With the breakdown of voting results made public, the United bid claimed 134 votes, with 64 giving their support to Morocco and one country voting for neither bid.

"If you stop and appreciate for a second just the vast number of assurances, guarantees that we had to get from all three governments working together, that is a massive undertaking for one nation, let alone three nations", Cordeiro said after the vote by the Congress of world soccer's governing body Federation Internationale de Football Association in Moscow, where the 2018 World Cup kicks off on Thursday.

The loss is Morocco's fifth in a World Cup bidding process after previous tries in 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010.

As it stands now, 60 games will be played in the United States, with Mexico and Canada hosting 10 each. The bid also expects record ticket and hospitality revenue.

President Trump tweeted his congratulations to those involved in winning the right to host the competition.

Portland was not chosen as one of the finalists to host World Cup matches. In the end it wasn't enough, and Americans fans can look forward to the return of soccer's greatest event in what can only be seen as a massive boost for the domestic game.

Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo, reporting from NY, said: "While the official name of the bid is United 2026, the three potential host nations are right now anything but united".

At the end of the trailer , Parker's character turns out to be the key to the pachyderm's flight, telling him, "Here, Dumbo ". It's also a surprising departure for Burton, whose name has become synonymous with a Gothic flair and kabuki-mask faces.

It will mark the first time three countries have shared the planet's most popular sporting event. Stadiums, accommodation and transport were all deemed "high risk" but Morocco said it had plans to spend up to $16 billion to shore up its deficits ahead of the tournament. Where, exactly, the World Cup will be played, and whether all three host nations will automatically qualify for the tournament. Before the vote, some had suggested that a "Trump effect" was harming the United States' chances, saying the president's quarrels internationally were putting off some countries.

Fifa's president, Gianni Infantino, looked opportunistically quick to immediately put himself forward for re-election next year, and he was followed by USA president Donald Trump with a self-congratulatory tweet. All soccer venues are expected to be ready by the time the 2026 World Cup rolls around.

They are the most compelling reasons why we would be the best hosts. "We are all united in football". To counter concerns about severe travel, the bid said teams would be placed in regional clusters.

Since the US first hosted the World Cup in 1994 (Denver wasn't one of the host cities), it has been in France, South Korea and Japan (joint-bid), Germany, South Africa and Brazil, with the Russia World Cup beginning on Thursday.

After the summit, Trump attacked Trudeau as "dishonest" and "weak." and accused him of making false statements around the tariffs.
