UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin wants European football to resist FIFA's wish for biennial World Cups. The proposal was formally put by Saudi Arabia’s football federation in May at the annual meeting of FIFA’s 211 national members. (More Football News)

“More is not always better,” Ceferin cautioned on Monday. “We think that the jewel of the World Cup has value precisely because of its rarity.”
