What They're Saying: Gianni Infantino

“We gathered the opinions as well of our members, the federations. So far, of course, the majority are in favor because 16 more teams participating not only means that 16 more countries will have World Cup fever, but 50 or 60 countries will be able to dream of qualifying for the World Cup. Whether it is feasible or not is a different question.”
