BREAKING NEWS: This morning, the sites of the 2018 and the 2022 World Cup were announced, and many countries, including the United States, anxiously waited for their name to be called. Unfortunately for USA fans, the United States was not selected as a site, as Russia was selected for 2018, and minutes later (sleeper pick) Qatar was selected for the 2022 World Cup. Qatar was selected over the United States, Australia, Japan, and South Korea. The United States last hosted a World Cup in 1996.
