What Is Four More Among Friends?

Despite the assurances that they would stick to current mode of World Cup Final, top officials of FIFA have decided to propose changes that would bring 36 instead of 32 nations to Germany in 2006. This decision was made under immense pressure from South American soccer federation, whose officials claimed that the current form of World Cup leaves South American soccer nations underrepresented.

The decision has created quite a stir in Germany and especially among top European clubs. They claim that the increased number of World Cup finalists would lead to longer and more exhausting qualifications, resulting in their top players not being available for club competitions.
