A tweet by US President Donald Trump warning countries who vote against a united North America bid for the World Cup 2026 has not gone down well with football enthusiasts and especially for Morocco, the only North African nation bidding to host the event.

Voting blocks from Africa are sure to vote for Morocco, including the French football federation which has previously said it will cast its vote for the country.
