I think any football fan should know what the new president Gianni Infantino wants to do with the World Cup format. I think they already made it official, it's gonna be like this:

48 teams: 16 groups of 3 teams

First 2 of each group advance to the round of 32 and it develops as normal play-offs. There would be no changes talking about the number of games played by the one who reaches the final, so there is no additional burden for the players.

It's worthy to distinguish that there would be no ties in the group stages either (90 minutes then penalties if teams are tied).

The spots would be given like this:

UEFA (Europe): 16 spots out of almost 60 countries.
Conmebol (South-America): 6.5 spots out of 10 countries.
Concacaf (North-,Central-America and the Caribbean): 6.5 spots out of 35 countries.
AFC (Asia): 8.5 spots out of 45 countries (I think).
CAF (Africa): 9.5 spots out of almost 60 countries.

What do you think?
