I think many nations will send second, third or even fourth rate players to this and save the stars for more important competitions.

We should never have got rid of the Home nations championships, which were a successful tournament for a hundred years (barring the two wars and one year for civil unrest in Northern Ireland) between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

who on earth thought that lot up, it's a contrived mess. If it also means an end to friendlies in the proper sense, it removes the possibility of playing South American opposition other than in a competitive finals, or that's how it seems, but who knows with this shower of ****

^ I think they said before there's still going to be time for friendlies with, for example, South American teams.

In general I like the Nations League idea because I think friendly football matches are pointless.

There's a slightly weird twist though where one team from each of the four leagues will qualify for Euro 2020, which could result in a minnow team qualifying, or a team (maybe) trying to get relegated to a lower league to make qualification for the next Euros easier.

They tried bringing a version of that back with the Nations Cup in 2011 - England didn't take part, but it wasn't very interesting.

Wales produced an exhibition of sparkling attacking football as they thrashed the Republic of Ireland in their Nations League opener to give manager Ryan Giggs a handsome victory in his first competitive match in charge.....

I like the idea as it stops so many pointless friendly matches, and also makes the players get used to playing with each other more rather than having to quickly gel during a major knockout tournament when you've not played with each other before or on a regular basis.

I can't believe that the Referee's were incompetent yet again during an England game.

The fair result was 2-2 but clearly the goalkeeper can fall on top of our striker and still get the free kick rather than letting us have our goal that we rightfully earned.

Denmark players came back from their strike to win 2-0, btw. S4C was like watching Scottish football on BBC Alba, heh.
