"We'll get the team performing and we'll qualify if we have to", John Herdman told CTV's Your Morning Wednesday, just about an hour after the announcement that the joint bid of Canada, Mexico and the United States had beaten Morocco to host the 48-team tournament.

Kansas City's central location, stadium capacity and soccer culture make it a likely host.

Estimated ticket prices for the potential matches in Kansas City would be $468 for quarter-final games and $609 for the third-place game.

She believes the city, and the Olympic Stadium, will be ready for the tournament, due in part to financial guarantees from the federal government. "As a result of these three nations and countless individuals collaborating to deliver an excellent bid, we are now in position to elevate and advance the sport like never before".

"You look at the assets we've got in England, or the United Kingdom, in terms of grounds: some of the best grounds in world football, the best training grounds".

While Portland is known for its tremendous support of soccer, the city doesn't have a stadium that would support the attendance numbers expected for a World Cup game.

The Football Association is understood to be strongly considering a bid to host the World Cup in 2030, and Gill says England should be encouraged by the fact FIFA put so much emphasis on the United bid's financial and technical scores in the bidding process.
