  • US, Mexico and Canada to host 2026 World Cup finals

"Nevertheless, Spain has a greater chance of winning the World Cup because Germany and Brazil may already play against each other in the final 16, while Spain has a simpler programme".

2026 will mark the first time the World Cup will be shared by three host nations, and follows a fraught week for US-Canada relations. Almost half (46%) plan to watch the matches at home by themselves, while 28 percent report they'll be watching at a friend or family member's house.

President Donald Trump said he worked hard on the effort to bring the 2026 World Cup to North America and thanked Robert Kraft, owner of the NFL's New England Patriots and Major League Soccer's New England Revolution. I personally would like to see 1 of 3 teams win.

"There are various teams going in to the tournament with confidence, playing well and with good individuals, as is the case with Brazil, Germany, Spain, France and Belgium, although the latter is not mentioned as much".

In 2022, the matches of the world championship will be held in Qatar.
