Morocco on Wednesday congratulated the United States, Canada and Mexico after they defeated the North African kingdom's bid to host the 2026 World Cup.

"At the 68th congress of @FIFAcom, member countries voted in favour of North America," to host the tournament, Morocco's committee for the 2026 games said on Twitter.

"#Maroc2026 congratulates @United2026 on their victory."

The vote at FIFA's annual congress, held this year in Moscow, came a day before the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
