Yeah I've got rid of my Spanish players from my Fantasy League team. They will now win the trophy.

Trump will be delighted :lol:

Although hopefully he'll be dead by then.

Spain :slol:

As for 2026, bit odd having 3 countries - do they all automatically qualify? Would've been nice if it'd just been one country, or maybe a joint US-Mexico or US-Canada. 3x the bribes though, so every cloud...

A bit annoying that the USA are getting a second world cup so soon. For all FIFA say they want to take the world cup to new places, they opted against Morocco for some reason. Might be because it was promosing double the £4bn profit the African bid cited. America will have had two in my lifetime now.

It'll be Mexico's third since 1970 too, albeit they got one when Colombia pulled out.

I'm a little bitter as it just seems to unfairly pass England by. We've had one Euros and one WC. In contrast, since we've held the WC, France have had three Euros and one WC. The last one, Platini basically admitted was rigged to give it to France while he was UEFA President.

There are noises that an England bid would be welcomed for 2030. But no doubt there'll be a bid that lines FIFA's pockets a little bit more.

Madness. Two continents and 6-hour flights for supporters.

No host countries anymore then, just host continents?

Mexico and the USA could easily host by themselves, they both have plenty of stadiums. I am not sure how prepared Canada would be, but I wouldn’t think it was beyond them to host individually.

Still, it will be amusing to watch people having to cross over Trump’s wall.

Isn't Central America a continent?

Edit: Sorry, brain stopped working. Still, it's an entire continent.

It will have been 32 years since the US hosted a tournament to be fair and purely from a financial perspective, it’s the perfect time to try and increase the “soccer” brand there as it is becoming more popular.

It was a disgrace that England didn’t get 2018 - the infrastructure and stadia were the best of any of the bidders, but we now know that it was a corrupt process anyway.

But apart from that, Blue Eyes was spot on, right?

I haven’t ever lost an international match that I have played in, but I wouldn’t fancy my chances either.
