    Nope. Pretty much all the players in the national team play abroad so there's little chance of seeing them live. Plus the club sides continue to stink in the UEFA tournament qualifiers.

    Sergio Romero's a competent back-up.

    It's probably the last time the Nations League exist. What a total disaster.

    World class to competent is not going to help their cause.

    Not necessarily. They might just make changes.

    I'm for it actually, I just don't like how it relates to the Euro qualifications.

    It also isn’t going to get them relegated. Which was the premise of the original post.

    It's extremely unlikely but not 100% out of the question. The beautiful thing about sports is we never know what will the final outcome will be until it happens ;)

    Also please note I'm joking, I don't actually believe they will go down....

    You clearly are not understanding how amazing Romero is? He’s basically the best keeper in the world

    Turkey qualify after a listless 0:0 draw with Iceland at home, overall boring game, Turkey didn't really try to win the game and were comfortable for the most part as Iceland don't have much quality outside of set pieces (they almost scored in the final 10 minutes, goal line clearance). France as well qualify and have 1st place in their control now if they win their remaining two matches. Iceland have the playoff backup and will now hope the likes of NED/SUI/CRO qualify automatically or else they will play one of them in their playoff league

    The big match later today is Czech Rep vs. Kosovo which is essentially a playoff for 2nd place, its likely a match Kosovo need to win

    Penaldo

    Looks like he’s got his “vs Lithuania” game face on

    Anyway, 96 international goals 7 minutes into this one

    England up 5-0 over Montenegro at the half. Kane with a hatty.

    France at home is only level with Moldova who opened the scoring. They’ll probably score 3-4 in the second half though.

    Chilwell and Alexander-Arnold ran the first half. Chilwell was one of Klopp’s first targets and he would have fit like a glove at LFC.

    Leicester is going to make the CL and then get raided

    Czechs with 2 second half goals look like they’re going to get the pts and maintain their grip on second place over Kosovo going into the final match day.

    Chilwell with 3 1st half assists, a corner, fk and a nice pass to Chamberlain. Gomez came on at RB with TAA moving into midfield. Maddison should start over Mount.

    Apparently England fans were booing Joe Gomez. Are they daft? Booing the guy for being assaulted by some entitled wanna be thug, and restraining himself from reacting or smashing the guy? Oy.

    Group A
    England - Montenegro 7:0
    Czech Rep - Kosovo 2:1

    This group is done with one round to go, England win the group while the Czechs finish second, Kosovo guaranteed a playoff but their "glamor" tie against England at home is now pretty much meaningless. Bulgaria still have a shot at the playoffs despite being bottom of the group without a win in 7

    Group B
    Portugal - Lithuania 6:0
    Serbia - Luxembourg 3:2

    Easy win for Portugal as they need to beat Luxembourg away to qualify, Serbia almost embarrassed at home but managed to win. They must beat Ukraine at home on the final MD and hope Portugal somehow drop points. Serbia have the playoff backup, Luxembourg's chances are very slim now that Kosovo failed to qualify directly

    Group H
    Turkey - Iceland 0:0
    Albania - Andorra 2:2
    France - Moldova 2:1

    Turkey's draw earlier in the day meant both France and Turkey qualify, however with Turkey dropping points it now gives France the advantage for first place. Iceland will have a playoff spot but at the moment they have no clue who they will be playing. Andorra got 4 points so far in this campaign and while its very much baby steps they are a team who are starting to get some results in the last few years

    No mention of his sensational one touch goal from outside the 18?

    It was aight.

    No seriously, the guy has been a machine for Portugal scoring at well over a goal per game clip for the past 6 calendar years. I was being sarcastic with “vs Lithuania game face on” for the people who act as though every striker scores 4 and assists goals vs Lithuania every single game that Lithuania plays.

    Some people in Finland have said that making it to the Euro 2020 is the biggest ever team-sport achievement for Finland.

    Obviously there are hockey-fans or even basketball-fans who might slightly disagree.

    Football is obviously a bigger sport than basketball but the difference isn't big enough to say that being 24th in Europe in football is a bigger achievement than being 9th in Europe in basketball. If they make the round of 16 at the Euros next summer, there will be cause for debate.

    Some of these Finnish football hipsters think that winning your group in the Finnish 6th division in football is a bigger achievement than winning the Stanley Cup because hockey is such a minor sport.

    In a 24 teams Euro it is not. 16 teams Euro probably.

    And who would they beat to qualify? Greece, Armenia and Bosnia?Hardly world beaters.

    Gold Medals in hockey and silver at Olympics would still rank in front.
