    I thought about that, it would only leave one spot for a North American side to qualify - then I remembered that 2026 is the year they are stupidly putting it up to 48 teams. Another bloody ridiculous idea from FIFA that will totally ruin the World Cup. Better enjoy this one and the next one while we can, as it becomes a diluted sack of rubbish lasting about two months after that.

    Officially they do until 2022, the fifa council haven’t ruled on this bid but I’m sure they will.

    It’s the cup holder that has to go through qualification, like Germany did this time around.

    Not sure how. There will be one extra knock-out round to fit in won't there?

    I still think it's a ridiculous idea. There will be too many useless teams in there, and with three team groups with only one going out, you will see a lot more boring defensive football as people realise two draws is likely to be enough. Teams advancing without even winning a game. Rubbish.

    I agree, it’ll be like the euros where the lesser teams go all out defence against group favs and then hope they can beat their rival at the bottom to squeeze through.

    I think that it’ll be 4/5 games a day until knockout. So maybe the groups over earlier.

    I think the current 32 team format is perfect, as a spectacle and from a mathematical viewpoint, where it all matches up perfectly. i.e. 50% of teams go out each time. It just works and I hate the fact that they've messed with it.
