The States famously hosted the world’s biggest football tournament back in 1994, and their facilities have come a long way since then, as has the quality of their own national team.

Webb believes the US is in great shape to host the World Cup, and says they should be awarded the competition after missing out on hosting it in 2022.

“It [football] is booming in North America, in the US,” he said. “Definitely we’ve had expressions publicly from Mexico, from Canada and of course from the US.

“When you look at the infrastructure that’s in the US, in North America, I believe there’s no infrastructure like this in the world, in any parts of the world. I believe the US could host the World Cup next year.”
