Amokachi meets FAZ over Morocco WC bid

NIGERIAN football legend Daniel Amokachi has conferred with Football Association of Zambia  president Andrew Kamanga on the Moroccan bid for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Amokachi is one of the ambassadors for the 2026 bid and is traversing Africa to cement the Moroccan case for that country’s inaugural World Cup hosting.

According to fazfootball.com, Morocco will be up against a joint bid from USA, Canada and Mexico as they look to win the hosting rights for the very first time after having attempted on four earlier occasions – 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010.

Back in 1994, they lost the hosting rights to USA, who would get a chance to host for the second time.

The North African country has hosted the FIFA Club World Cup on two occasions and fancy their chances on the fifth time of asking.

FIFA will announce the hosts for the 2026 tournament on June 13 in Moscow.

Kamanga was flanked by FAZ deputy general secretary Adrian Kashala and head of administration Colonel Andrew Siame.

Africa has only hosted the World Cup in 2010 when South Africa did the continent proud with a successfully staged event.
