#FifaMundial : See The Number Of Teams That Will Participate In Qatar 2022 World Cup
FIFA President Gianni Infantino said on Friday he was “optimistic” about organising the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with 48 teams instead of 32 but warned that it would be “not easy”.
“I’m optimistic but is it easy? No, it’s not easy, I have to be honest,” said the boss of the International Football Federation at a press conference in Istanbul after a three-day executive summit.
FIFA has decided to increase the number of teams that will participate in the 2026 World Cup from 32 to 48 but the Italian-Swiss president of the world football governing body is campaigning to implement this reform as early as 2022.
FIFA is due to announce its decision in mid-March at a meeting in Miami.
Qatar, which says it is preparing for a 32-team competition, said it would have a say before deciding to move to an expanded tournament that would lead to logistical and political complications.
While Infantino has raised the possibility of organising meetings in neighbouring countries, a serious diplomatic crisis pits Qatar against its neighbours including Saudi Arabia — which since 2017 has imposed an economic blockade to the gas-rich state.
“I am not that naive to overlook the political situation as well in the region,” said Infantino while adding that “football can work miracles sometimes.”
Taking the example of the 2026 World Cup that will be organised by Canada, Mexico and the United States, Infantino said that “there are a lot of debates about a wall being built” between the United States and Mexico but “these two countries will organise a competition together so they will have to work together.”

Done deal! Man United Star Fellaini Finally Joins New Club
Manchester United have reached an agreement with Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng over the transfer of midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
It is understood the Belgium player has already passed his medical and the transfer is close to being completed.
Fellaini, 31, joined United from Everton for £27m in 2014 when he became the first significant signing after Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure as manager.
He signed a new two-year deal last summer that was due to run until 2020.
However, Fellaini has managed just three minutes of Premier League action in seven top-flight games under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and United have decided to cut their losses.
DONE DEAL! Manchester City Sign New Star Player On Transfer Deadline Day
Manchester City on Thursday completed the signing of midfielder, Ante Palaversa from Croatian side, Hajduk Split on loan.
Palaversa joined the Premier League holders for a reported fee of £7million after he completed a medical in Manchester earlier this week.
The 18-year-old will be sent back to Hadjuk on loan until 2020, but Manchester City have the option to recall him in January of the same year.
Speaking after the transfer was made official on Thursday, the Croatian youngster told the club’s official website: “Thanks to Manchester City for the trust.
“There is still a lot of work ahead of me.
“I have not yet shown all I can and I hope to play for Hajduk to justify the great trust I have received from England’s champions.”
BREAKING! Anthony Martial Signs New Contract At Man United
Forward Anthony Martial has signed a new contract at Manchester United until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.
The 23-year-old, who joined United from Monaco in September 2015 for £36m, has been in talks for a while.
United’s interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:
“For a young man, he has a good footballing brain, which, when coupled with his exceptional talent, makes for a player with an exciting future ahead of him.”
In June, Martial’s agent said his player – who has scored eight Premier League goals this season – wanted to leave Old Trafford and it was known former boss Jose Mourinho was happy to sanction his departure.
But United’s hierarchy instead opened fresh negotiations and Martial said on Thursday:
“I would like to thank Ole and his coaching staff for their belief in me and for helping me to take my game to the next level.
“I am loving my time at this club.
“From the day I joined, I have been made to feel part of the United family and I have been incredibly humbled and overwhelmed by the warmth and love of our fans, who continue to amaze me with their support.”
