Jose Mourinho predicts World Cup quarter-final heartache for England against Brazil

Who is bidding for the 2026 World Cup and when will the host nation be decided

The 2026 tournament will be the first expanded tournament featuring 48 teams, up from the current 32-team tournament, which begins in Russian Federation on Thursday.

The North American bid collected 134 votes to the 65 for Morocco, which has now failed in five bids to host a World Cup.

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.

Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal are the three Canadian cities designated to possibly host games in the 2026 tournament, which is expanding to include 48 countries, up from the current 32-team format. All soccer venues are expected to be ready by the time the 2026 World Cup rolls around.

If the united North American bid is successful, it would be the first time Canada will partake in hosting the men's World Cup tournament.

England make low-key arrival in Russian Federation with Marcus Rashford's injury concern
Obviously I understand you have got the Champions League and Premier League - so many big competitions - and it is every season. As such, Southgate has been reluctant to be drawn into talking about England's chances of winning the competition.

The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in the 11 above-mentioned cities across Russian Federation.

The 2026 tournament will return to the North American region 32 years after that USA -hosted edition.

The US hosted the World Cup previously in 1994 while Mexico hosted it in 1970 and 1986. Chinese sponsors have filled the gaps left after a number of long-term Fifa backers, including Johnson & Johnson, Castrol and Continental, ended their association with soccer's global governing body in the wake of the corruption scandal in May 2015.

The Egyptian national team have continued their preparations in their training camp in Grozny, Russia ahead of their opening game against Uruguay on June 15 in the 2018 World Cup's Group A.
