Sepp Blatter endorses Morocco bid over U.S. to host 2026 World Cup

FIFA president Gianni Infantino speaks to ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti about his hopes of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups being able to change any negative perceptions of both Russia and Qatar.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino tells Gab Marcotti the World Cup 'cannot afford' to be decided by an incorrect refereeing decision.

Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter on Thursday endorsed Morocco's bid to host the 2026 World Cup over the joint bid from the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Blatter, who is banned from any role in global football for financial misconduct, issued support for the event to return to Africa, after he pushed for South Africa to host in 2010.

Referencing the joint bid from the North American countries, Blatter tweeted: "World Cup 2026: Co-Hosting rejected by FIFA after 2002 (also applied in 2010...

FIFA lifts ban on public endorsements of 2026 World Cup bids

LONDON -- A ban on voters publicly endorsing any 2026 World Cup bid has been lifted by FIFA in the face of criticism from football officials.

The governing body last month ordered officials not to openly discuss the merits of either the joint Northern American bid, featuring the United States, Canada and Mexico, or the rival bid from Morocco.

It led to Confederation of African Football President Ahmad to express frustration at being restricted from backing his continent's bid.

But FIFA Secretary...

Expectations high for Liga MX clubs in CONCACAF Champions League

Henry Martin has been a revelation with his five goals and two assists for Club America.

Expectations are unsurprisingly high for the Liga MX teams involved in this year's CONCACAF Champions League tournament. Since 2006, no club outside of Mexico's first division has won top honors in the CONCACAF competition. Whether it be in the "Champions Cup" or "Champions League" era, a Liga MX team always seems to finish with the title in hand.

This year, the responsibility of maintaining that streak from 2006 lies in the hands (and feet) of four Liga MX squads: Club America, Chivas, Tijuana...

MEXICO CITY -- Another weekend of action is complete for Mexico's footballers in Europe.

Players like Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and Omar Govea didn't see action. Hernandez didn't see playing time because West Ham had the weekend off, while Govea was sent off last weekend, which prevented him to take part in Royal Excel Mouscron's 2-2 draw against Waasland-Beveren. This past week several of Mexico's footballers saw action in Champions League and Europa League play, but none were able to celebrate...

Mexico's Rafa Marquez, 39, still targeting World Cup amid legal issues

Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez recap Mexico's first friendly of 2018, discuss who's on track to make Osorio's World Cup squad and reflect on Jonathan Gonzalez's debut.

Mexico defender Rafa Marquez is not giving up on matching his countryman Antonio Carabajal and Germany's Lothar Matthaus by appearing at five World Cups.

Marquez featured for Mexico at last summer's Confederations Cup and in World Cup qualification for Russia 2018, but was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department on Aug. 9 for links to a drug trafficking organization -- which he denied -- and immediately put his career on hold to fight the charges.

Marquez returned to training in September and...
