The governing body of FIFA has voted the 2026 World Cup will be a competition of 48 teams, a noticeable uptick from the current 32-team format. This gives teams from poorer and smaller nations a chance to compete. It also means introducing a "do-or-die" knockout stage earlier in the bracket which has some fans upset. A superior team having a bad game could be eliminated from the World Cup prematurely and weaken the overall level of competition. Is this move good for FIFA? ⚽
