    We need more places for European countries in WC imo countries like Panama are weaker than many European teams that failed to qualify.

    With the expansion in 2026 the number of UEFA teams will increase to 16.

    Yes but this is still not enough. Should be 24.

    Thats what I also say. Last Year we had very bad Teams like Cameroon, Australia, Honduras etc
    And on the other side, Sweden for example failed to Qualify because they had bad luck getting the later Worldchampion Germany in the Group (they even managed to make a 4:4 from a 0:4) and in the Playoffs Portugal.

    This Year again Sweden, NL and France; at least one of them, has to stay at home, while in Africa we have a group with Tunisia, Lybia, Guinea and DR Kongo..

    I think and maybe have also enough quality to belong to the best 48 Countries in the World. So 16 Spots for Europe are not enough.

    A match between winner of this weak African group vs 3rd team from European group should determine qualification. Otherwise is very unfair.

    It's not only Africa..

    No asian qualifier apart of maybe Iran would have had a chance to qualify for WC in the Euro qualifiers.

    Judging by potential Japan would be good enough but they are underperforming in most matches. In Asia they get through with it, in Europe they would end up on 3rd or 4th place of the group

    South Korea, Saudi Arabia and Australia wouldn even come close

    But well, Fifa loves to kiss the asses of exotic country + they wanna open up new markets thats why other confederations have more places than they deserve
