  • Sure: "Now that the United States-led bid to bring the 2026 World Cup to North America is well established as the prohibitive favorite, bid organizers are making plans to keep on rolling.The next big step? A trip to the White House.With persistent questions about how President Trump's proposed border wall might affect a partnership between U.S. Soccer and the Mexican federation, as well as the need to show FIFA full government support, leaders of the bid are hoping to arrange a meeting -- and photo opportunity -- with the president within the next month or two, officials with knowledge of the plans told ESPN."
