I think that, apart from group 2, we can expect some amazing games!

 

I didn't think much of this new competition up to today, but, it actually looks quite exciting ! The final four will be a nice throwback of the early euro championships too.

I know there are 4 tickets for Euro 2020, they go to the winners of the 4 divisions? So basically this whole division A (with all top nations) get's one ticket, just like division D (with all 'worst' nations)? That's just stupid :d

Wait, no, the four group winners of League A will go to the Nations League Finals, so I suppose those 4 will get the Euro 2020 tickets?

Who cares about euro qualification anyway ? With 24 teams, it's a given for top teams nowadays. Oh wait... :p

 

Seriously, I do think this new competition could stand on its two feet and become a new genune international competition to cheer for.

Yes I think so too, but I'm trying to figure out how a nation can qualify for Euro 2020 from the 2018/19 Nations League. I know there are 4 available tickets, but not sure who gets them:

 

Option 1 --> The four League winners (so one from League A, B, C and D)

Option 2 --> The four teams in the Nations League Finals (meaning four League A teams)

 

Option 2 would by far make more sense, but I'm not sure.

Not quite, as it will serve as a second chance for non allready qualified nations.

 

The pathway is kind of complicated:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UEFA_Euro_2020_qualifying_play-offs

 

Yes, but isn't the Nations League finished before the normal qualifying is finished? In other words, no nation is qualified yet during the Nations League Finals? 

 

And even with that Wikipedia page I still don't know the main thing: which 4 nations will get the 4 available tickets for Euro 2020 via the Nations League? :d

If I get it right, we would only know the teams entering these play off matches only once the regular qualification phase is over, which is a year after the Nations League will be over :toast:

Yep, just checked:

"The top four ranked teams that do not qualify for UEFA EURO 2020 will enter a play-off in March 2020, with one finals place on offer."

 

Which is good for those big teams that surprisely dont qualify for the final phase (like Italy and Netherlands this year), they get a second chance

This is quite the suprise, Brisbane Roar being kicked out by a Philipines team. Bookmakers gave them odds of 30+ to win :d
