The FIFA president pointed out that with the 48-team World Cup there will be more opportunities for countries to host the event.

The President of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, is passing through Chile, met with the President of the ANFP, Pablo Milad. Where the question that was repeated the most was whether it was possible for a World Cup to be held every two years.

At a press conference, the FIFA boss began by talking about the possibility of holding a World Cup every two years, assuring that it would not affect the Copa América in any way: “If a World Cup were played every two years this would not impact the Copa América. What’s more, it would impact it positively, the more high-level football there is, the better it is for everyone who is involved.. Giving teams more opportunities to play big tournaments has a positive impact on the country as well, on everything around them. There is nothing like the World Cup to develop football, each edition that can be improved can have a very positive impact. “

Infantino also answered if Chile could host a World Cup, to which the FIFA President replied: “Yes, Chile can host a World Cup. You have to have the ambition to host a World Cup. With 48 teams it will be very difficult for a single country. It is not correct to ask only one country, but Chile is a country of football of the highest level, with players who have written history in the biggest football clubs. You have to have this ambition. “He assured.

In addition, he gave his opinion about Chile and whether or not he would like it to go to the next World Cup: “I would like to have a World Cup with 211 participants. It is clear that this generation of players is incredible, but they have to deserve it on the field, win games and qualify. Unfortunately, they did not qualify for Russia 2018, which is a demonstration of the very high quality at the international level. Good luck to Chile and the others. ” He closed the helmsman of world football.
