Olsson's comments come after he last month criticised Federation Internationale de Football Association for an "expansion drive" following the suggestion of a 48-team 2022 World Cup.

US last host the tournament in 1994 where Brazil emerged victor after beating Italy on penalties after the full regulation period had ended goalless.

The letter sent by Infantino also revealed European countries could receive as much as $50 million (£37 million/€42 million) for participating in a single UEFA Nations League campaign.

However, Trump is hoping to get the support of most African countries to achieve their goal.

"We will be watching very closely, and any help they can give us in that bid, we would appreciate".

Meanwhile, voting to award the 2026 World Cup will hold on June 13 in Moscow at world football governing body, FIFA's annual congress, and in the process, publish the choice of each voting member for transparency.

They crashed out of the last edition in the round of 16 in Brazil and they will not be appearing in this year's edition. The United States is joining Mexico and Canada in proposing a three-country host for the 2026 event.

The tournament, known as the "Final 8", would be the climax of a proposed global Nations League competition, part of an ambitious plan to reform worldwide football which FIFA believes could be worth $25 billion in a 12-year cycle.

The cumulative US$75 million for a European victor would dwarf the US$35 million received by Germany for winning the 2014 World Cup and the US$38 million on offer for the victor of this summer's edition in Russian Federation.

But Morocco has secured support from the influential Confederation of African Football as well as countries in Europe, notably France.

Jaimie Fuller, one of the founding members of the New FIFA Now advocacy group, believes Trump may weigh heavily on the North American bid, while cautioning that the vote remains finely balanced. South Africa, which competed with Morocco for the 2010 edition, also announced its support a few weeks ago.
