  • FIFA 18 World Cup update

Morocco will know whether they are to be the second African nation to host the tournament when more than 200 of Fifa's member associations vote to decide the 2026 World Cup host on 13 June.

EA Sports predicted that France would win a third World Cup title this year.

As to some other World Cup predictions, the simulation has Spain finishing third and Germany reaching the finals undefeated. 32 teams have qualified for World Cup 2018, and will be competing for the most coveted crown of the footballing world. "Our coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil was hugely popular with our viewers, and we are looking forward to even more interest for this instalment".

Federation Internationale de Football Association held a last-minute meeting on Wednesday with the two candidates bidding to host the 2026 World Cup ahead of the publication of a report which could disqualify a bid rated not up to scratch.

Each of the 12 official Russian stadiums have been added to the game complete with World Cup match balls and team banners.

The free World Cup update of the game is available from May 29th and is sure to get thumbs twitching.

That is, assuming you're planning to play on PS4, Xbox One, PC or Nintendo Switch.

You shouldn't have to do anything though, because the console should prompt you to install the new update - which has a still-unconfirmed file size - when you log on this evening.

For full details regarding the new World Cup mode, you can visit its official page on the EA Sports website.

Under new bidding rules, the task force has the power to disqualify a bid if it does not meet minimum technical standards, especially with regard to stadiums.

We have to say, we're interested to see how close to predicting the future the world's biggest-selling soccer sim has come.

Portugal's Christiano Ronaldo, Argentina's Lionel Messi and Belgium's Eden Hazard will all be playable, as fans hunt for the best players in packs.
