    Its bollocks yeah. On one hand it gives countries who wouldn't otherwise be able to host a tournament a chance to have it for a bit like Romania, Ireland, Denmark etc.

    On the other hand it's a pain for anyone who wants to take time off and follow their team around. And it could lack some of the host nation appeal. I dunno. The teams already travel around playing each other in different countries in the qualifying stages. So, it just seems unnecessary marketing ploy/money related to me.

    So both the 2018 and 2022 World Cups will take place at not-terribly-appealing locations for most travelling fans, and Euro 2020 will make it extra difficult/ more costly to attend multiple matches or host cities...

    Roll on 2026 World Cup, I guess :(

    Euro 2020: Wembley to host seven matches after Brussels loses right to host games

    So, Wembley gets four extra games (alongside the semis and final), while Wales doesn't get any.
    Gotta say, does seem weird the Principality (nee Millennium) Stadium wasn't selected. Never been there myself but by all accounts it's a very good stadium with good transport links, and would maintain the notion of visiting lots of different nations. Seven games including the semis and finals doesn't seem right, especially somewhere as uninspiring as Wembley.

    The Octagon Stop...Hammertime

    Denmark doing their best to liven up the international break by apparently fielding their futsal team (basically amateurs who do fancy stuff on a smaller pitch) against Slovakia and possibly Wales, due to an ongoing image rights dispute with the established international players.

    Nations League: Denmark set to field 'futsal' players against Wales due to dispute

    Bale could get double figures if this goes ahead, could be fun to watch.

    Also - fuck the futsal players for scabbing.

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    The qualifying system is fucking mad, its well complicated. I've been given a free ticket for England v Spain on Saturday in the Nations League or something which appears to be some sort of souped up friendly with a chance to qualify for Euro 2020 if you don't make it through the usual route. Fuck knows. I reckon the teams will still treat it as a friendly as they'll bank on themselves to get through their respective groups.
