And perhaps most persuasive, the North American bid promised Federation Internationale de Football Association a record $11 billion in profit, almost double the $6.6 billion that governing body expects to earn in the 2022 event in Qatar and more than double the US$5 billion estimated by Morocco.

The public vote took place in Moscow, where the 2018 soccer championship begins on Thursday.

City host the first of the 2018/19 clashes, welcoming United to the Etihad Stadium on 10 November and our visit to Old Trafford takes place on 16 March.

Russian Federation coach Stansilav Cherchesov was spot-on with his substitutions in the opening match of their home World Cup on Thursday as Denis Cheryshev scored a brace and Artem Dzyuba also found the net off the bench in a stunning 5-0 triumph over Saudi Arabia.

Nashville was included in the 23 cities involved in the bid, meaning a World Cup game could be played in Music City.

"They have good squads but good squads do not always make good teams", he said. Morocco would have needed to build nine stadiums and renovate five others. Mexico last held the event in 1986, while the USA held the World Cup in 1994.

Russian Federation was among those to switch from backing Morocco to the North American effort at the last minute.

Canada, Mexico, and the United States will now jointly manage preparations for the massive events until Federation Internationale de Football Association establishes their operations to manage the competition. "It is a nice message".

Bin Salman appeared to be more light-hearted about the game, stating that any result would actually contribute to relations between the two countries.

The bribery scandal put the governing body on the brink, Infantino told the congress ahead of Wednesday's vote.

"We were tighter, more disciplined, more mature", he said.

The North America bid also had to overcome concerns about the impact of policies from the Trump administration, including attempts to implement a ban on travel by residents of six majority-Muslim countries.

Elsewhere, Manchester United host Leicester City, Tottenham head to Newcastle United, Liverpool play West Ham at Anfield and Huddersfield Town host Chelsea.

As you can see from the table below, only Wolves are deemed to have a tougher start than Newcastle United.
