We have a success to praise …
No, it’s not the VAR.
Bless the UEFA Nations League! It has come to make the stoppages of selections more fun. The last great success of the world of football.
The competition replaces the friendly matches by official commitments, in addition to being taken into account for the classification of the next European Championship.
The main detail to take into account is the division applied to the countries; they were separated according to their position in the FIFA ranking.
That is an equitable and much more attractive competition.
Although Luxembourg has won 4-0 on the first date, but that is another story.
The tournament is made up of 4 leagues (A, B, C, and D). In turn, the leagues are divided into groups with the following purpose:
The four winners of groups in the A league will qualify to a semifinal.
The first classified in the other leagues will ascend to the next division. Therefore, the last descent.
A very smart proposal from UEFA. They strengthen the product, make it more attractive and add excitement to quite a ‘dead’ eliminations in recent years.
Somehow you had to compete to the best playoffs in the world, huh?
Of course, the A League has left real matches between the world powers … And this just on the first day.
It should be noted that this will be the case in each of them. That is, there will always be giants duels.
First day: France – Germany. The last two World Champions.
By the way, that match was frightening. But it’s always good to see so many stars in the same field.
Any other good thing about the UEFA Nations League?
Scouting is very favored with this competition. The D league will enjoy many looks, for example, there is no doubt that it will be a great counter.
The advantage comes when you see a more close competition at all times.
Here we all win.
