Let’s be honest, most football fans considered the Nations League pointless when it began last in 2018. That’s since changed now that England are in the semi-finals.
Taking place in Portugal, the hosts played Switzerland yesterday, with England tonight facing the Netherlands. According to the Nations League rankings, England come fourth out of the four remaining contenders, however, fourth is also our FIFA World Ranking, which is the highest of the remaining teams, with the Dutch being the lowest at 16th.
While England failed to win the World Cup, we can still win this tournament and perhaps book ourselves qualification into Euro 2020 as well.
Netherlands v England is on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Football at 19.00 (kick-off 19.45).
