Blatter Hoping For Allies In Africa 04/05/03
Africa could have a crucial role to play in opposing Fifa plans to expand the number of competing countries in the 2006 World Cup in Germany from 32 to 36.

President Sepp Blatter is hoping to persuade African countries to oppose the plan, which is set to be discussed this coming Saturday in Switzerland.

The proposal has been put forward by the South American federation, who lost a place at the 2006 event when Oceania were awarded one automatic qualification spot.

But Blatter believes the expansion will negatively impact on the length of the tournament  and is seeking allies in Africa's four members on the executive committee.

As Africa does not stand to gain an extra place under the proposal, Blatter will be confident of their support, especially having pushed so hard himself for Africa to receive the tournament in 2010.
