Chief among those is US President Donald Trump, whose "America First" approach might score well with his electoral base but may have made the United bid's task harder than it could ever have imagined.
The North American bid projected a revenue of $11 billion for Federation Internationale de Football Association, according to a New York Times report.

Foxboro has hosted several worldwide soccer events, including the 1999 and 2003 FIFA Women's World Cups, the 2001 CONCACAF World Cup qualifier between the United States and Jamaica, the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, and the 2016 Copa America Centenario quarterfinal match between Argentina and Venezuela.

"Categorically, nobody", Cordeiro said. If you're in the United States, it's probably because soccer isn't very popular.
The World Cup is due to feature 48 teams and will take place across three countries for the first time.
