European Championship in France for the first time was held with 24 teams, but also the number of World Cup teams can be extended starting in 2022.
The president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, said he supported the idea to have 48 national teams in World Cup.
“The moment has come to give the competition a little breathing. Even making the World Cup with 48 teams, the number of national teams that will qualify will be again under 30 percent of those who have joined the FIFA “, said the head of FIFA.
From this changes is expected to benefit small teams, hoping to qualify for the first time in a World Cup.
