So WTF is Nations League?
It is a new thing, this is the third time it is organized, UEFA started it in 2018-19. It replaces the usual friendlies fixtures, creating a new competition.
Four leagues were made, with 16 teams in A, B, and C, and 7 teams in League D. The teams are sorted in these Leagues according to their rankings - for example Hungary started in C in 2018-19, then rose to B, and now plays in A. During each season each league is divided further into groups of four teams by drawing their participants. The winners of each groups in the lower leagues gets promoted to the next one up. The last one of each group in the upper leagues gets relegated to the next league below. The four group winners of League A participates in the knockout style League Finals - last time France became the champion.https://www.uefa.com/uefanationsleague/
Back to Hungary.
For now we played 3 matches, against England at home, Italy away, Germany at home. Beat England (3 points), failed against Italy, and X-ed against Germany (1 point).
Next is England, away (next Tuesday), then Germany, away again (in September), and then against Italy at home (in September).
Our chances ain't good, these are all fine teams.
Right our group looks like this:
1. Italy 5 points
2. Hungary 4 points
3. Germany 3 points
4. England 2 points
If England only gains 2 more points, then we are clear, because we either played a draw with them, or even beat them, so then we would have 5 or 7 points.
I think we have a good chance of gaining one more point, and a fair for two or three by drawing two matches or winning one. Getting three points with X-ing all three matches (two played away!) is very unlikely. I highly doubt we could gather 4 more points (1 draw, 1 victory), it is way more possible that we'll got beaten in all three upcoming matches. But I think we'll at least draw one.
To be honest till September I'll forget about this competition.
