The Nations League kicks off this week as Spain host Italy 2-1 to reach the latest World Cup final.
Eventually, they would meet in Belgium or France.
This is the second edition of the National League, as well as Portugal – who are currently ineligible – to win the title in 2019.
Who is playing, when and where?
Tali, who spent four games and four games in the final, beat Spain at the San Siro in Milan in the first round. This was a rematch of the Euro 2020 finals which Italy won on penalties.
Next season for Spain is the final against Belgium or France, who will meet on Thursday at Juventus’ Allianz Stadium (19:45).
This tournament is a rematch of the 2018 World Cup final, where France beat Belgium 1-0.
“You can’t compare the Nations League to the European Championship or the World Cup, but it’s a trophy for the big four competing nations. If we can win it, it will be the glory of this team.” Witsel said.
“This competition is here, it could be worse than the last round in Russia,” said France coach Didier Deschamps.
Italy will host the winners of Thursday’s clash between Belgium and France in late Sunday’s clash for third place in Turin (14:00 BST).
Spain will meet the winner at the San Siro at 19:45 BST.
Belgium, number one in the world, has not won an international competition since the 1920s.
This last program was scheduled for June but had to be moved due to the reorganization of Euro 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
How far has this group gone?
2020/2021 World Cup was held in September, October, and November last year and the winners of each of the top teams qualify for this final tournament.
England reached 2019 final, but this time finished third in Group A2 behind Belgium and Denmark.
Italy finish consistently in their own group, one point ahead of the Netherlands.
France, surprisingly, dropped three points in Portugal. Spain is two points ahead of Germany.
Neither of these teams arrived at the end of 2019.
How about international cup certification?
These matches have no impact on the World Cup qualifying competition.
The four teams in question are in the fifth group instead of six and have played other matches in the last two national holidays, so other teams can join them.
The two biggest League Cup winners, who did not finish in the top two of the World Cup, will enter the Qatar 2022 tournament, but will not be affected by the League Cup.
What’s the value?
A National League team – including the 55 UEFA nations – has been formed to replace international teammates in important matches, including promotion and relegation.
The final competition looks like a real competition, where the winner receives a silver medal, 7.5kg and 71cm tall.
Oh, and the prize money. The winner receives €10.5 million (nearly £9 million), as well as €9 million for second place, 8 8 million for third place, and 7 7 million for fourth place.
This includes participation money and grants for winning their team.
Will There be Nations League?
Yes. The Nations League 2022-23 team planning will take place on December 16 in Montreux, Switzerland.
