"We will not be flawless but we are looking for uniformity and consistency - but it can not be 100 per cent", said Massimo Busacca, FIFA's head of refereeing. We are ready made.

They are the most compelling reasons why we would be the best hosts. There was no professional league, numerous national team players came from New Jersey and California, watching live professional games from Europe was almost impossible, and the World Cup ratings from 1990 in Italy were miniscule.

The city and federal government are already on board with funding the matches.

The majority of the 80 matches in the North American bid would be played in the United States, who hosted the 1994 FIFA World Cup. Having boarded a plane to Moscow in the immediate aftermath of a dominant one goal, three assist performance for the Whitecaps, Davies added "pitchman" to his growing resumé on Wednesday, and with an expected move to Europe coming in January, Davies, should he live up to his sky-high potential, will be spreading the word about Canadian soccer in the years leading up to what could be a major coming-out party in the Great White North.
