Recent Great Changes Which Will Be Introduced In 2026 World Cup

Welcome to my sport news and i would like to inform you on the new rules of penalt shoutot which will be applied in 2026 world cup.FIFA chiefs are planning to introduce it in group matches.

We remember that the governing body is already planning to expand the competition from 32 teams to 48 for the 2026 tournament.The tournament will be held in collaboration of USA, Mexico and Canada.

The idea was first mooted back in 2017 and championed by FIFA’s chief officer for technical development, Marco van Basten.photo courtesy

Marco said that the Shootouts could be an option for tournaments with groups of three in which you play against two opponents.This will acts as a bonus to the matches which will be ending with draws.The bonus points shootouts could be taking place before kick off or after the final whistle.

If one team for instance draws one match 0-0 and wins the other 1-0, there’s a high risk that all three teams are level on points and goals in the end.

The group stages of Qatar 2022 are coming to an end as already nine teams have qualified to knockout stages.

Continue following my news to know the names of teams which have already qualified.
