2026 World Cup hosting vote postponed three years until 2020

During his visit to Seoul, South Korea FIFA president Gianni Infantino shared his new vision for FIFA.

The hosts of the 2026 World Cup will be decided in May 2020, three years later than originally scheduled because of the corruption scandals that have engulfed FIFA.

In an attempt to avoid the recriminations that dogged the 2010 decision to give the 2018 World Cup to Russia and 2022 tournament to Qatar, world football's governing body will try a four-phase approach for 2026.

This will effectively be a year of consultation and then three years of "bid preparation" and evaluation, but a decision on...

AFC World Cup qualifying on mind of new Maldives' coach Ricki Herbert

Herbert took over as Maldives coach in September, midway through their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Playing and coaching for New Zealand at different World Cups -- Spain 1982 and South Africa 2010 -- and now starting a new role with the Maldives national team provide evidence of what can be possible in football, no matter where you are from.

As a central defender, I appeared in all three games in New Zealand's first World Cup finals' appearance more than three decades ago, which would help me earn a dream move to Wolverhampton Wanderers in England.

But I am probably best known for coaching the...

New Zealand boss Hudson urges FFA to keep Wellington in the A-League

New Zealand national team manager is confident that the team is moving in the right direction.

It can't be easy being coach of New Zealand's football team when there is not much of a league to speak of, little competitive action to be had and you are also home to some of the top teams on the planet -- of other sporting codes.

The Black Caps reached the cricket World Cup final in March and just a few weeks ago the All Blacks lifted the Rugby World Cup in London. The national football team coach Anthony Hudson is not letting that get him down, however, just the opposite.
