They even highlighted restrictions on weapons in Morocco in an apparent dig at gun crime in the United States and Mexico. "Congratulations - a great deal of hard work!"

It followed a campaign centered around record crowds, existing venues and a forecast revenue of $14.3 billion (£10.6 billion/€12.1 billion). That means the 31-member Caribbean federation has three times the voting power of South America, which includes soccer powers Brazil and Argentina.

Russian President Vladimir Putin officially opened the World Cup on Thursday at a ceremony in Moscow s 80,000-seat Luzhniki Stadium.

Federation Internationale de Football Association will also be making the final selection of host cities for the 2026 competition from the 23 candidates proposed in the United Bid.

The 87,000-capacity MetLife Stadium outside NY - home of the NFL's Giants and Jets - is proposed for the final. Boston is one of 23 cities in contention to host matches.

From that point on, it is knockout stages.

To culminate the 2018 FIFA World Cup™, a block party is planned on Church Street, in front of Lion's Pride, for the Final match on Sunday, July 15, at 11 a.m. ET.
