Searched but couldn't find any so starting new thread.

Chanced upon the inaugural UEFA Nations League game bt Germany and France...then realised it leads to the Euro 2020 tournament by 2019.

Both teams played like they were in WC...Germany appeared very changed. Could had won by at least three goals if not for France stand-in keeper whom saved at least 5 almost certain attempts in the second 45mins.

Sane came on in the last 10mins of the game but couldn't make much impact. Germany number 9 was excellent on the left flank beating franch number 2 right back numerous times to create dangerous crosses...

Muller had a great chance but he tried to volley a shot instead of a header...team mates were not happy about it.

The French had little chance but still outstanding in terms of defence. Their shape was impressive with constant shifting to close down the Germans advance. They could had 5 up front to force their opponents to play long ball knowing they could be quick with short and rapid passes.

The Germans nearly lost the game 2s after injury time though when a defender cleared a ball in the box but bounced off a french player and the ball beat Neuer but went over the crossbar.

I edited the title to reflect as UEFA Nations League 2018/19 and Euro 2020 as they are connected as the 4 group winners of the Nation League will automatically qualify for Euro 2020.

This is the worse kind of marketing ever.

 

Confuse people only.

 

Call it Euros 2020 and I am very interested and will watch.

 

Call it Nations League and many people will give it a miss.

 

Its as bad as the wedding advert. A guy at a wedding shouting

 

my parents are the worse parents ever. They are stupid idiots.

 

Please lah at a wedding don't shout at your parents lah and 

 

embarrass your relatives only.

 

These days every dumb idea also marketing people will do and

 

their clients not knowing any better pay for it.

 

:D

Maybe the ad makers read my MIL jokes and copied

 

the concept for their ad but it doesn't work because it

 

a totally different context. 

 

They have to use the concept in a correct context if not

 

instead coming out funny and witty it comes out as a

 

lack of respect and distasteful.

 

:D

Giroud finally ended goal drought with a left kick some more. 2-1 against the Dutch.

Rashford beat his MU colleague once but denied thrice by the same colleague. 1-2 against the Spaniard.

Poor Iceland got hammered by the Swiss 6-0. Unbearable to watch how they were easily torn apart with low crosses...

Think the idea was to make games more competitive by grouping similar strength teams n also to do away with friendlies though friendlies will still be around but much less.

In fact, there is talk of this Nations League starting in all the confederations n with the 8 winners playing off in a mini WC to replace the current Confederations Cup. And with the WC expanding even bigger likely from 2026, some gloss might be taken off the real WC with so many teams just making up the nos. n the hope is that the winner of the global Nations League can claim to be true “World Champs” ? Well that’s what some critics of the expanded WC hopes for.

wah ha ha... so everybody - at every level - is thinking of ways to change things, likely to their benefits.

 

not too long ago, there was discussion among the traditional big European teams to form a rival to UCL, which will benefit those big teams in competitive leagues who had problems squeezing into UCL. It would supposedly leave out the league champions of the smaller leagues, which means only the supposed elites are involved. That would definitely hit UCL hard if it went through.

Ya as usual $ is the overriding factor. UEFA came out with this Nations League idea n now FIFA wants to “steal” it by overseeing the proposed global Nations League much to the annoyance of UEFA esp as FIFA President Infantino used to head UEFA n oversaw the birth of UEFA Nations League.

If the Global Nations League does take place eventually, FIFA’s coffers will only get bigger much to chagrin of Confederations like UEFA. So yes money as always the root of all evils n esp so at the already tarnished FIFA.
