Will Leitch: This has been the worst men’s World Cup in memory. Everything surrounding this World Cup has been a disaster. The human rights abuses of the Qatari government, the stifling of political speech are inexcusable. Having the World Cup is like having the Super Bowl in May. The 2026 men’s World Cup will be hosted by the United States, Mexico and Canada.
The tournament will be held in June and July again, which will not disrupt the top European leagues. The field will grow from 32 to 48 teams, which could cause some competitive issues.
