United States, Canada and Mexico to jointly host 2026 World Cup

Usually referred to as just the World Cup, the tournament is the biggest sporting competition on the planet. The tournament has been jointly hosted only once before, by Japan and Korea in 2002.

"We congratulate all of those who worked tirelessly to bring the World Cup back to North America and thank the countries that voted for the United Bid, and for their belief in our vision for the future of the sport in our region".

If the United bid was capable of covering three different countries, then maybe Africa should propose a bid with the entire continent.

The figure is 10 percent higher compared to the revenues Federation Internationale de Football Association projected for the tournament, and $1.3 billion more than the earnings generated by the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, documents seen by The New York Times reveal.

"This shouldn't be a geopolitical discussion or decision", U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro said this week, according to the Los Angeles Times. Football today is the only victor.

The final vote came down to Morocco and a joint bid from Mexico, Canada and the United States. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent. Instead, Fifa member nations cast their votes.

The united bid projected it would make a profit of $14 billion, twice what Morocco would have delivered. Canada has never hosted a men's World Cup, though it was the site of the 2015 Women's World Cup.

The final will be held at MetLife Stadium which is the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL).

Denver is one of approximately 23 potential host cities under consideration, although the announcement of host cities may not be made until 2021.

This new format will have 16 more teams, and 16 more games to enjoy taking the total from 64 to 80 games.

From that point on, it is knockout stages.

Both Shilton and Barthez have 10 World Cup clean sheets apiece and, given he's kept opposition sides out seven times in his last two tournaments, it's not inconceivable for Neuer to equal this record if he's returned from injury in time.
