Our guide explains everything you need to know.
What is the Nations League?
The UEFA Nations League is a new biennial international football competition for the 2018 - 2019 season. It includes all 55 UEFA national football teams and replaces the traditional international friendly format, to ensure all games are fiercely completed - with all teams having something to play for.
How does the Nations League work?
The 55 teams are split into four leagues A, B, C and D, and then divided into four groups within these leagues. There are three or four teams in each group, with nations playing each other home and away. Group winner in Leagues B, C and D are automatically promoted to the division above, with those finishing last in A, B and C, relegated.
The winners of the four groups in League A qualify for the much-anticipated Final Four competition – taking place in June 2019.
Who are England facing?
England face an incredibly tough task to top their group. Facing former World and European champions Spain, and 2018 runners-up Croatia – who have a point to prove after coming so close in Russia.
It’s a big ask, but with a young crop of players fresh from a best-in-a-generation performance in this summer’s international action, England have every chance of advancing to the Final Four.
