FIFA President Gianni Infantino meets with Donald Trump

On Tuesday, two months after North America won the rights to host the next global soccer tournament in 2026, he received something even better - a stack of red cards.

The US leader said that when the US Soccer Federation was trying to secure the 2026 World Cup, they telephoned him "constantly, to try to get me to come onboard, but it only took one call because when I heard 'World Cup, ' I wanted to do it". "The yellow card is a warning, and when you want to kick out someone (shows the red card).so this could be useful, I don't know".
