🤪 complicated  

Who makes the play-off is based on performance in the Nations League, rather than in actual Euro 2020 qualifying.


As it stands, 16 teams have already won a place in the play-off stage.


They are the winners of each Nations League group:


Switzerland, Portugal, Netherlands, England, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ukraine, Denmark, Sweden, Scotland, Norway, Serbia, Finland, Georgia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Belarus.


But if they go through automatically?...


If one of those 16 teams already in the play-offs wins an automatic spot for Euro 2020, their play-off place will of course have to go to somebody else.


It will be taken up will be taken by the next best-ranked team in their Nations League tier.


So for example - if England qualify, their play-off spot could end up with Iceland - assuming they have failed to also qualify.


Effectively this means that there will be a place for a team from each tier of the Nations League:


From the bottom tier, one of Georgia, Macedonia, Kosovo and Belarus will definitely be at the finals.

Fuck all that. Let me know when there's a big shiny cup given out after the match and I'll tune in.

Relatively tough group. Excuse my ignorance but when did Kosovo have a football team.

Last year I think.

I’m not even sure they are fully recognised as a independent country yet.

‍They are by everyone except Serbia I think.

Presume there will be no issues between Montenegro and Kosovo. Says Montenegro recognises Kosovo as a separate country on Wikipedia.

England will play Holland in the Nations League Semi-Final. Should be a good match.
