Former United States president Bill Clinton has been appointed honorary chairman of the nation’s bid to host the World Cup in either 2018 or 2022. It means the 63-year-old will play a vital role in trying to bring the prestigious tournament back to America.

According to BBC Sport, Clinton said, "I continue to be impressed with Fifa’s work to promote the game as an agent for positive social change and I’m proud to represent the United States in our bid to bring the World Cup tournament back to American soil, allowing us to inspire action and co-operation on an even greater scale."

America last hosted the World Cup in 1994, and Clinton feels the time is right once again to bring the tournament to the United States.
