AFRICA TO GET TWO EXTRA PLACES IN THE WORLD CUP IF TOURNAMENT EXPANDS

New FIFA president Gianni Infantino proposed an expansion from 32 teams for the FIFA World Cup to a total of 40 teams with Africa being given two extra slots.

This will, however, have to wait until 2026 if passed as the format for the next two World Cup tournaments have already been set. Africa is currently allocated five slot places in the World Cups.
