Portuguese Football Federation agrees with World Cup expansion

A source from the Portuguese Federation said it supported the candidacies of Luís Figo and Gianni Infantino for the FIFA presidency, who proposed to increase the number of teams at the World Cup, so it is therefore natural that the FPF agrees with the decision.

The FIFA Council, which has replaced the Executive Commission, on Tuesday unanimously voted to expand the final stage of the World Cup from 32 to 48 teams, keeping the number of days on which the competition is played and the number of games per team unchanged.
