So no dedicated playoff place for Division 2 of the Nations League then, both spots potentially going to Division 1. There might be an argument for getting relegated from Division 2 in that case, would result in a playoff that avoids the top 32 teams in Europe for Euro 2024.

Ya but there is only 16 Nations in League A. 10 teams will qualify directly for the World Cup via the traditional qualifiers. It is likely that all those teams will be from league A. 10 teams will also qualify for the playoffs via the traditional qualifying campaign. It is very likely that they will be all attained by League A and B teams. The 2 Nations League spots will likely end up being taken by League B teams.

Russia banned from WC 2022, UEFA will let them play in Euro 2020 and 2020 Nations League, another dimension/permutation/complication to the already convoluted Nations League😁

Works well if we get them means more chance of a playoff anyway.

better chance of being a Pot 2 team, although we really need to qualify for that to be the case.

Would a semi final victory do much for our Pot 2 chances?

likewise if we lose we REALLY don't want the North winning as they'd probably go above us

edit: actually there's so many playoff teams in pot 3 that if we lose the semi we're almost certainly going to drop into pot 3

Well, while they will take part in the Nations League, they won't be in the qualifiers proper. It doesn't change much, tbh.

At least if UEFA throw us out, we'll have some opposition to play against.
