  • UEFA Nations League 2018/20

    The draw for the first UEFA Nations League has seen the likes of Germany, France and the Netherlands grouped together in its top league.

    Belgium, Switzerland and Iceland, Portugal, Italy and Poland, and Spain, England and Croatia make up the other groups in League A. The remaining 43 teams have been split among groups in three further leagues based on UEFA seedings, each comprising of four sections apiece.

    With the group stage running between September and November 2018, the new tournament has been introduced to provide a competitive alternative to friendlies in Europe, allowing teams to face similarly-ranked sides, as well as offering relegation and promotion between leagues.

    The four League A group winners will contest at the Nations League Finals in June 2019, while the competition will also provide a secondary path to UEFA EURO 2020 for sides who miss out in the traditional ten-group qualifiers. The top two in each EURO 2020 qualifying group will qualify, with the top 16 sides based on Nations League rankings battling for the final four tournament spots through playoffs in March 2020.

          You have 4 leagues: A, B, C & D

          League A is like 1st division league, League B 2nd division etc ...

          - The four group winners in Leagues B, C and D are promoted to the next league up
          - The four third-placed teams in Leagues A and B are relegated to the next league down
          - The three fourth-placed teams and the lowest-ranking third-placed team in League C are relegated to League D


          - The four League A group winners participate in the finals (knockout phase) to determine the UEFA Nations League winner: a draw will be made and there will be 2 semi-finals, 3rd/4th place match and the final


          This tournament will also affect the Euro 2020 qualifications (I still don't know about it, I have to read the regulations)

              86 on FIFA is fitting though. Raktic, Hamsik and Grandpa Iniesta are definitely better than him

                  Remember when Bosnia destroyed Lichtenstein 8-0 away in WC 2014 qualifiers. Topped the group with 30:5 GD. Good old days

                    Grandpas are always overrated on FIFA. Their rating usually doesn't drop much after hitting the peak. Probably to avoid fans complaining.

                        Tolisso is expected to start tonight against Netherlands, according to RMC. Would be great for him to play whole 90 minutes tonight. Needs to get back in shape.

                          Tolisso is on the bench. Deschamps is a fraud.

                              Does that mean France are the new Spain? Can't stand another 8 years of ugly football.
