If the United States is ever to conquer its final sporting frontier and win the football World Cup, 2026 could be the perfect time.The year marks the 250th anniversary of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, when the then 13 American colonies announced their split from Britain to form the United States of America.Independence Day, celebrated each year on July 4, will be around the same time as the 2026 World Cup final, which could well be played on U.S. soil. Aggrieved at missing out on the chance to host either the 2018 or 2022 World Cups, the U.S. is planning to bid for 2026 and appears to have a great chance of being selected.
