Morocco has surprised everyone with its last minute bid to organise the 2026 World Cup.

The football's biggest showpiece was hosted on the African continent only once - in 2010 when South Africa held the event.

The man in charge of African football, Ahmad Ahmad, has given the country his full backing.

"This is our hope and our dream, because it is unfair that a great continent, like Africa, has only been allowed to organise one world cup in a century," he said.
