Conmebol already has 5 qualifiers. For me the most they could get from an expanded World Cup would be 1 more spot. I would hope Oceania got 1 proper place at least too.

I know most of the teams probably aren't very good but it still bugs me personally that every other confederation gets a guaranteed qualifier. Yet Oceania have to play off against someone.

I imagine if expanded also they will likely give a few more spaces to North American, African and Asian teams.

I hope it's not 1 each then 3 S. American and 9 European teams though.

Maybe someone should form an Antarctica team.

Seems to be official.
Another part of football killed by corporate greed. Excellent.

Just let everybody in. Everybody wins!

I think given the size of the continent, pretty much every country views football as it's no 1 sport and the talent it produces Africa should certainly be given a few more spots than they currently get, I think Asia will get the most extra spaces though to guarantee Chinese qualification.

Trying to think of the permutations that would result in a three way tied group...
You could still get a tied group.

Team A v Team B = 1-1, A wins 5-4 on pens
Team B v Team C = 1-1, B wins 5-4 on pens
Team C v Team A = 1-1, C wins 5-4 on pens

Each team has two draws, one 5-4 penalty win and one 5-4 penalty defeat.

Smart move, FIFA.

That's it I am now done with the world cup. After the corrupt bidding for 2018 and 2022 this is the final straw.

I bet that would prompt Australia to leave the Asian confederation in a hurry

Only just seen this. Give World cup to Russia and Qatar then make it 48 teams. Good old Fifa.

Think it is long over due that the largest FA's split from Fifa and form their own organisation.

Then again, not sure what good it would do as the FA's are just as bent as FIFA anyway.

So effectively, Russia is the last proper World Cup.

Eg played in Summer, a good number of teams, a good format, a proper host nation, etc.

That will be gone forever after 2018. A real shame and clearly it's all in the name of making more cash for the people at the top.

It's made more annoying by the fact that UEFA have completely screwed up the European Championships with the increase in teams and removal of a single host nation. Goodbye international football

Yeah its all going to ratshit, and all because of money. Will enjoy Russia next year but after that who knows. At least Scotland won't get there even if they make it 64 teams All the international breaks piss me off enough as it is already.
