UEFA considering international leagues

Recommended Posts

According to this link:

 

http://www.footballseeding.com/national-ranking-uefa/ranking-2017/

 

... our ranking prior to the commencement of the Euros puts us in League B for the UEFA Nations League. Euro performance & Workd Cup 2018 performance has yet to be added.

 

Each league is divided up into pools/groups. From Wiki, we'd be in group 4. Based on current rankings that'd have us in a group with Norway & the Republic of Ireland.

 

Obviously lots will change in the interim, but interesting to see it start to take shape.

Absolutely. Pints are shockingly expensive in Norway.

A couple of points from the ranking link.

 

If nothing changed the grouping with Norway, RoI and Wales is a seeding pot meaning we would not draw those teams, the opposition would be one from Cz, BaH, ROM and Slovakia as top seeds and one from POL. ICE, SWE and TUR as second seeds.

 

Note the position of France. As they had no qualifiers to play and therefore no points from the EURO qualifiers their 2018 WC qualifiers count double and they will no doubt overtake us. Having said that when the EURO finals points are added we should at least overtake Norway and so effectively remain in Division B before the WC qualifiers start.

Does it go on results of games played in the Euros? As we lost 3 of 4 then we might not gain too much. If it goes on progress in the competition then that would be better

According to this we are 46th, group d, obviously going to change by the end of the WC qualifiers so no point in trying to work out where we will be, saw a table on wiki that was from 30th June and slightly different.

Interesting format, the best teams will usually play each other and more than likely never drop lower than group b. Good way of spreading out the footballing wealth to the smaller teams who will probably never get out of group d.

That's the club coefficient. National team rankings are different.

Yeah funny that, when you search for a country co-efficient it takes you here

Yeah, it's pretty difficult to find the national team rankings on UEFA.com.

That's the FIFA ranking table. I was under the impression that ranking for the Nations League was using an UEFA ranking table?

Absolutely correct, we have actually dropped places. Now top seeds in Division C which has 2 groups of 3 teams and 2 of 4 teams (probably will end up 1 group of 3 teams and 3 of 4 now Kosovo are in UEFA).

General wondering, will they loosen the number of subs that can be used in these "glorified friendlies", maybe make it 5 instead of 3 or some such?
