After considering separate bids for the 2026 World Cup, the federations that govern soccer in Mexico, Canada and the United States made a decision to launch a cooperative effort to host the tournament in April 2017.

"The United bid was strong and if it was just the United States, I think Morocco would have beaten them", said Cameroon federation official Kevin Njomo, whose country voted for Morocco.

"I would like to thank the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, His Majesty the King, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, and my good friend His Excellency Turki Al-Sheikh for your tremendous support of the United bid", said Cordeiro.

Canada, meanwhile, did not even make it that far, finishing third behind Mexico and Honduras in the fourth round.

Russians will be hoping Mourinho is proved right, and that the World Cup party starts with a welcome win for the hosts.

The North American countries won with 134 votes, or 67 percent, against an upstart campaign from Morocco, which garnered 65 votes, in the Wednesday morning vote in Moscow. Most national teams prefer to establish their pre-World Cup training compounds away from their first-round group-game cities.

Miami and Orlando are among the 23 cities in the running to host matches, and Hard Rock Stadium - built for soccer and known as a host to sold-out global matches - is expected to be selected.

Montopoli, speaking for the Canadian portion of the bid, said only that they had the government guarantees they had required.

Nashville has recently hosted World Cup Qualifying matches and CONCACAF Gold Cup matches.
