Spain putting 6 past finalists Croatia was certainly a shock result.

Is it me or is the Nations League going to be much harder in the future than currently when you have the likes of Italy and Holland (presumably) going down to Group B and some of the more irritating minnows such as Georgia coming up from the lower groups?

I was very sceptical about the Nations League but it seems to be a good edition to the international calender.

I really enjoy it for one!

I think it will eventually even out

For example, Iceland will probably stay in and around League B for the next couple of seasons.

I'd say the likes of England/Croatia, Poland/Italy, Netherlands will yoyo between A and B.

Can see ourselves being comfortable enough to do the same between B and C.

Macedonia and Georgia have shown already they are better then there League D placings so if they are involved there they will most likely get promoted.

So far I have loved it the lower leagues especially as there is so much on the line for them finish top you get promoted and guarantee yourself a passage to the Euros with two wins.

I've really enjoyed it so far and most teams seem to be taking it seriously. There's been some very good games and plenty of goals so far.

A most welcome addition to the international football calendar indeed.

Some great potential play-off finals on the cards in C and D.

Georgia or Macedonia for me in League D depending on draw I'd imagine they will be seeded

As for Group C

Bulgaria, or Serbia/Montenegro


Serbia/Montenegro- for the above do you think there would be any potential trouble at this?

Great start to the new format. As was universally accepted, anything is better than friendlies.

More likely that Spain's have kicked in!

If Scotland win their nations league group, and then finish 4th in the euro qualifying group, ok so they get a second chance/play off to get into the Euros?
 
Is this a two legged match?
 
Is this the same for all divisions of the nations league?

They will go into the playoff against the other highest finishing League C teams who haven't qualified.
They will play a semi final and final against two of the other placed teams.

Looking at the tables this is currently
Scotland, Finland,Bulgaria and Montenegro

the best and 4th placed teams play each in one semi the other two in the other and the winners then play each to qualify

so  at the moment

Scotland v Montenegro
Finland v Bulgaria


Yes this is the same for all divisions

Tadic with one of the worst penalties I've seen. Romania have man sent off for kicking Serb in the ear

Fraggle Rock had a surprise result too. How bad are Armenia? You would think Mkhitaryan would have had a field day against non-league players.

Serbia totally dominating this game. Should be winning comfortably. The co-commentator on Sky is one of the biggest moanbags I’ve ever heard.

Think they had 36 shots with 10 on target. 

What's depressing about that result is that Gibraltar beat them by the exact same score as we did in 2010.
