"We'll get the team performing and we'll qualify if we have to", John Herdman told CTV's Your Morning Wednesday, just about an hour after the announcement that the joint bid of Canada, Mexico and the United States had beaten Morocco to host the 48-team tournament.

The US, Mexico and Canada received 134 votes (67 percent) with the Morocco bid earning 65 votes.

Canada will host men's World Cup matches for the first time, while Mexico gets its first taste of the event since staging the entire event in 1986.

As nice as it is to travel and experience new countries, having the tournament come to our own backyard is a chance that simply can not be missed, especially considering it will be held in three separate countries for the first time in the history of the World Cup.

Baltimore and M&T Bank Stadium fared well in FIFA's assessment of potential game venues, and the city is considered the favorite to host the World Cup Team Workshop, which brings together delegations from all 48 competing nations for a pretournament introduction to the World Cup's organization.

"Hosting a FIFA World Cup is an extraordinary honor and privilege", Steven Reed, President of Canada Soccer, said in a statement.

They warned "the amount of new infrastructure required for the Morocco 2026 bid to become reality can not be overstated". "Our vision is of a world of opportunity for our Candidate host cities and for the global football community".

Back in 2010, Vladimir Putin, right, shakes hands with Federation Internationale de Football Association president of the time Sepp Blatter after Russia was announced as the host for the 2018 World Cup.

Vancouver, which hosted the 2015 Women's World Cup final, will not be participating in the 2026 bid.

"We're not missing our own home World Cup".

The United States was the last of the three nations to have hosted a World Cup, last hosting the finals in 1994 which were won by Brazil.

So Morocco concentrated its pitch on the country's undisputed passion for football, the notion that Africa deserves another World Cup after South Africa 2010, its far more compact offering and Euro-friendly time zone.

The VAR will be overseen remotely from a control room in Moscow throughout the tournament and, in a bid to control sweat levels, FIFA is insisting they forgo civilian suits and ties in favour of football shirts and shorts. We've landed a World Cup.

The plan is that Canada and Mexico would each host 10 matches, while 60 matches would be played in the United States.

Three Canadian cities - Edmonton, Montreal, and Toronto - could potentially host matches.

One has to think all three will receive an automatic pass into the tournament. Elsewhere in the region, Philadelphia is also under consideration for the 2026 competition, as are Boston and Cincinnati.

The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15 at 12 stadiums located in the 11 above-mentioned cities across Russian Federation.
