The race to host one of the biggest sporting events on the planet concludes Wednesday in Moscow as the soccer world’s governing body will be voting to select a host for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

As with anything and everything else، the United States looked to be in a good position...and then Donald Trump started tweeting.

The U.S. had presented a joint bid with Canada and Mexico (that wall is going to make travelling a nightmare for supporters) and were clear favourites to land the 2026 competition، but they are now being challenged by Morocco.

Bidding to host the World Cup for a fifth time، Morocco are adamant that an Africa country are deserving of another tournament after South Africa's hosting of the event in 2010. Do they have vuvuzelas in North Africa?

The FIFA Congress will vote on who should host the 'biggest World Cup ever' later today with experts already predicting it as too close to call. A failure to go with either bid will open up the opportunity for further bids elsewhere. It's already proving to be more exciting than Russia v Saudi Arabia tomorrow.
