Infantino believes "a fundamental point" for an expanded finals would be to have it co-hosted "by several countries".

FIFA president Gianni Infantino has confirmed that he backs expanding the World Cup to 48 teams, giving "more of a chance to more teams", in an exclusive interview with AFP.

Infantino believes "a fundamental point" for an expanded finals would be to have it co-hosted "by several countries".

He also declared himself "quite happy and confident for the future" of the scandal-tainted world governing body of football.

"I don't steal, I don't profit, I don't cheat and I don't want to allow anyone in this organisation to do so," he added.
