Canada's sole World Cup appearance was in 1986 in Mexico, where they did not score a goal, losing to France, Hungry and the Soviet Union in the group stage.

Morocco, which has now lost five bid campaigns, was classy in defeat - congratulating the North American winners.

In the end, the vote swung North America's way by a comfortable margin.

The FIFA Congress held its annual meeting the day before the start of the World Cup to vote on whether the US -led bid or the Morocco bid will get to host the soccer tournament. Canadian officials have already said that there is a movement to stage games in all three countries on the tournament's opening day, should the so-called United bid carry the day.

Russian Federation built on its reputation for lavish spending on sporting events, investing billions of dollars into preparations for the 2018 World Cup, the worldwide soccer tournament that will feature 32 teams playing in 11 cities across the country this month.

Three countries from Canada and three countries from Mexico were also submitted, leaving the United States with the bulk of the hosting duty - with 17 cities submitted in the longlist.

Every one of FIFA's 200-plus members holds a single vote, and regions tend to vote in blocks.

The "United Bid" calls for the U.S.to host 60 matches, including all games from the quarter-finals through to the final.

Seven members recused their voting rights - Guam, Kenyan, the US Virgin Islands football associations, and the bidders.

But with the tournament expanding from 32 to 48 teams in 2026, tripling the hosts would not cause as many ripples.

Monterrey, Guadalajara and Mexico City are up for consideration in Mexico, while Montreal, Toronto and Edmonton are the Canadian cities that have been proposed.

"The decision to host World Cup 2026 in Canada, Mexico and the United States is a testament to our three nations coming together for the United Bid, and a monumental step in our collective mission to further advance the game of soccer in North America", read a statement from Major League Soccer.

How many teams are participating in the 2026 World Cup?

. Hosting rights for previous World Cups had been awarded by what was then a 24-person FIFA Executive Committee.

In 2010, the USA was a finalist to host the 2020 World Cup but lost to Qatar in a vote that was later discredited - but not reversed - because of widespread corruption in FIFA's ranks.

But there is no more unpredictable entity in global sport than soccer's governing body, even as it loudly claims to have cleaned up its act after being engulfed in financial scandal in recent times. Leaders of the Morocco bid said they expected an African tournament to generate $5 billion in revenue.

The evaluation report also offers a "technical scoring" of the two bids, with Morocco getting 274.9 out of 500, compared to the United bid's 402.8 total.
