Usually we'd be in favour of any move that made England's qualification for the World Cup that little bit easier, but this seems a teensy bit unnecessary.
Today, FIFA's council members have unanimously approved Gianni Infantino's plan for a 48-team World Cup, lifting the entry places from 32.
The new structure, where 16 groups of three (!) will be followed by a 32-team knockout, is set to be implemented in time for the 2026 finals.
Well, it'll mean that more nations get to take part, meaning more tourism, a seemingly longer running competition, and a subsequent increase in revenue for the famously cash-strapped FIFA.
And when FIFA win, we all win, right?
