A Tale of two Tournaments

This has been a World Cup of many firsts. The first World Cup held in an Arab nation, the first World Cup held in the Muslim World, the first time the World Cup was played in the winter due to the extreme heat of the Qatari summer. To Messi fans, this was Messi’s first win in his last ever World Cup. But this World Cup, with the familiar format of 32 teams split into 8 groups, was also the last of its kind. The next World Cup in 2026 will have 48 teams.
