted the World Cup was in 1994, with Brazil winning the tournament at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

If the united North American bid is successful, it would be the first time Canada will partake in hosting the men's World Cup tournament.

Earlier, US Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro has said his bid would generate $14bn in revenue and make an $11bn profit for Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi expressed his disappointment that Vancouver will not be participating in the World Cup.

Trump claims, preposterously, that parents of Korean War veterans came up to him during the 2016 campaign and said, "when you can, we'd love our son to be brought back home - you know, the remains".

This is the first World Cup since 2006 to be hosted in Europe.

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

But fear not, for that endurance test was followed in 1990 by one of the most astonishing games in World Cup history, Cameroon's 1-0 victory over holders Argentina at San Siro by virtue of Francois Omam-Biyik's victor and such extraordinary reckless tackling and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm that left several world champions sporting saucer-sized bruises and two Cameroon players with red cards. "So many people asked when I was on the campaign. Categorically, nobody", Cordeiro said.
