The results are in and the U.S. will not be hosting the 2022 World Cup.

The announcement is a big blow to U.S. soccer. It will be a long wait before there is an opportunity for another American World Cup.

The U.S. Soccer Federation was hoping to bring the World Cup back to America for the first time since 1994.

"I consider it a disappointment for me personally, for sure, and a setback as we're trying to move this sport forward," USSF president Sunil Gulati said.

"And so from that perspective, it's certainly an opportunity lost," he added. "Do I think we're going to get to where we want to get eventually? The answer is yes."

Qatar also beat out Australia, Japan, and South Korea, The small country will be the first Middle Eastern Arab nation to host the event.
