I did well for voting Morocco, Nick Mwendwa

Nick Mwendwa does regret voting for Morocco in bid to secure the 2016 FIFA World Cup hosting rights.

Football Kenya Federation chairman says he did what was supposed to be done and on Wednesday, morocco lost the rights to the joint USA, Canada and Mexico in the global football extravaganza.

With 211 Fifa affiliates nations, 200 voted during the 68th Fifa Congress in Moscow on Wednesday, with the winners needing a majority of 104.

The united bid garnered 134 votes, while the North African country amassed 65 votes – including the one from FKF – from the Football Association presidents present during the Fifa General Assembly in Moscow.

Canada, Mexico, Morocco and the US were exempt from voting, while Ghana was absent after the country’s government said it had disbanded its football association amid allegations of widespread corruption.

The 2026 tournament will be the biggest World Cup ever held – with 48 teams playing 80 matches over 34 days.

Mwendwa’s decision to back Morocco is not surprising, as he had declared this stance back in February.
