If the US can't host it on its own then nobody can. 48 teams will require a lot of stadia and infrastructure.

No one has said the Us couldn’t host it on their own.

Of course they could. They could host two world cups at the same time if they wanted.

USA and Mexico hosted it before so they proved they can stage it on their own. I'd say all 3 is capable of staging it on their own, so why the need for a triple bid?

Two hosts too many means 2 less qualifying spots. But like I said, there'll be hundreds of teams in it by then so even Ireland should qualify.

You seriously think Mexico are capable of hosting a modern WC on its own?

:o

Are you Donald Trump? They've already held two. No borr to them... sure Brazil held the last one

Seriously?

Syf have you ever been to Mexico?? They are more than qualified to host it. I agree that it didn't need 3 hosts, but it will bring a novelty to proceedings anyway. Be a a nice trip if the Repiblic can qualify.

Mexico are in no way qualified to host a WC. And using Brazil, with the incredible debt they incurred trying to get aging stadia up to standard among other white elephant infrastructure projects while the poor continued to suffer as proof of the contrary shows a serious lack of perspective.
South Africa and Russia would be further behind than Mexico and they both won the right to hold the World Cup.

From a football purists POV, hope it's a Belgium/Argentina final.

I see the Russians have taken their wheatabix/steroids. 5-0 against the Saudis.
