North America and Morocco finalists for hosting 2026 World Cup

His goal took him on to 55 from 85 caps and he was proud to move level with Romario as Brazil's third highest scorer, leaving him 22 behind record-holder Pele.

The ceremony will begin half an hour before the game kicks off at 6pm local time (4pm BST).

Over the past ten months, FIFA Legends, 2018 FIFA World Cup ambassadors and prominent figures around the world have provided valuable support with the organisation of the tour.

Federation Internationale de Football Association notes that the new Elo method has been used in other sports for a number of years and is even involved in calculating the women's world rankings, with a specific version (SUM) developed especially to take into account FIFA's considerations.

When the Federation Internationale de Football Association council meets ahead of this year's World Cup tournament held in Russia on Wednesday, the top priority will be deciding between Morocco and a joint North American bid as hosts of the 2026 edition of the World Cup. Shortly after, the team flew to Sochi, its base for the tournament, as those back in their homeland reacted to a win which impressed and boosted expectations of winning an unprecedented sixth world title.

The "Angels" icon will perform to a crowd of 80,000 people at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Thursday, shortly before the opening game between Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia. "We deserved the victory, we played very well", added Barcelona forward Coutinho to the Brazilian FA.

There was much emphasis placed on Neymar absence when an injury ruled the talisman out of the World Cup semi-final in Brazil four years ago, though no one could have predicted what would unfold in Belo Horizonte, as Germany humbled the hosts 7-1 - proving just how crucial Neymar is to this Brazil squad.

Once they touched down, tracksuited Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov was among the first to greet Salah.

On the offensive end, they still have Mario Mandzukic who can change the game's outcome with his goals and he should be the team's main striker for this competition.

"He still feels pain. this type of injury needs a recovery period of three weeks before going back to the field", he said.

That won them the respect and admiration of many and that can carry over to Russian Federation as they attempt to remake their own history. Argentina (9/1), who last won a World Cup in 1986 and have one of the world's best players in Lionel Messi, and Belgium (11/1), whose roster includes Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku among other stars, are considered the tournament's dark horses.

"I must acknowledge the fact that, unfortunately, our team have not achieved big results in recent times", Putin said last week.
