England in top tier of new UEFA Nations League

England in top tier of new UEFA Nations League

The event changes European Championship qualifying, with one team from each Nations League division to reach Euro 2020, with the other 20 places going to the top two sides from the 10 groups of the subsequent, traditional qualifiers.

Chris Coleman's side had been on course to challenge the likes of England, Germany, Spain, Italy and France for the inaugural title in European football's third major worldwide competition but lost out by less than 600 coefficient points.

Group games will be followed by semi-finals involving the four group winners and a final to be played in June 2019.

That means missing out on the potential for games against Germany, Italy, Spain and England, who are among the dozen teams to qualify for League A.

Organisers will use the UEFA ranking system to determine the make-up of four leagues (A, B, C and D) from the 55 teams involved.

Investigators trying to establish the motive for the attack have had little more to chase than hints and shadows. It should be noted that even President Obama's daughter Malia was even in attendance at Lollapalooza .

The Supreme Court, earlier on October 6, had reserved its order on the review petition over lifting the ban on firecrackers . Therefore it also ordered that a relevant agency compute the impact of a noise-and smoke-free festival this year.

The top four-ranked League B teams that do not qualify for Euro 2020 will enter play-offs in March 2020, with one finals place on offer. The four group winners will be promoted to League B, with the four bottom sides relegated to League D for the 2020 edition.

How teams perform in the Nations League will be used to determine which pots they will be placed in for future European qualifiers for the Euros and the World Cup.

Instead that will be delayed, and start in March 2019 and end in November of that year - the qualifying draw does not take place until December 2018.

Teams will be drawn into four groups of four.
