I tried to understand what a UEFA Nations League is and how it worked.
Firstly, I went to the UEFA website: horse’s mouth and all that. And then, when my brain exploded thanks to lines like this:
Due to excessive travel restrictions, any group could not contain a maximum of one of these pairs: Andorra & Kazakhstan, Faroe Islands & Kazakhstan, Gibraltar & Kazakhstan, Gibraltar & Azerbaijan
I asked online for assistance, which came in the form of a link from The Guru. Thanks, The Guru.
Because yes, Football365 seem to have done a good job in attempting to simplify a rather complex format. And am I alone in thinking that UEFA might actually be onto something here? It actually looks quite good.
And there’s more great news for me too: Supersport – who failed to secure the rights for the English League Cup or the Championship – have managed to scrape some cash together to buy some UEFA Nations League goodness.
Tonight kicks off (quite literally) with the following fixtures:
Kazakhstan v Georgia
SS3 HD (4pm)
Armenia v Liechtenstein
SS3 HD (6pm)
Wales v Rep. Ireland
SS6 HD (8.45pm)
Germany v France
SS3 HD (8.45pm)
Slovenia v Bulgaria
SS11 HD (8.45pm)
Czech Republic v Ukraine
SS7 HD (8.45pm)
I know what I’ll be doing at 1800.
