Yes, this is going to happen very soon. Trust me. I have a feeling that India can qualify in the 23rd edition of FIFA World Cup. How?

Fifa’s 48-team expansion. (FIFA 2026)

It will be expanded to host 48 teams, up from 32.
16 groups of three teams will advance into a 32 team knockout stage/ Round of 32.
Number of matches will rise to 80 from 64.
Now, the most important thing.

Number of countries qualifying from different FIFA Confederations.

Europe – Will likely rise from 13 to 16

Asia – 9 teams

Africa and Asia could have as many as nine teams each.


India’s current ranking in AFC (Asian Football Confederations) is 14th just behind Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. Earlier, India was ranked at 21. The ranking of Indian football team is getting better year by year. I feel that India can qualify for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The 2019 Asia Cup can be a turning point in the history of Indian football. Let’s hope for the best.
