Best known for mint tea and a city which acted as the setting for 1942 film Casablanca, Morocco could be landing the World Cup.

ESPN.com reports the United States-led 2026 bid is in jeopardy, in some part due to president Donald Trump’s growing unpopularity in Arab and poorer countries.

“Support for the United States-led bid to host the 2026 World Cup is more divided than most predicted,” ESPN.com senior writer Sam Borden wrote. “With some estimates of voting totals having Morocco not just threatening the North American bid but actually beating it, multiple high-ranking football executives within FIFA and the continental confederations told ESPN this week.”

The US-Canada-Mexico triumvirate was expected to comfortably gain a majority of votes — and even attempted to bypass the normal bidding process and have FIFA award them the tournament early.
