Voice of the FIFA Sports unanimously in favor of the change at a meeting in Zurich on Tuesday.
And a number of matches to rise to 80 from 64, but the eventual winners still playing only seven games.

Changes on the occasion of the first expansion of the World Cup since 1998.
It described the new FIFA date, the campaign, which says the governing body of a group in need of reform, expansion of “seize the funds and seize power.”

“It will not help the development of the game or to provide the best competitive opportunities for countries in the lower ranks. Instead, it will be a mockery of the rehabilitation process most of the unions.”
Football Association plans to increase the FA Cup prize money in order to help reduce League clubs, says CEO Martin Glenn.
In October, the FA has signed a six-broadcast overseas rights deal for the post season in the FA Cup – reportedly worth £ 820M.
He said Glenn Football Association could raise the current £ 25M fund because of the deal, which start from the 2018-19 season.
“The FA Cup is a great way to redistribute money to the lower league,” said Glenn BBC Radio 5 Live.
“The prize fund is £ 25M”, said Glenn Sportsweek. “We’re looking to increase that over the coming years, we hope to benefit the small clubs.”
He also said Glenn Football Association may look at the introduction of the “unity” of the payment of money that will help the division more alike. Under the current system, the clubs get a larger amount of money if the televised match
“Excessive male elderly whites represented”
Sports Minister warned Tracey Crouch last month that the government will work on legislation to impose FA reforms if the governing body does not make the same changes, determine the April deadline for the Football Association to “determine the path of reform.”
Glenn confirmed some of the concerns of the five executives Union officials, former England, including the former head of Greg Dyke, who said the organization held back, “elderly white men.”
Figures show that 122 members in the House of Football Federation .92 aged more than 60, eight women and four are from the ethnic minorities.
“It’s more representative by white males who are very old and they do not really reflect the people in the game and this is an opportunity,” said Glenn.
“With the reform of the Council, and we would like to see term limits and that the government would like to see term limits so that you can not stay there for life.
“You could do three sets of four years, and then move on new blood so that it can come through.”
The third round saw the FA Cup for many aspects of the Serie A spin ranks, with Bournemouth made 11 changes before losing 3-0 away to League One side Millwall.
But Glenn said he was happy for the teams to use the competition to juggle resources.
“I think they Bournemouth undefended. Eddie Howe can make its own reasons for that.”
“Do not bother me. Premier League teams really understand the value of the English FA Cup brings them.
“People want to do a good job in the cup, but the positive side is that these big clubs have great teams, you want to give people game time.
“Give a chance to young players to get a real game experience is not a bad thing.”
Only Olivier Giraud could antagonize a lot of Arsenal fans in the process of goal-saving match
Frenchman capped off a memorable three days by scoring the goal stoppage to salvage a point at Arsenal trip away to Bournemouth on Tuesday night.
Arsenal’s 3-0 humiliating defeat staring at him, the player,

Les Miles, always eccentric, frustrating sometimes boring football coach Louisiana and never fired four games in a season of 12, record, the university announced Sunday.
Mile 0.62, was as much a mascot of L.S.U. Football as Mike the Tiger. His most famous obsession with tearing a handful of grass from the grass and eating tiger stadium. But he was also wildly successful,
with an overall record of 114-34, the top five after 10 finishes,
two national championship game, and after the 2007 season, the title and a national one.
But the difference Miles, which has always been made up of many of the best players in the country,
according to the classification of national recruitment and seen, and disappointments, especially during the past two seasons,
when the Tigers finished 8-5 and 9-3.
One of the rules of fanatical fan of the country grew ran out of patience, Alabama and Auburn, and two division rivals, and won a combined five national titles since L.S.U. Won one.
It seems that the final straw came on Saturday afternoon in the desert. L.S.U.,
who entered the game 2-1 and ranked 18th, followed by 18-13 as the final seconds ticked away,
and seemed to score a dramatic landing on the final green light to play in the game.
But the official review showed that the ball had collapsed after it ended around the clock,
eliminating the outcome, handing Auburn victory and dropping L.S.U. To 2-2.
L.S.U. He said in a statement that Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has been fired,
and that the defense coordinator Ed Orgeron had been offered the post of interim coach.
The news agency said the first time by a lawyer from Baton Rouge.
Acquisitions Miles, a contract that was scheduled to pay him at least $ 4.3 million annually through 2019,
can be up to $ 12.9 million, the United States said last year.
In fact any context, even the bottom of the relative such as those L.S.U.
Pass, it will be considered as acceptable. Teams mi have won nine games or more in nine seasons in spite of playing in the most capable of the college football competition,
Southeast Conference Western division (all those seven head coaches make at least 4 million $ per year), in time, which has dominated the division from Alabama strain unprecedented.
But L.S.U. Hardly any context. The only major conference team in one of the most of the rich countries to recruit in the country, is preparing for the Tigers for excellence.
The fan base for the Tigers, known for tailgates delicious followed by chants of game time intensive, require it.
The mile skating on thin ice for a while. After the 2014 season, L.S.U.
It was unranked. In the past year, the beginning of the unbeaten in the team and the campaign Heisman Trophy front-running running back Leonard Fournette both skidded to a halt in November loss to Alabama,
which began three consecutive defeats.
Before the final in the regular season last year, at home against Texas A & M,
said Miles basically goodbye in a pool for L.S.U. Reinforcement, according to reports.
But Miles retained his position for a little longer by winning that game against A & M,
and then win in the Texas Bowl, and claims several victories on the recruiting trail, where L.S.U.
Scored the third highest rate of employment in the country.
And it identified the Alabama head coach, Nick Saban, a standard views of Miles,
with four national titles in the past seven seasons (and current No. 1 ranking). It was Saban, who led L.S.U.
The first national title for decades, after the 2003 season, and who recruited many record of the stars of the 2007 team that won it for Miles.
Dating back to the national game after the 2011 season,
which closed the crimson tide of tigers from 0.21 to 0, in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans address,
Saban has won the last five meetings with gusto which is a record.
Miles launch – the high cost of this will require and intolerance on what looks like the sustained success that proves – is further evidence that at the top of the college football level,
you can not distinguish it from the N.F.L. In its eagerness to experiment with new trainers in the pursuit of success in the end.
Expansion of the college playoffs for football, and the continuous increase in media rights deals and the presence of all the cable networks dedicated to leagues and one – has raised the alert level sports executives,
To this end, the Tigers might hunt for the brand name, and the coach is expensive.
It is likely that Tom Herman, who include Houston ranked sixth on the all in his second season, and Jamie Fisher, Florida State coach in the major candidates.
Arsenal of the difference between the scout Ivory Coast star Frank Kessie,
according to Calciomercato.
He reportedly joined Arsenal from Chelsea to see the player,
aged 19 years old to work for Atalanta in the Italian league last week.
Midfielder Kessie season began in good shape,
packing four goals in five games so far this campaign.
It is to attract high Kessie also the attention of clubs in Italy,
but, with both Juventus and Napoli monitor progress for him.
As he recently revealed that he was soon to join Sunderland this summer.
Arsene Wenger revealed Serge Gnabry rejected a new contract before his release from Arsenal this summer.
He joined the German sense of Werder Bremen for a fee believed to be around £ 5million.
“We did not want to get rid of Gnabry, we wanted to keep it.
He said he was in the final year of his contract.”
“We were close to a contract extension, but in the end he changed his mind and went to Werder Bremen.
But I think we taught him a lot and I think if you ask him he agreed with that.”
Alexis Sanchez has been warned not to break the rules of the club again after the wrath of Arsene Wenger,
writes John Cross Mirror Football.
Arsenal Wenger and his players were stunned when Sanchez took a penalty in Hull last Saturday and it was Arsenal forward missed his spot kick.
Ignore Sanchez agreed to take the capital club – with Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott in front of him – because he wanted a pen.
Wenger said since Sanchez in no uncertain terms to take into account the rules of the club and will be the first Cazorla took the penalty option if Arsenal get one against Chelsea.
The post Cazorla scored moments penalty against Southampton last week,
Sanchez was stunned when he took the penalty.
Jose Mourinho has claimed that he has a mole in the Arsenal dressing room that would send him text messages secret during his time at Chelsea, writes Aaron Flanagan Mirror Football.
French Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims that “nothing to do” through training sessions in the build-up to beat Arsenal 2-0 on an impressive Manchester City in January 2015.
In his new book, Jose Mourinho: Up Close and Personal,
a journalist Rob Beasley some of the details of the competition and revealed ongoing since Mourinho period with Wenger.
In this book, which is being serialized by the Daily Mail, he claimed Mourinho Beasley said:
“One of the Arsenal players] sent me a text message to say the players did themselves, organized themselves during the week. Not Wenger’s nothing.”
When pressed on whether the information is correct,
Mourinho said he insisted that the author, who was “100 per cent”.
Jacoby Brissett was not exceptional in his first start for the New England Patriots,
but he succeeded in the game efficiently and helped secure the 27-0 win against the Houston Texans.
Brissett was filling in for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo, who was starting in place of suspended Tom Brady,
were both Garoppolo Brissett and able to intervene in this season as in the beginning and make enough plays to win games.
This is par for the course for the Patriots, Bill Belichick’s. Belichick during the period, and his astrologers are 6-0 in their first career starts.
That includes Todd Philcox, Eric Zeier, Tom Brady, Matt Cassel, then the two quarterbacks this season, Garoppolo and Brissett.
His stats do not win mind-blowing, but Brissett played well. Passed for 103 yards
and added 48 yards on the ground. Brissett did not have any touchdown passes, but he also ended with no objection.
Rob Gronkowski was inactive for the game, but he was not much of a factor. He said he was in good health completely,
and he was a quality target for Brissett in his first start in the peak periods against the defense of Texas well.
New England did not need to rely on the passing game a lot, though. A comfortable margin throughout the game, the Patriots were able to run things on the ground.
First came the evening of Patriot missiles landing on the 27-yard Brissett operation that was a thing of beauty.
Two others also came on the ground, of LeGarrette Blount, who achieved 105 yards. Patriots finished with 185 total yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns.
Against the Patriots, Texas looked much more like the team that got beat 30-0 by the heads of the playoffs last season instead of the team that beat the heads of 19-12 last week.
The Houston offense stagnant and did not even make it past the line 50 yards until late in the third quarter. Brock Osweiler was only 196 yards away and not landing with one objection.
Making a difference bags in this game. Even with a dominant defensive player as J.J. Watts, Texas was able to dismiss Brissett only once in the whole game, and it was not a watt player who did it.
This is not uncommon for the watt, according to ESPN Stats and Information, the Patriots are the only team Watt has zero sacks after playing against them at least three times in his career.
Patriots, on the other hand, was able to drop two of the bags on Osweiler, and they pressed him regularly.
The other factor shifts. The Patriots did not turn the ball over at all, and Texas gave up two fumble on the kickoff returns, in addition to intercepting Osweiler’s.
Patriot missiles considered unstoppable with the middle third series
and fill in for Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo. Texas, on the other hand, it seemed completely defeated as they were closed for the first time since December 2003.
Some folks might not have noticed, but Mike Weber is off and running as Ohio State’s starting running back.
Weber has been solid but also has been overshadowed by several teammates who have had eye-opening performances in the first three games: quarterback J.T. Barrett, hybrid back Curtis Samuel, receiver Noah Brown and defensive backs Malik Hooker and Marshon Lattimore.
Also, Weber hasn’t had a long romp to the end zone that his predecessor,
Ezekiel Elliott, made a habit of doing seemingly at least once a game.
“I’m going to continue to work the game, continue to work the second level, and it’s going to happen for me,
” Weber said. “I’m still getting comfortable, still getting used to playing the (college) game. I feel like I can make things happen.”
Weber has had good production. Through three games, the redshirt freshman has rushed 54 times for 351 yards and one touchdown,
with 100-yard games against Bowling Green (136) and at Oklahoma (123). He’s averaging 117 yards per game, second in the Big Ten behind Indiana’s Devine Redding (122.5).
In comparison, Elliott totaled 141 yards on 27 carries in his first three games as a starter, in 2014.
Further, Weber’s 6.5-yard average per carry is second in the league among backs with 32 rushes or more,
topped by Samuel’s 8.1-yard average (32 carries for 260 yards).
“I did what I could when they gave me the ball,” said Weber,
who had a long run of 35 yards against Oklahoma. “That’s all that matters at the end of the day, as long as we get that W.”
Weber had a big chunk of the Buckeyes’ 291 rushing yards against an Oklahoma defense that was supposed to be tough to run against.
“I credit my offensive line,” he said.
“I played my hardest and every time I got the ball I tried to read my keys and do everything I can to help this team win.”
Weber, a Detroit native who was in a recruiting tug of war between Urban Meyer and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh on national signing day in 2015,
did not shy away from the glare of a nationally televised game at Oklahoma.
“I just felt like it was prime time,” he said. “Really, the whole nation was watching. I’m pretty proud of my teammates. …
“I feel like we got a lot of confidence after this game. I don’t think a lot of people thought of us as young anymore. We’re playing very well, I don’t believe we lost a step, and we’re going to continue to get better and go from there.”
Messi (2), scoring Suarez, Neymar and Rafinha goals that get the Spanish campaign in Barcelona right back on track with the installation in Madrid screen
FC Barcelona has developed a surprise home defeat to Alaves well behind the refractories.
After pumping the last seven Celtic middle of last week,
it continued to charge with uncompromising five-goal outburst in the first flight ever Leganes newly promoted.
But despite the wide margin of victory, and was holding a meeting lunch in southwestern Madrid.
When I came back to coach Liga prisoner Garitano fear approach to visit Barcelona, he meant it.
There was nothing cautious about his team as they came on the pitch to the sound of AC / DC and threw themselves in the pulsating first half in front of a full house in the excited Butarque Stadium.
But this ambitious against a team like FCB always spells danger. Anti-minute attack left the 15th Ualbed blue seriously exposed in the back – and in the three years to three when one of these triple Trident is world famous there can be only one result. Luis Suarez dropped the ball inside the penalty area,
where both Leo Messi and Neymar Jr. were waiting unattended. Argentina emerged from the house and it was Barcelona off with an early goal.
Leganes seemed unshakable. Quickly fought and fought hard – just the kind of game that makes Barça uncomfortable.
But in the second quarter of an hour like the first – with Barça finding the net just ended.
Messi did the hard work, riding a number of challenges over the long heatseeking in a position to play the ball to Luis Suarez. It was a simple tap in to Uruguay and 2-0.
Trident touch too much
So do not make Leganes lying down. It was far from the goal was to themselves Ter Stegen first and Samuel Oomteta fraction of a second later it was not hard on the rocks in denying what seemed certain goals for the Venezuelan Darwin Machis.
But this was a battle spirited upstarts against the big guns. Trident launched its full potential again before the half up, and again Leganes were unable to find an answer. Messi played a great ball through, and Suarez was all the time in the world to decide whether to fire or lay off to Neymar.
He chose the latter, and all three of the MSN can go to half-time refreshments in their accounts in order.
Rafinha shoots thrill
Ten minutes from the end of the half, Barcelona had another. I did not have a blatant tug by Bustinza shirt Neymar referee pointing directly on the spot. Moments later pointed Messi the ball directly into the upper right corner of the goal – which was 4-0.
But not everything about Trident.
He said Rafinha us that 64 minutes in, and working his way into position to blow up a resounding blow in the top corner of the net. The goal of the game.
It was not everything Barça, and Gabriel did some reminder of his own with absolute beauty from a free kick with ten minutes left on the clock.
Leganes was finally the goal that they were eager for him, but there was about only ever be one winner in this game. After a setback a week ago, this was a performance that needs to Luis Enrique. Barcelona again in the business – and at the right time for this game a crisis with Atletico on Wednesday.
Hockey World Cup – the dawn of team USA perfectly :TORONTO – After just two games in the new World Cup 2016 shiny hockey,
a team the United States has any hope to overcome three preliminary round matches.
There is no hope.
Now there’s an idea that resonates in the wake of sucking Spirit 4-2 loss to host Canada on Tuesday evening.
Two defeats uninspired has opened straight up the team and the process that have been identified to ridicule extensive.
He said, “I do not worry about that stuff,” defenseman Ryan Suter United States, close to tears after the loss.
“I worry about the men in the room, and I think we all feel disappointed.
I feel like we let our country down. We let ourselves down. It’s just disappointing.
I came into this not knowing how many more opportunities you’re going to get and be out after two games is disappointing too. ”
The United States team did not come to Toronto as a favorite in this tournament,
but no one expected that it would come so meekly?
Certainly not GM Dean Lombardi and his management team,
which went off-line to avoid the highly skilled players in favor of players with character and grit and leadership.
Through two games, the Americans are very few of those qualities.
He scored only two goals ahead and over exactly 1 minute, 30 seconds.
Therefore, this was the choice of the wrong players?
Or the wrong coach?
One of the most modest portions of this impasse is that apparently this American team has been built on and face down the international giant that is Canada.
The Americans know they can not match them skill for skill, so she hopes to beat them with cruelty,
a term preferred by Brian Burke, who built this team in 2010 he won a silver medal (loss in overtime to Canada in an epic game gold medal).
But if this is the case, why was Brandon Dubinsky is not in the team lineup against Canada on Tuesday?
Foil for a long period of Canadian captain Sidney Crosby,
it seems that there is a reason for Dubinsky to be on this team if it was not going to play against Canada there.
Better to have scorers Phil Kessel, Tyler Johnson or Kyle Okposo.
What about Dustin Byfuglien and large aircraft Winnipeg defenseman, who was a healthy scratch points from the first game, a 3-0 loss to lightly regarded team of Europe that the United States put in the position of must-win Tuesday night? He explained his play Tuesday in what was scratching the part, and he lost track of Matt Duchene, allowing the Canadian forward to tie the score was less than two minutes after Ryan McDonagh first goal of the tournament the Americans had scored.
