It was quickly dubbed the "NAFTA World Cup" on social media, but soccer fans and observers could not help seeing Wednesday's news that the United States, Mexico and Canada will jointly host the 2026 World Cup through the lens of border walls, tariffs and Trump.
"Canada, Mexico, and the United States are ready to welcome the world to North America and serve as stewards of the largest FIFA World Cup in history".
Mexico's previous World Cups are widely regarded as two of the best ever, instantly evoking the magic of Pele and the 1970 Brazil team and the genius of Diego Maradona in the 1986 tournament won by Argentina. For instance, Los Angeles may host the USA opener, Dallas is mentioned as a candidate to host the semifinals, while the final match is expected to take place in Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, just outside of New York City.
Herdman, whose team is now tied with Lebanon at No. 79 in the world rankings, has yet to hear whether the three co-hosts will secure automatic qualification as is the norm. The vote marks the first time that Federation Internationale de Football Association has accepted a three-nation bid for the soccer championship.

Each Horizon title has been set within a different country or region and Forza Horizon 4 will take drivers to Britain. Which just leaves Microsoft's E3 2018 show : its entire conference was largely a mission statement for the future.
"My dream is to some day compete in the World Cup - maybe, even in my hometown of Edmonton", said the 17-year-old, who is on the Canadian men's national soccer team.
During the weeks before the 2014 World Cup, the United States played Nigeria before a regional record crowd of 52,033 at EverBank Field. Morocco's bid garnered a score of 2.7, along with a stark warning from the inspection team that "the amount of new infrastructure required for the Morocco 2026 bid to become reality can not be overstated". "We'll have discussions with U.S. Soccer about what happens next". "And the US-Canadian relationship right now is rocky - with both sides threatening a trade war", he said.
The loss is Morocco's fifth in a World Cup bidding process after previous tries in 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010. "This is not geopolitics". The United States is likely to have 10 cities selected to host games, while Mexico and Canada are expected to each have three.
