    As the article says, the idea is still in early stages ...

    I personally think "guest team" makes sense for South America, because they don't have many teams and qualification rounds there. However, many teams involve in qualification round so "guest team" doesn't make that much sense. On the other side, 2020 euro is a strange experience, so I guess this idea can be added as well.

    There's no doubt Euro + Brazil/Argentina will have better quality than the world cup and I guess that's Platini's main goal here.

    Seems like a slap in the face for the teams that are good enough to make the Euro but not the.world cup.

    This is silly. If they want to do it, just make the world cup every 2 years.

    I like it how it is now. Brazil can play in the Copa America, leave Europe alone.

    The whole 20-20 euro is a farce. Soon they will have teams like EPL vs LA liga vs bunfesliga instead of countries

    I doubt that ever happen with current load of club/country games ...

    However, I would like to see a more competitive champions league or world club cup.

    Yeah this is ridiculous and I hope it's a lie/it never gets done. Platini has too much free time on his hands.

    Haha, some comments in that article are priceless ...

    "Imagine this: The winners of this years European championships, Brazil
    'Mum is brazil in Europe?'"

    WHAT THE HELL I JUST READ???!!!!

    Platini and Blatter on a plane.
    B: Look, i've handed the 2022 WC to Qatar and i made the whole country happy
    P: But i want to give a chance to non-european countries to shine in the european championship, like Brazil, Argentina, maybe some countries from Africa, I'll make these countries happy.
    Pilot: I've got two idiots on the plane, If i throw them both out of the plane, I'll make the whole world happy.

    Not exactly a slap in the face, but definitely a slight. Europe has such depth of good teams that it seems silly to fill out the tournament with teams from another continent.

    But the whole point is it's not the World Cup. UEFA wants to maintain their power, while FIFA is trying to reduce the influence of Europe on the World Cup. So that's where this idea takes root. And to be honest, with the whole Qatar fiasco, FIFA needs to be brought down a notch and UEFA is probably the only organization strong enough to fight them. It's a shitty situation overall.

    Also, the comparison to South America inviting Mexico or Japan to the Copa America is a bit different. Europe is the deepest continent in terms of talent pool and competitive national sides, so inviting out of conference nations to participate seems unnecessary, whereas for South America, it makes sense.


    I wouldn't mind seeing a "Euro League" of the best teams from each country, but the logistics would be a nightmare for promotion/relegation and scheduling.

    Unlike the last world cup, EURO 2012 was actually a success. We cant have successful tournaments, that's just against nature.

    The Euro was great, before they had the brilliant idea to fuck it up going from 16 to 24 teams. And now this.

    Euro 2012 was a perfect tournament. So of course you should change the format and entry requirements for the next time.

    Mind-blowing !!

    Btw, the 2038's World cup will take place in South pole.
    They're also be few changes to the actual format:
    a] 96 qualified teams instead 24
    b] Boreal aurora instead floodlight
    c] the tournament will be played until one of the following will win the World cup:Congo,Malaesya or Faeroe islands

    Another Platini idea

    Platini said he wants 40 teams instead of 32 in world cup.

    First, quality > quantity, plz understand you bastard

    Second, how this will work?
    8 groups of 5, then 1 team won't play in last match, and that kind of unfair ...
    10 teams of 4, then how teams will qualify for next round? we need 16 or 32 ...

    The only good thing about Sepp Blatter is that he is not Platini.

    At least Platini was one of the best football players ever before stealing from football.
