How Does the UEFA Nations League Work

The Nations League is a competitive UEFA competition that is divided into four divisions. Consider this as an alternative to International friendlies where teams have a good chance to win trophies (who doesn’t want one.)

The format divides all 55 teams into four leagues, which comprises League A, B, C, and D. Any national team that wins in League A will eventually play the finals in September 2021. All the teams will be promoted to League A that wins each group in League B, C, and D. Sadly, the teams will also be relegated if they fail to finish at the top half of the Groups.

It works just like League Divisions where the top teams who won the most points stay in the 1st Division, and the bottom three teams are relegated to the 2nd Division. This is an amazing concept and keeps the UEFA competition alive, and it is way better than International Friendlies.

The best part is two national teams have a chance to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Currently, Wales, Scotland, England, Republic of Ireland, and Northern Ireland are a few teams that belong to the top tier divisions.

Best Fixtures to Follow:

You can enjoy International clashes in the Nations League as some of the top teams fight head-to-head to qualify and win the competition or at least qualify for the World Cup. The defending FIFA World Cup champions, France, will play against Croatia just like they did in the 2018 final. For you, here is a brief review of the most important upcoming matches in the competition:

Germany vs. Spain: Although Germany failed to win the World Cup, the team is stronger than ever with players like Julian Draxler, Tony Kroos, and Reus who are in exceptional form. On the other hand, Spain has Thiago Alcantara and Ansu Fati who will be in the first team line up for the competition.

Netherlands vs. Poland: The Dutch coach, Koeman, has recently joined FC Barcelona as their head coach and will be a huge miss for the Netherlands this season. Although Poland is a notch below the Dutch side because Virgil Van Dijk, Memphis Depay, and Frenkie De Jong strengthen the defense and midfield.

England vs. Iceland: England will face off Iceland in their first match but there is some bad news for the United fans. Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford are both out of the first-team squad because of court allegations and injuries. The good news is some English players are looking to make their first team debut such as Kalvin Phillips, Maitland-Niles, Jack Grealish, and Conor Coady.

Portugal vs. Croatia: Three times Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo will play against his ex-teammate Luka Modric on Saturday the 5th of September. Both of the International teams have good squads with Croatia having an edge based on squad depth and talent.

UEFA Nations League Rules (What’s Different?)

There are a few changes in this UEFA’s edition. Each group has four teams now but in the 1st edition, there were only 3 teams. This means Northern Ireland, Germany, and Republic of Ireland are not relegated and now a part of the lower divisions. The rule is: 3 out of 12 International teams have a chance now to qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
