Sound of Football Podcast 293 - The Nations League

The Nations League is on its way! UEFA's solution to uncompetitive matches and too many unnecessary friendlies. A two-year cycle of promotion and relegation, a new alternative to qualification play-offs, and a shiny new cup for Europe's elite to battle for, are just some of the promised benefits when it kicks off in September 2018.

And what better time to discuss this than during an international break — a time when the term "meaningless friendly" is never too far from the thoughts of many observers.

On this week's podcast, Graham, Terry and Jan attempt to unravel the complexity of the new tournament and how it will sit in the qualification process of the pan-national Euro 2020 and subsequent competitions. Strap yourselves in — it's going to be a wild ride.
