US President Donald Trump has commented on the support for the World Cup.

"We will be watching very closely, and any help they can give us in that bid we would appreciate", he said. Last week Trump sent out a message to countries that they better support the US-Mexico-Canada bid and he continued lobbying during a joint news conference with the Nigerian President.

Players will also be able to tackle FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team, seeing new chemistry and dynamic player items allowing them to draft the worldwide squad of their dreams, including some legendary FIFA World Cup ICONS, before setting out to prove themselves against thousands of other teams.

Federation Internationale de Football Association released a statement shortly after the tweet, reminding people that they can not comment on statements about the bidding process. "We can only refer to the FIFA regulations for the selection of the venue for the final competition of the 2026 FIFA World Cup, and in particular to the bid rules of conduct incorporated therein".

However, Trump is hoping to get the support of most African countries to achieve their goal. The Confederations Cup, which serves as a warm-up event for World Cup host nations, would be replaced by the expanded Club World Cup, which would see US$3 billion in revenue guaranteed for each edition by investors.

The new event is due to launch later this year and is created to replace friendly matches in favour of more competitive contests. The US hosted the tournament 24 years ago.

However, assuming he does end up living up to the hype, we already have a helluva "what could have been" situation for him. For the sake of the Browns' long-suffering fans, let's hope that for once-FOR ONCE!-they were actually right.

Infantino wants his 37-member FIFA Council to approve signing the deal before the World Cup opens on June 14 in Russian Federation.

Morocco is looking to become the second country in Africa to host the tournament.

The European League body has opposed FIFA president, Gianni Infantino's controversial plans to introduce two new competitions, which will change the face of global football as fresh details emerged about the scale of his proposals.

Jaimie Fuller, one of the founding members of the New FIFA Now advocacy group, believes Trump may weigh heavily on the North American bid, while cautioning that the vote remains finely balanced.

In recent weeks, at least three countries have announced their support for Morocco.

With strong infrastructure already in place, the North American joint bid has always been as the clear front-runner for what will be the first 48-team World Cup.
