WORLD MEANS WORLD:

A 48-team World Cup, the Jabulani and silver goals: football's worst ever bright ideas (Alan Tyers, 5 OCTOBER 2016, The Telegraph)

Gianni Infantino, the Fifa president whose election promises included expanding the World Cup finals to 40 countries, on Monday proposed an even larger tournament involving 48 teams. Because if you've got a terrible idea, why not make it a really terrible one by adding a bit more on top?

Actually, ever since the NCAA made leagues meaningless, I've thought they should just open the Tournament to every team in Division 1.  It only adds a weekend essentially and you just replace league tournaments.

Even better would be a World Cup where every nation makes it and you play single elimination all the way through.
