Every goal scored from every game at Russian Federation 2018

FIFA World Cup 2018 Teams gear up for the big event in Russia

A few hours ago, I went down to the stadium, which can hold over 80-thousand spectators, ... and ticket holders for the opening match were crowding in already for the World Cup's opening ceremony.

The 2018 World Cup kicks off in a matter of hours with the host nation, Russia, taking on Saudi Arabia. Carlos Codeiro had said the bid would generate $14 billion (£10.3) in revenue and also $11 billion (£8.2) in profit for Federation Internationale de Football Association. The others would then be split between Canada and Mexico. Federation Internationale de Football Association will also be making the final selection of host cities for the 2026 competition from the 23 candidates proposed in the United Bid.

Morocco appeared too hazardous as a potential host when all 14 venues had to be built or renovated as part of a $16 billion investment in new infrastructure.

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

Saudi Arabia goalkeeper Abdullah Almuaiouf is beaten by a free kick from Russia's Alexander Golovin in extra-time of their World Cup opener.

Russian Federation is grappling with Western sanctions imposed after its seizure of Crimea from Ukraine four years ago, but talking of a love of football uniting the planet "as one team", Putin said: "In this unity, over which no powers reign, in which there are no differences of language, of ideology or of faith, lies the great power of football, and of all sport". "It is a nice message".

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

United Bid Selected to Host the 2026 FIFA World Cup
The 2026 tournament will be the first hosted by multiple countries since the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. Expect it to add a World Cup semifinal to its resume.

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

Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal are the three Canadian cities designated to possibly host games in the 2026 tournament, which is expanding to include 48 countries, up from the current 32-team format.

A successful North American bid would likely also give the Canadian national team an automatic berth into the 2026 tournament.

The last time the USA hosted the World Cup was in 1994, with Brazil winning the tournament at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

There is also a chance to send an eighth team via an inter-continental playoff.

Number 70 Russian Federation and 67 Saudi Arabia kicked off the tournament as the lowest-ranked of all 32 teams after a short opening ceremony with Robbie Williams as headliner on an overcast evening.
