Sepp Blatter, President of the FIFA have expressed his views that there will be more representatives from Asian and African continent at the World Cup.
Europe with 13 teams have the highest participants at the World Cup, Asia has four and Africa has five representatives under the current format.
Sepp Blatter, wrote in the weekly magazine about this issue, that we had to deal with this in a better way.
It’s really sad, the continent with the highest number of members (54), has only five participants at the World largest football competition after the Olympics.
If this situation remains like that, what you expect from other countries who are willing to perform at this stage, he added.
I am seeing this as a sporting point of view, if we really want to globalize this game among our new members, we have to solve this issue as soon as possible. Asia and Africa have the highest number of member’s participants in the World Cup qualifying stage, and still they are allowed with 9 or 10 representatives at the World Cup.
As we all know Europeans and South Americans have only won this tournament but that should not be the reason to avoid other countries.
European teams have won 10 World Cups, Italy (4), Germany (3), France (1), England (1), Spain (1), while South Americans are second with 9 titles, Brazil (5), Argentina (2) and Uruguay (2).
Sepp Blatter ends this with by adding, we should be equal to all our members.
