    If the World Cup 2022 increases to 48 teams, with AFC receiving 8.5 spots, I would assume the qualification path would change from the current 3 round process.

    Not necessarily. They can do the two-legged ties to go down from 46 to 40 and then run the 8 group stages of 5 teams each, with the top 2 advancing to 4 groups of 4, top 2 qualify for the WC and then just have the top finishing third place team go the the inter-confederational playoff.
