Banned former Federation Internationale de Football Association president Sepp Blatter to attend World Cup in Russia

The 2022 tournament will be hosted by Qatar while the 2018 edition kicks off in Moscow on Thursday when Russian Federation play Saudi Arabia.

In the unlikely event that the Congress decides not to choose either of the two candidates, FIFA will then launch a fresh procedure by inviting all interested Member Associations (outside the four already involved) in the second phase.Styled the "United Bid", the candidacy of USA-Canada-Mexico says it potentially has 23 host cities, with 17 of these located in the USA.

US President Donald Trump and leaders of other states will be welcome guests at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday. The North American bid won 134 to 65, according to ESPN FC.

"Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2026", Carlos Cordiero, president of the US Soccer Federation told Congress. "Football today is the only victor".

Speaking on Trump's possible visit for the World Cup, Peskov said "for this there is even no need for North America to win". The U.S. proposed to host 60 out of the 80 matches, leaving Canada and Mexico with 10 fixtures each.

NBA coach of the year Casey picked as Pistons coach
Despite missing the playoffs, Detroit traded for Blake Griffin and have a strong tandem of him and centre Andre Drummond. Prior to his appointment with Toronto, he served as head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2005-07.

FIFA World Cup™ Trophy Tour by Coca-Cola finished in Moscow after a Tour across Russia and the globe just a few days before the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ kicks off at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

A successful North American bid would likely also give the Canadian national team an automatic berth into the 2026 tournament.

Qatar, who will host in 4 years' time, will mark the first time the tournament is played during winter months because of the nation's high temperatures during summertime.
