16 groups of 3 with the top 2 in each group advancing to a 32 team knock out format

16 groups of 3 sounds stupid.. Two game to determine who goes to knockouts? 12 groups of 4 makes more sense

Technically as of right now there has been no formal descision on if the host countries will all get automatic births but the consensus amongst the soccer community is that all 3 hosts will recieve births.

You figure both Korea and Japan got births with 32 teams so 3 births with 48 would make sense
