Should have had 12 groups of 4 and allowed the 8 highest ranked 3rd placed sides into a last 32 knockout.
I get that it is not the best, but highest ranked teams is a flawed thing.
Imagine goal difference against easier teams getting teams through.
They should have had 64 teams instead of 48.
It's just one more game if last 32 will be the first knockout game, instead of last 16
Just have more games on during group phase, 6 a day instead of 3.
