Nigeria wanted to co-host the 2010 World Cup but didn’t. Oil-rich Nigeria could host in the 2030s. As it shares Europe’s time zone, it’s great for African and European viewers. Summers can be hot, so the event may be moved to winter.
Nigerians love football, and the national squad just missed qualifying for Qatar. A tournament in Nigeria would have a party atmosphere and improve infrastructure.
A World Cup in Egypt would be a magnificent spectacle for its distinct culture. Westerners would be more comfortable in a freer Islamic country that allows drinking and gambling than in Qatar. There are tourist destinations, 5-star resorts, and so much to see.
Morocco loves football and has numerous renowned venues. Casablanca, made famous by the 1942 film, is the most famous. North Africa qualified for the Qatar World Cup and boasts many talented players, including Chelsea’s Ziyech.

After the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, there’s no reason to not have it there again.

With a precedent created in Qatar, it can be relocated from the summer to the winter in some places. Convenient timing is another selling element.
