    So that ensures that a big proportion (11 as of today, assuming Germany qualify as holders) of FIFA's own top ranked 48 teams won't be there.
    If they're going to do this then it's time for world qualifying groups rather than association-based qualification. It would be fairer and would also meet the objective of giving developing nations experience against good teams / help spread the game further.
    Current quota system is unfair to European teams and the expansion will do nothing to address that.
