Reinhard Rauball: Extra World Cup berth for Africa is 'unreasonable'

FIFA executive committee member Theo Zwanziger has revealed that Europe are set to lose a starting berth at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

German Football League (DFL) president Reinhard Rauball has warned that providing the African confederation (CAF) with an extra World Cup berth could be unreasonable.

On Tuesday, FIFA executive member Theo Zwanziger revealed that UEFA could lose one of its places at the 2018 finals, and that CAF could profit from it as they are under-represented under the current formula.

Theo Zwanziger: Europe could lose World Cup berth to Africa

FIFA executive committee member Theo Zwanziger has revealed that Europe are set to lose a starting berth at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter backed moving the 2022 World Cup from the June-July time slot.

According to the former German Football Association [DFB] president, Africa could profit from Europe's loss as the confederation is believed to be unfairly represented on football's most elite stage.

At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, 13 European nations and five African nations competed for the biggest title in world football. The Asian confederation [AFC] was awarded 4.5 starting...

Europe should get extra World Cup spot, says UEFA chief Michel Platini

UEFA President Michel Platini will not stand against Sepp Blatter in next year's FIFA Presidency elections but will back a candidate who will offer something new to football.
Germany's fourth World Cup win has moved them to the top of FIFA's world rankings.
World champion Germany have arrived back home in Berlin after landing their fourth World Cup title.

MONACO -- Europe deserves an extra team at the next World Cup, UEFA president Michel Platini said Thursday.

Platini won't challenge Blatter in FIFA elections

Platini pledged to ask FIFA for the extra spot because Germany's World Cup victory in Brazil made it three straight titles for Europe. Italy won in 2006 and Spain four years ago.

"European football proved it's the leader in the world," Platini said. UEFA had 13 of 32 teams in Brazil, and Platini wants 14 qualifying places in 2018. Host Russia...
