first_imgBy Mark GleesonJOHANNESBURG, South Africa (Reuters) – Africa will be looking to double the number of places it has at an expanded World Cup, the continent’s football association presidents have told soccer’s world governing body FIFA.Africa wants at least 10 spots in the 48-team World Cup that FIFA president Gianni Infantino has proposed from 2026 as the continent gave a ringing endorsement to the expansion plans.“All associations back the idea to expand the World Cup and there is the hope that Africa can have 10 places in future,” South African FA chief Danny Jordaan said yesterday.That would be double the five places the continent has at the next two finals in Russia next year and Qatar in 2022.Europe is seeking a minimum of 16 places, up from 13, and wants its sides to be separated in the 16 opening round groups of three teams, with the top two advancing to a 32-team knockout phase under plans approved by FIFA last month.Asia is expected to get eight to nine places, compared to 4-1/2 now, and South America, which has 10 member countries, a total of six, also up from 4-1/2.The CONCACAF region, made up of the Caribbean, Central and North American countries, would get 6-1/2 places, compared to 3-1/2, with Oceania, the small Pacific Islands confederation, having one automatic place at the finals instead of 1/2.Inter-continental playoffs between countries with 1/2 a place would determine the additional spots at the finals.The final allocation of places must be passed by the FIFA Council.THREE-DAY SUMMITThe subject of the expanded World Cup featured prominently at a three-day summit between FIFA chief Infantino and more than 50 presidents of the African FAs.The talks were behind closed doors but FIFA officials told Reuters yesterday that Infantino had outlined plans for an expanded World Cup and new development assistance for member countries.It is the first time a summit of this type has been held, giving Africa’s FA representatives informal contact with the FIFA leadership, including the world governing body’s recently appointed general secretary Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura.“It has been a very good idea and a chance for the associations to also speak directly to the FIFA leadership about their issues and concerns,” said Ahmad, the president of the Madagascar Football Federation.Ahmad, who uses just one name, is running for the presidency of the Confederation of African Football against long-standing incumbent Issa Hayatou of Cameroon next month.The summit comes three weeks before the CAF elections in Addis Ababa on March 16 and the FIFA event in Johannesburg has been dominated by intense lobbying, delegates said.“Most of the business at this summit is actually outside of the conference room, in the corridors and the hotel lobby, as different candidates try to persuade associations to vote for them,” said one African FA chief, who asked not to be named.last_img read more

first_imgAt the same time, despite his weekend remarks, he has enjoyed his time in Detroit, so he very well could be trying to raise his trade value for the good of the team. Either way, Castellanos is pointing out something and that statement could easily influence some of the conversations about his game. We’ll see if this changes his worth in other teams’ eyes though and results in a deal.One thing is for sure though, if and when Castellanos leaves Detroit, he’s not going to miss Comerica.”I mean, they can move in center and right-center field,” he said. “There’s no reason I hit a ball 434 feet off (Nationals right-hander) Anibal Sanchez and it goes in the first row. That shouldn’t happen. But I’m not in charge of that either.” “This park is a joke,” he told reporters, via the Detroit News. “It’s to the point where how are we going to be compared to the rest of the people in the league in terms of power numbers, OPS, slugging and all that stuff when we got a yard out here that’s 420 feet straight across center field?”Castellanos was a top-10 prospect before he made his MLB debut in 2013, but he has never quite developed the power many evaluators thought he would. He was given a future 70-grade power by MLB Pipeline in 2013 which has been given to only a few players such as Miguel Sano with the Twins and Joey Gallo of the Rangers. Related News MLB trade rumors: Cubs interested in Tigers’ Nicholas Castellanos MLB trade rumors: Cubs, Braves may be looking at Tigers’ Nicholas Castellanoscenter_img Despite those projections, he has never hit more than 26 home runs at any level despite power numbers going up across the board in MLB. The 27-year-old seems to have an idea why, and he says opponents even point out part of the problem.”We’ll get on second base or third base and they’ll come up and be like, ‘Man, how do you guys do this?'” Castellanos said. “We play 81 games here, man. I don’t want to hear about the two you hit that are questionable.”To an extent Castellanos does have a point. He has 104 home runs in his career with 60 of those on the road. In his six-plus seasons with the Tigers at Comerica Park, he has hit a home run every 34.9 at-bats. In road games, he homers in every 26.4 at-bats.That is a difference, but it’s not a huge one. It probably comes out to about two home runs hit in an average per year (3,118 career at-bats at 26.4 ABs per home run = 118 career homers or 14 more in total over seven years).So how does this matter in the bigger picture? Castellanos, 27, is a free agent after the season, and it’s unlikely that he’ll re-sign with the Tigers. So Detroit is trying to trade him, and teams like the Cubs are interested. And if he wants to be traded, which he very well could, he might be trying to get better teams interested in him, leading to either a World Series chance this postseason or simply a chance to get with a team he could feel out and possibly consider re-signing with. Nicholas Castellanos is one of the Tigers’ two best trade chips, and he might be trying to help his value in an odd way.The Detroit outfielder hit a walkoff home run in Sunday’s 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, but he chose to vent his frustrations while speaking about the game.last_img read more
