Congratulations to Portugal, well deserved as they were the best team during their two games.

With the 3rd/4th place play-off the top four looks like this.

1. Portugal
2. Netherlands
3. England
4. Switzerland

Portugal's Bernardo Silva won player of the finals award.

Netherlands' Frenkie De Jong won best young player.

Not sure what to do with this thread now, as far as I know the next Nations League is not till 2021.

Someone else POSTED!!!! :cheers: 👍👍

That's more of a second string Czech team, they had to name another squad for tonight after a few players tested positive from the original squad, they tried to get the game called off but UEFA said no, the new squad features just two capped players in the 24-man team.

Belgium hammered Iceland 5-1 whilst England laboured to 0-0 away to Denmark in the same group.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th and 101st goals for Portugal against Sweden and both goals were stunning, he is the first European player to score 100 or more goals for a nation.

Spain battered Germany 6-0 tonight, pure dominance from Spain, Germany had zero shots on target and it wasn't a weakened Germany at all. Werner, Sane and Gnabry started up front.

This run of the Nations league is almost finished as the group stage concludes, France and Spain have qualified for the play offs after topping their groups in the top division, Belgium need to avoid defeat to Denmark tomorrow night to qualify. Italy can qualify with win over Bosnia but Netherlands might have something to say about it as they are only a point behind and play Poland, who can also qualify!

There is a big game for Wales who can win promotion to the top groups if they avoid defeat to Finland tomorrow, I'll post a proper round up of whos gone where after tomorrow night's games.
