NANNING， China， Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- Chinese national team coach Marcello Lippi on Friday hailed FIFA's decision to expand 2026 World Cup to 48 teams as it will provide chances for more teams to compete on the world stage.
"I'm optimistic about the change. It's always good to have more teams to take part in the World Cup，" said the former Italian team boss， "although the World Cup finals will have more teams， the numbers of qualifiers will still be the same. I hope there will be more teams to compete at the World Cup."
China will play against Croatia for the third place on Saturday following a 2-0 defeat to Iceland in the opening game of the 2017 Gree China Cup International Football Championship. Lippi is unsatisfied with the physical condition of the Chinese players.
