Fifa president wants 48 teams in the World Cup 2018 Finals

Fifa president Gianni Infantino has proposed expanding the World Cup finals in to a 48-team tournament, more than his initial promise of 40 teams. He suggested that 16 teams will be eliminated after one knockout match before the group stages.

The tournament would then proceed with the usual 32 teams competing in group stages, followed by knockout rounds.

“These are ideas to find the best solution, we will debate them this month and we will decide everything by 2017,” – Gianni Infantino
