    I sometimes thought Healy might have been more suited to playing abroad.

    Post Mortem

    Some players just aren't suited for English football.

    Post Mortem

    Interesting profile of Serge Gnabry below, asking why he didn't make it in England, either under Wenger at Arsenal, or Pulis at WBA Though tbf, Wenger wanted to keep him and Pulis acknowledged his transformation. Anyhow, the article also includes this: Gnabry has scored 13 goals in as many appearances for his country, with a hat-trick in a 6-1 win over Northern Ireland during his last outing for Die Mannschaft. It led Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill to say Gnabry and Germany will have a big impact on next summer's European Championships. "Gnabry's goalscoring record is phenomenal," he said. "It's a mystery to me how English clubs didn't get more out of him." https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50556045 Having seen him do NI twice, as well as annihilating Spurs for Bayern in the CL, it is truly astonishing to me that the PL let him slip through the net

    Looks like they can play any qualifiers, but not the World Cup itself. Well, unless they compete as neutrals. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50716196

    Agreed, not much new in League B for us. I was quite happy we'd been relegated...

    Pretty uninspiring selections there to be honest. Austria / Finland or Serbia / NI / Bulgaria or Hungary or Romania would suit me personally.

    Ah right. I had forgotten that two NL teams will be added to the 10 WCQ Runners-up, to play off to provide the final 3 World Cup entrants from UEFA (alongside the 10 WCQ group winners): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2022_FIFA_World_Cup_qualification_(UEFA) Though presumably Russia will want to compete in as many international competitions as possible. Which would also help maintain their rankings with both UEFA and FIFA.

    They could still be eligible for promotion and relegation within the NL, there would be no point in them taking a possible WC play off spot from the NL though (if that format is maintained).

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    Don't see why that should be the case - surely you're either in the competition for as far as you get, or you're not?
  11. Richardh

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    Would they play in the NL but not be eligible for a play off place?

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    If Euro2020 is not a major sporting event (I think they may mean world event?), then the NL surely won't be either. But as your later post clarifies, they're out of the 2022 World Cup unless their appeal to CAS succeeds.

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    Just seen this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/50710598 So they are out of WC 2022
  14. eightball

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    But not Euro 2020 as it is not considered a major sporting event. What a joke! Dunno about the Nations League and the next World Cup though.

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    But not Euro 2020 as it is not considered a major sporting event. What a joke!

    Russia just been handed a four year ban from all major sporting events, so we might not be able to draw them now!

    Was in Moscow the last time and the visa was expensive. I think you now have to go in person to be electronically fingerprinted for the visa (London, Manchester or Edinburgh?) which will add even more £ for the trip.
  20. EalingGreen

    2020/21 UEFA Nations League

    Same here, both counts. And being extra selfish, I'd like somewhere in Russia other than Moscow/St.Petersburg

    Whoever dreamt those up must have been smoking pot. Scotland in the second pot? I know they won their group, but c'mon! Do I even have to ask what pot the Germans are in in League A (despite being relegated from League A)? Anyway, personally I'd like Russia Finland Israel as I've been to the rest of those countries (except Turkey which we can't draw).
