Italy dominated that game though. They hit the crossbar at least three times in the 1st half and actually looked like a team for the first time under Mancini.

France did end up beating Germany 2-1 so the slide continues for them.

Wales beat Ireland 0-1 with a great free kick from Harry Wilson, Ireland have only won one out of their last nine so they're on a slide too.

So its the climax of the League version of the first ever Nations League over the next few days, teams can get promoted to higher divisions or relegated to lower divisions, the top four teams from groups in the top division (Division A) will meet in semi finals and final next Summer to determine the winner.

Teams already relegated.
Iceland (A to B)
Poland (A to B)

Teams already promoted
Ukraine (B to A)
Georgia (D to C)

I'm not going to mention which teams could go down or up as there are so stuff that needs to happen that I cant mention it all here, but I will keep you updated on what's happening over the next few days.

The games start tonight, or now because Kazakhstan and Georgia just finished 1-1!

Wales v Denmark tonight with the winners finishing top of the group and getting promotion, a big game and Cardiff will be rocking!

France can make the semi finals tonight with a win over Netherlands.

Croatia beat Spain 3-2 in the last few minutes last night meaning their game with England on Sunday is winner takes all.

Netherlands, Portugal, England and Switzerland advance to the semi finals next year, they will take place between June 5-9, location is currently unknown, it has to be neutral for all the teams involved of course, I reckon it'll be Germany.

Guaranteed minimum of a Euro 2020 play-off place. Every Group winner will get that.

Although the Euro 2020 qualifying and play-off stages are fundamentally inexplicable now, largely thanks to Nations League but also due to the fact that there's 12 host nations for Euro 2020, and the limitations on who can be drawn against who and when. It's genuinely bewildering... I'm glad I'm not the person that creates the thread for it every four years.



Wait...

The Ronaldo show puts Portugal through to the first Nations League final, that free kick was brilliant.

Netherlands v England a bit later in the other semi final, certain England fans were being idiots by fighting Police in Portugal last night.

As for the game tonight, Kane and Henderson might be rested after playing the Champions League final, Sterling set to be captain on his 50th cap.

It seems that England doesn't know that in the extra time you're supposed to keep on playing football.

Jordan Pickford the first Englishman to score and save a penalty in a competitive shootout.
