Morocco have made five failed bids to host the World Cup thus far, and proposed using 14 stadiums to host tournament fixtures, with the final to be held in the Grand Stade de Casablanca, a planned 93,000-seater stadium that is scheduled to be completed in 2024. "What matters is tomorrow's game, because a World Cup game is very special and we want to give our best and we shall". "And the boys on the football team made me feel at home".

Reed called Canada a "growing football nation that proudly welcomes people from all over the world". In the end it wasn't enough, and Americans fans can look forward to the return of soccer's greatest event in what can only be seen as a massive boost for the domestic game. FIFA, the world governing body of soccer, now takes over the tournament, working with the three countries.

FIFA's 200-plus member associations selected the united bid of the United States, Canada, and Mexico on Wednesday.
