Currently yes, but there was an article today saying they may reconsider and go to 12 groups of 4. Problem is that it would require a whole bunch of extra games for everyone.

Right now

2022: 64 total games
2026 (w/ groups of 3): 80 total games
2026 (w/ Groups of 4): 104 games
Yeah, article posted above.

With 3 host countries and a whole summer, you'd figure they can handle some extra games

I wish they would stagger the start times some. The games ending at the same time is dumb

I was just thinking the same thing. But I guess they don't want a team to have an advantage of knowing they are already moving on and then be able to rest players because they don't need the points.
oh no

If the Germans win, doesn't Spain advance on GD?

Oh, and I'd be OK with 48 teams if they kept groups of 4. I'm actually much more disappointed in destroying the group stage than I am the expansion.

The announcers from the two games are saying two different things as far as who advances if results hold.

Why would Spain try to score? They are in a position to get second in the group with the easier path.

Now if spain ties japan here, and germany stays 3-2, I think Japan is out
But Japan beat Germany heads up, so maybe not
