Only realised today that the next tournament is going to have 24 teams, following the same format as the 86, 90 and 94 World Cups.
I'm not a huge fan of this for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, the Euros are generally, as a rule, of a decent standard on the group stage because there aren't as many 'minnow' sides as the WC. Adding 8 sides will dilute that and make for a less entertaining group stage.
Secondly, it is a format where 4 3rd place teams from the group stage go through. Not keen on that.
It does make us more likely to qualify though so its not all bad
