32 teams was fine, but 48 will ruin it. The Euro 2016 tournament was awful, thanks to teams that had no business being in the tournament being there and the format, and it was a huge step down from 2012, which was a very good tournament and only had one team (Eire) that looked out of its depth.
This US world cup (which it what it will be, because Mexico and Canada will get no games that actually matter) will be awful football wise for most of it, and considering the distances and climate, by the latter stages of the tournament, the teams will be dead on their feet. In 1994, the final was awful due in part to Italy having to play the semi in New York, then fly to California to play the final.
