New York: Former United States manager Bob Bradley hopes President-elect Donald Trump discards "divisive and ugly" tactics to help America's ambition to stage the Olympic Games and the 2026 Football World Cup.

The States Soccer Federation has expressed interest in bidding to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup, either alone or with neighbours Mexico. But Trump's comments during his campaign about banning Muslims from entering the country, building a wall along the Mexican border and withdrawing from international organisations has raised fears that America could miss out on staging the world's two biggest sporting events.

Bradley, who guided the USA into the last 16 of the 2010 World Cup, said: "I can only hope moving forward that the responsibilities of the job of President will show a marked difference from what we saw throughout the campaign."
