During last year’s FIFA World Cup, Lionel Messi and his Argentine teammates faced off against Kylian Mbappé and the powerful French team, resulting in a nail-biting penalty shootout that ended in victory for Messi’s squad.
The 2026 World Cup is set to unfold across North America, with matches spanning the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
Looking even further ahead, FIFA has revealed plans for the 2030 World Cup, aiming to encompass an unprecedented three host continents and six host nations.
This tournament will kick off in Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay before making its way to Spain, Portugal, and Morocco.
All six host countries will automatically qualify for the event.
While World Cup enthusiasts have raised concerns about logistical challenges and environmental impacts, there is a recognition that FIFA is potentially paving the way for Saudi Arabia to host the 2034 edition.
Before finalizing these plans, a formal approval process involving all 211 member federations will take place next year.
However, it is anticipated that there will be minimal resistance to the proposal.
