UEFA Nations League Report: Germany v France 06 September 2018

Uefa Nations League: What is it and how will it work?

The competition will largely replace worldwide friendly matches now played on the FIFA global Match Calendar. It provides an incentive to all teams in Europe, from being able to win the cup to potential qualification to the next Euro.

The match started out with an early scare for France, as right back Benjamin Pavard, who scored the goal of the tournament at the World Cup, was inadvertently stepped on by surging Germany left back Antonio Rudiger.

UEFA believes all its member federations are getting something they like. India is shifting from a cricket loving nation to one where many sports are popular, it said. Each of the four Nations League groups A-D will be guaranteed a qualifying spot.

Low is also expected to make tactical changes, having admitted last week that a focus on dominant possession football was his "biggest mistake" at the World Cup.

A new phenomenon starts today called the UEFA Nations League - a brand new venture by Europe's governing body to get more people following worldwide matches.

Plus, the biennial format should be good for business.

It is quite confusing - I don't know what you guys think of it? Group 1 of League C has three teams while the rest have four and League D groups all have four teams each.

Southgate last week admitted the Premier League's shrinking pool of homegrown talent could force him to look outside the top flight to fill his England squad in the future.

Of course, it's entirely likely that there will not be four teams who have failed to qualify from League A, in which case they will be replaced by the next-highest ranked side that has not already qualified-with the proviso that group winners can't face teams from a higher league.

"We are all being specially observed and put under pressure, I am aware of that", Loew, who has been in charge since 2006, said last week.

The UEFA Nations League kicks off tonight amidst a sense of bewilderment among players, fans and media alike and there is little buzz for the European governing body's latest brainchild. That clears their June schedule for the mini-tournament. The remaining four places in the 24-team lineup will be decided in Nations League playoffs. The draw for the qualifiers of Euro 2020 will take place in Dublin's Convention Centre on 2nd December and the 55 teams will be divided into ten groups - five groups of five teams and five groups of six teams.

That means Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings will be drawn from progress and quality of opponent, not to mention the difference in gate receipts and the wider task of branding the global game or, such as in England's case, reconnecting the fans with the team.
