    What is this Nations League? Does it replace the Euro qualifiers? How does it work?

    All I know is that its got a crap theme music.

    I think it's a very good idea- much better than friendlies.

    the lyrics to that theme tune are beyond bland:

    Cui manet fortuna? (Who will have fortune?)
    O, cui aeterna gloria? (Oh, who gets the eternal glory?)
    Sit optimo victoria! (May the best win!)
    Dies luxit (The time has come!)

    Una! (Unite!)
    Lude! (Play!)
    Certa! (Struggle!)
    Una! (Unite!)
    Praesta! (Lead!)
    Vince! (Win!)

    Omnes gentes! (All people!)
    Iunctae gentes! (People unite!)
    Omnes gentes! (All people!)
    Hanc in lucem (Stand in the light)
    Omnes gentes! (All people!)
    Fortes gentes! (Strong people!)

    Una prodite (One purpose)
    Excellite (Excel)
    Omnes gentes! (All people!)
    Iunctae gentes! (People unite!)

    Omnes gentes! (All people!)
    Consistite (Stand together)
    Omnes gentes! (All people!)
    Iunctae Nationes! (All nations unite!)

    Dies venit (The time has come!)
    O, dies luxit (Oh, new day!)

    No. Euro qualification gets squashed in to an 8 month period the year before the tournament. The top 2 teams out of the 10 groups go through. The remaining 4 teams come through Nations League playoffs between the highest play team in each league who haven't already qualified. This means a 4th division team will play at Euro 2020, fuck knows why Uefa believe that part of it is a good idea. :confused:

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    Absolutely crazy idea which completely devalues the competition, it also introduces the possibility that losing games this year is better for qualification, get relegated and then turn it on against the lesser nations.

    What this tournaments seems to mean is that you can now only watch England games on Sky. You can watch the highlights on ITV but crucially, NOT online, either live or on catch up.

    Which is fucking wank.
