After the novel - and slightly surreal - thrill of witnessing England leaving it late to beat Croatia to secure top spot in the Uefa Nations League A, Group 4 table, you may now have a few questions about what it all means. In these uncertain times of labyrinthine international competitions, we might just have the answers you need. Well, that was exciting! Now what? By virtue of edging out Spain and Croatia to win Group 4, England have booked their place at the inaugural Uefa Nations League finals, which take place next summer, along with the three other group winners in League A: Switzerland, Portugal and either France or Holland (depending on how the Dutch get on against Germany in Gelsenkirchen tonight.) The Uefa Nations League finals? It's not over yet?! Nope, the aforementioned winners of the four top-flight groups will be drawn into two semi-finals, to be played in the Portuguese cities of Porto and Guimaraes on the June 5th/6th 2019.

Wales missed out on securing promotion to League A of the Nations League after being beaten 2-1 by Denmark at Cardiff City Stadium. Goals from Nicolai Jorgensen and Martin Braithwaite earned the Danes all three points in the Welsh capital, with Gareth Bale scoring a late consolation for Ryan Giggs' side. The loss to Age Hareide's men means Wales will finish second in Group 4 of League B, regardless of the outcome of Denmark's clash with Republic of Ireland in Aarhus next week. And it also means Wales' best chance of qualifying for Euro 2020 is now likely to come through the regular qualifying format, which runs from March to November next year. However, there is still the possibility that Wales could compete in the Nations League play-offs in March 2020, but it would depend on which sides qualify for Euro 2020 via the usual qualifying system. The sides who finish at the top of each group in Leagues A, B, C and D are all guaranteed to be in the Nations League play-offs should they … [Read more...] about What Wales’ defeat means for the Nations League & Euro 2020
