    Germany or Holland

    If the Germans beat the Dutch again then it'll effectively be a two legged playoff between us and the Netherlands to qualify (assuming the Dutch don't drop any other points).

    Germany or Holland

    So who do we want to win in the match between Germany and Holland on Sunday? I think I'm leaning towards a German victory and Germany running away with the group. That would mean Holland would only have 3 points going into the autumn matches and, although the Dutch will have played 2 matches less, we could be up to 9 points ahead of Holland come September (unlikely I know but realistically we will need at least 9 points from the first 4 matches to have any hope). Another German victory over Holland in September could then leave us 9 points ahead with 4 to play (5 for Holland). I think we are due some sort of result against the Germans but we're more of an unknown team to the Dutch so I reckon we'd have a better chance of getting a result and surprising the Dutch than the Germans. I appreciate this will be completely irrelevant if we lose against Belarus on Sunday...

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    There are 24 pool A/B teams with 8 pool A/B playoff places available. If 16 automatic qualification places come from pool A/B teams then the remaining 8 pool A/B teams will fill the other 8 play off places (we would be the last team to get a spot). Therefore we need at least 16 of the other pool A/B teams to gain automatic qualification for us to make the play offs.

    Euro 2020 Qualifying Draw

    We've been drawn into either Groups 3 (C) or 6 (F) in each of the last 11 WC/Euro qualifying draws. I find that incredible.

    South Korea tickets

    Probably a long shot seeing as tickets are still available on ticketmaster but we’ve now got one spare ticket for the South Korea game. North Stand Upper, Block S, Row F Ticket was £22 but would take less than that rather than it going to waste. If anyone’s interested then let me know.

    UEFA considering international leagues

    Thanks for posting the link and your explanation- it's definitely helped me to get my head around how it all works. The one part I'm still confused about is when they mention 'best ranked' or 'overall ranking'. What ranking are they referring to? The UEFA ranking? Eg in the second example they've posted, why are Scotland deemed to be the best ranked team ahead of Serbia, Romania and Albania when they've all finished 2nd in their respective groups?

    UEFA considering international leagues

    So what happens in the situation where say 10 of the 12 teams in League A qualify for Euro 2020 via the standard qualifiers so there are only 2 teams able to compete in the League A play-offs? Do 2 teams from League B take their place and, if so, how are these 2 teams determined? One of the objectives from the Nations League was to allow smaller nations the chance to qualify. If teams have to move up to the play-offs in the league above then surely this defeats the point? Eg. If we don't qualify via the standard qualifiers then I'd rather we were in a Play-off with other teams from League B rather than 2 teams from League A.
