Four Euro 2020 spots up for grabs in Nations League

Four Euro 2020 spots up for grabs in Nations League

England, meanwhile, could face a three-way group-of-death battle with Germany and Holland to avoid one of the biggest names in European football finding themselves in UEFA's newly-named "League B".

Chris Coleman's side had been on course to challenge the likes of England, Germany, Spain, Italy and France for the inaugural title in European football's third major worldwide competition but lost out by less than 600 coefficient points.

The top four-ranked teams that do not qualify for Euro 2020 will contest a play-off in March 2020, with one finals place on offer.

Germany, Portugal, Belgium and Spain are the top seeds and can not play each other, with France, England, Switzerland and Italy in pot 2.

Each division will be split into four groups of three or four teams, who will play each other.

Honestly, Pies had completely forgotten about the imminent implementation of the UEFA Nations League, which is basically UEFA's attempt to address the dwindling appetite for the surfeit of meaningless friendlies that now clog up the global calendar.

Uefa says teams in three-sided groups will play on four of the six matchdays.

While Trump's relationship with the press likely represent a new low among presidents in the modern era, there are parallels. Trump said his administration would "look at breaking that deal up", but hasn't followed through on the threat.

Wales just missed out on League A, edged out by Netherlands, with Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland also in League B with them. However, if a whole league does not have enough teams for a play-off, which is conceivable in League A, then the places will be filled by the best-ranked teams from the league below.

The League of Nations.

Uefa has confirmed the line-up of each of the four leagues that make up the inaugural Nations League, the European competition created to replace most global friendlies.

The overall Nations League rankings will also be used to decide the seedings for Euro 2020 qualifying.

All the teams has been split into four levels, with one team from each League guaranteed a spot at Euro 2020. The winners of each group will be promoted to league above and the losers will be relegated.

UEFA said it hopes that the new competition will strengthen global football across the whole confederation.

The winners of the four groups in League A will qualify for the Final Four competition.

After a traditional Euro 2020 qualification determines the first 20 participants, UEFA will use the Nations League tables to determine the last four teams to join them - one from each League.
