Morocco King Mohammed VI instructs country to bid for 2030 world cup

Canada has never been a host. The North African country claimed 33 per cent of the vote. If you decide to side with the public, only one of these two countries has a real shot at scoring the World Cup trophy in 2018.

As The Guardian reports, the joint application of the North American countries received 134 votes. Thank you for entrusting us with this privilege.

The 57-year-old also took issue with Canada and the USA, recalling a proposal ahead of the American-hosted 1994 World Cup from then-FIFA president Joao Havelange that would have split games into quarters to allow for more television commercials. For the next month or so, for lovers of the Beautiful Game, the world will appear to be a happier, perhaps kinder, place. Football today is the only victor.

England is the only team from the United Kingdom to qualify for the finals where they meet Belgium, Panama and Tunisia.

Morocco have bid five times now and they have been overlooked each time. The 2018 tournament, featuring 32 countries - but not the United States, Italy or the Netherlands to name three shocking absences - begins Thursday in Russian Federation.

- They have won the World Cup four times and have reached at least the semi-finals in every tournament since 2002.

"We are all united in football, the attractive game transcends borders and cultures".

This comes just a day after Morocco confirmed that they will bid for the 2030 World Cup after losing out in the race to host the 2026 competition. The Football Association has not hosted the tournament since 1966, having failed in bids for 1990, 2006 and 2018.

Why Did The "United" Bid Win? .

This could one of the last World Cups with 32 countries as Federation Internationale de Football Association has made a decision to expand to 48 for the 2026 edition (which will be hosted by the USA, Canada and Mexico). Both teams are very evenly matched, but the difference will be the experience that both teams have.
