Zürich, CH - "We've made a huge mistake," stated Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA, after the realization that his proposed 48 team FIFA World Cup would actually let more CONCACAF teams into the tournament.
"While I'm all for more money, and I think money is great.... do we REALLY want to see Trinidad and Tobago in the World Cup?" posited Infantino in an exclusive interview with The Nutmeg News. "There's only so much that the game of soccer can take, and it's entirely possible that a World Cup match between Aruba and Guyana would end the sport of soccer for the foreseeable future."
Insider sources indicated that FIFA did not entirely think out their proposal of expanding the World Cup as they incorrectly assumed there were more teams like Germany or France out there. Instead, when informed of Montserrat, Belize and Saint Kitts and Nevis, Infantino blanched at his own proposal and suddenly demanded a new meeting to retract his previous 48 team World Cup statement.
"Hell would be 110 degrees in Qatar with 5,000 people watching Suriname v Barbados," stated FIFA Senior Vice-President of trundle beds, money laundering and match fixing, Issa Hayatou. "We must prevent this with all of our vast resources and connections that we have. We cannot let CONCACAF destroy the FIFA World Cup."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as FIFA executives schedule a viewing of an earlier Saint Kitts and Nevis - Turks and Caicos Islands game to see if the 12-4 aggregate score line was actually entertaining.
