World Cup Changes

Oceania Football to benefit from proposed World Cup changes

The revamped tournament would include a guaranteed slot for Oceania for the first time, 16 places for Europe - up from 13 - and a six-team inter-zonal play-off tournament for two more spots.

Currently the winner of the Oceania confederation must play the fifth-placed South American side for a place at the tournament.

New Zealand Football chief executive Andy Martin said they've been lobbying for such changes for years.
