Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup opening ceremony underway in Moscow

Achilles the cat lies on a table after attempting to predict the result of the opening match of the FIFA World Cup 2018

The winning bid, which should feature 60 out of 80 Games in the USA, will mark the return of football's showpiece event to North American soil for the first time since 1994.

Edmonton's hopes of becoming a host city for the 2026 FIFA World Cup rest on a final vote Wednesday morning in Moscow. Football today is the only victor.

He went on to wish "an unforgettable experience" to the thousands of fans traveling to Russian Federation for the football showpiece, closing with the line: "welcome to Russian Federation." .

They even highlighted restrictions on weapons in Morocco in an apparent dig at gun crime in the United States and Mexico.

The fact that two of the world's best players, Portuguese centre-forward Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentine playmaker Lionel Messi have not yet won the cup for their respective countries - despite the duo dominating the lovely game virtually unopposed - has captured the minds of spectators from around the world. The others would then be split between Canada and Mexico. Federation Internationale de Football Association will also be making the final selection of host cities for the 2026 competition from the 23 candidates proposed in the United Bid.

Fire evacuations lifted in San Juan Co. Wednesday
Fire crews finally have a handle on the Ute Park blaze burning in northern New Mexico, which has burned more than 57 square miles. As of Tuesday, there were no known structures that were burned or destroyed by the fire and no known injuries or fatalities.

To do so would have invited ridicule when it needed to build or renovate the 14 stadiums it wants to use - a task FIFA's technical report said "cannot be overstated".

The 2026 tournament will look very different than it due to its expansion.

There will not be many occasions when Saudi Arabia's players have enjoyed 62 per cent of the possession on the home turf of a European opponent and yet for much of the first half, as the world watched Russian Federation kick-off its own tournament, the team in green had the ball.

This new format will have 16 more teams, and 16 more games to enjoy taking the total from 64 to 80 games. Another three are cities that will have expansion teams coming into MLS.

From that point on, it is knockout stages.

There are few cliches that hold more truth than a World Cup needing a successful host, and Russian Federation can now throw itself into this tournament in the hope and belief that Cherchesov's team can progress to the knockout stages.
