Football: Samuel Eto'o increases the number of African teams at the World Cup from 05 to 09

FIFA confirms the distribution of places between the confederations from the 2026 World Cup.

For Cameroonian fanatics, it would be a feat of their champion Samuel Eto'o.

16 direct places for the Europe zone (UEFA);
9 direct places for the Africa zone (CAF);
8 direct places for the Asia zone (AFC);
6 direct places for the North, Central America and Caribbean zone (CONCACAF);
6 direct places for the South America zone (CONMEBOL);
1 direct place for the Oceania zone (OFC);
The organizing country is automatically qualified and its place is deducted from the quota allocated to its confederation.
There will therefore be 48 teams for the 2026 World Cup!
