ZURICH (AP) - Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman will join former President Bill Clinton in making the final presentation to FIFA's executive committee of the U.S. bid to host the 2022 World Cup.
Freeman portrayed former South African President Nelson Mandela in the movie "Invictus" about the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa.
American bidders said Monday that U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati and American national team star Landon Donovan also will take part in the 30-minute presentation Wednesday, a day before the vote.
Australia, Japan, Qatar and South Korea also are hoping to host the 2022 tournament. FIFA will decide the same day among England, Spain-Portugal, Russia and Belgium-Netherlands for the 2018 host.
