The start of EURO 2020 is just over 100 days away, but this week’s focus is on the draw for the UEFA Nations League. The draw will start with the ceremony tonight at 18:00 in Amsterdam.
This is the second edition of the Nations League. Portugal clinched the first title in 2019.
It took time to get to grips with the format, but ultimately the inaugural competition proved a breath of fresh air and concluded with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal hosting and winning the finals in June 2019, beating the Netherlands 1-0 in the decider.
