Where to watch the World Cup in Los Angeles

Russia's national football team

Mexico will host only 10 matches of the 80 to be played in the expanded tournament with matches played at the historic Estadio Azteca in Mexico City and attractive, modern facilities in Monterrey's Estadio BBVA Bancomer and Chivas de Guadalajara's Estadio Akron.

Future host countries are preparing for the costs too.

The U.S. men's national team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, but American soccer just received a massive boost: On the eve of the sport's biggest spectacle, FIFA members voted to award the 2026 World Cup jointly to the United States, Mexico and Canada.

His World Cup highlight was undoubtedly 2010 when Uruguay finished fourth, inspired by Diego Forlan who was joint top scorer (his strike against Germany in the third-place play-off was selected as goal of the tournament) and awarded the Golden Ball, officially recognising him as the tournament's best player. Canada has never previously hosted World Cup matches. Canada and Mexico also served as a key counterbalance to the United States from a political perspective. "It is a nice message".

"FIFA was clinically dead as an organization", Infantino said, reflecting on his election in 2016 before announcing plans to another four-year term in 2019.

Previous hosts had been decided by the FIFA Executive committee, now known as the FIFA Council.

The 27-year-old forward - a Europa League victor with Atletico in 2017-18 after scoring 29 goals in all competitions - has a reported €100million release clause.

In an unexpected late intervention after presentations on Wednesday, FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura gave the North American bid one final push before the ballot when she summarized the review task force's verdict that saw Morocco fare so poorly.

"They saw themselves in us", said U.S. Soccer president Carlos Cordeiro, citing voters in Scandinavia, western Europe, southeast Asia and South America.

The battle over who would host the tournament had been dogged by concerns that the vote could become a referendum on Trump's popularity.

But from Tuesday forward, the countries aim to shelve their disagreements and present a united front, at least when it comes to co-hosting the world's most-watched single-sport event.

There is also a chance to send an eighth team via an inter-continental playoff.

The 2026 World Cup will be the first to host 48 teams, a significant increase from the 32 that now participate.
