  • World Cup is awarded to North America

It will also be celebrated in football-crazy Mexico, which hosted the World Cup in 1970 and in 1986 - the tournament remembered for Diego Maradona's "Hand of God" goal. In 2010 it lost out to South Africa, which became the first African host.

The 2018 tournament kicks off in Russian Federation on Thursday and the 2022 World Cup will be hosted by Qatar.

Typically, the host nation gets an automatic berth in the World Cup. It will also be the first tournament to be hosted by three countries, Goal reported.

Putin called Infantino a, "fighter" in hard times for FIFA and praised his commitment in fighting politics in football and corruption as well.

Wednesday's vote, held in Moscow on the eve of this year's tournament, was about much more than just the 2026 host nation.

US President Donald Trump tweeted: "The US, together with Mexico and Canada, just got the World Cup". But that is not carved in stone.

Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton are the Canadian candidate host cities for the men's soccer event. 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. Both bids were of a very high quality and we welcome the fact that the bidding process was both open and transparent.

Canada failed in its lone previous World Cup bid - to host the 1986 tournament after Colombia pulled out as host.

"Arrowhead is a bucket list destination for fans across all sports, and we are confident it would be a tremendous environment for the world's best soccer teams to showcase their talent", Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said in a statement in March, when Kansas City was added to the short list of potential USA host sites. Even if Trump wins re-election, his presidency would end before the 2026 World Cup. North America will host the six-team playoff tournament in November 2025 to decide the last two places in the 48-team lineup.

The North American bid beat competition from Morocco, which was hoping to become just the second African country to host soccer's biggest worldwide tournament.

Davies' parents fled their home in Monrovia, Liberia, to escape a civil war. "And I'm a proud Canadian citizen", said Davies, who was born in a refugee camp when his parents escaped civil war in Liberia.

Putin mentioned this while welcoming delegates from more than 200 countries at the FIFA Congress at Moscow's Expocentre.

Lincoln Financial Field has a track record of hosting matches between worldwide teams, dating back to 2003 when the first competition inside the South Philly stadium was a match between FC Barcelona and Manchester United.
