Morocco was counting on the strong support of African countries but it seems the ten nations defied the continental solidarity.
South Africa is among ten African nations that refused to vote for Morocco to host 2026 World Cup.

Others are Guinea, Liberia, Benin, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique and Namibia. The 2026 tournament will be held in United States, Canada and Mexico after their joint bid beat that of Morocco on Wednesday.

Morocco was counting on the strong support of African countries but it seems the ten nations defied the continental solidarity and voted otherwise. The North American bid earned a total of 134 votes, while Morocco garnered 65.

It marks the first time the World Cup will be held in more than one country since 2002, when South Korea and Japan shared hosting duties.

Three countries have never shared the duties before. The US, however, hosted the country on its own merit in 1994, while Mexico have twice before organised the tournament, in 1970 and in 1986.

Morocco refused to host African Cup of National because they feared Ebola and someone else has to do that at the last minute. Now you want to host World Cup. Africa will never give it to you.

Ama when Morocco wanted to join the European Union because they were wealthier than Spain and Portugal, did they consider themselves as Africans? Talk is cheap, that fact that you live in the US of A does not men you are a white person. you are still talking like the black man you are trying to disassociate yourself with.

Even if all African countries votted for Morroco, America was still going to win, America won the support of all other continents. South Africa mentioned they were not going to vote Morroco because they comepted against them in their bid to host the 2010 world cup. Liberia depends on USA for their daily bread and they can't deny them a vote.

Cool it guys! Supposing the 10 African countries did vote for Morocco, look at the tally .It still wound n't have made a difference. The Morocco bid was dead from the start because FIFA itself wanted the 3 big nations to host the tournament and it's all because of money.FIFA is like a giant octopus full of corruption and with many tentacles all over just as corrupt.
