Diego Maradona expressed some shocking reasons why the United States, Mexico and Canada shouldn't be hosting the 2026 World Cup. https://t.co/z7pBflikQE— ESPN FC (@ESPNFC) June 15, 2018
• On Wednesday FIFA announced that the 2026 World Cup would be split between the three North American countries: Sixty games will be in the United States and ten games each in Canada and Mexico, respectively.
• This would make Mexico the first country to host the World Cup three times. They last hosted in 1970 and 1986. The US last hosted in 1994 and this will be Canada's first time hosting.
• Retired Argentinian futbol player Diego Maradona however does not agree with the decision saying: “I don't like it. Mexico doesn't deserve it. The Mexicans come up against Brazil or Germany... and 'boom,' they're out.”
• He goes on to state that North America lacks passion. “The Canadians may be good skiers, and the Americans wanted to have four periods of 25 [minutes] for the advertising.”
