Africa to benefit from potential FIFA World Cup expansion

By iSportconnect | July 26, 2016

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has said that Africa will get two additional World Cup finals places if the tournament is expanded to 40 teams.

One of the proposals from Infantino before he was elected President was to expand the tournament from 32 teams to 40.

The plan would be for the expansion to take place from 2026, cheap with the next two tournaments having the current total of 32 teams.

Africa is currently allocated five places at World Cups.

The Fifa boss is set to be interviewed by ethics investigators after allegedly breaching its code of ethics.
