Bitter Englishman: FIFA Is Ruining The World Cup

The Bitter Englishman thinks FIFA is taking this a little too far.

So the 2026 World Cup will be the first tournament to feature 48 teams rather than 32, and the Bitter Englishman can think of no better way to destroy the world’s greatest sporting event.

It’s like FIFA spends all day in a darkened room thinking up ways to ruin the tournament, and they’ve really knocked it out of the park with this one.

In 2026, we’ll see 23 teams from Asia, Africa and CONCACAF. That’s 10 more than the number we saw this summer, and did you see what those teams did in Russia? Absolutely nothing. 

Africa didn’t send a single representative to the Round of 16 — Asia sent Japan by virtue of the fair play rule. As for CONCACAF, well, Panama’s refusal to even attempt to play football was a disgrace to the finals. So let’s add 10 more from those regions! Brilliant!  

It should be a real treat to watch Brazil beat Saint Vincent and the Grenadines 17-0 at what’s supposed to be the world’s best competition. Nice work everyone.
