Four Euro spots up for grabs in Na­tions League

The Phnom Penh Post - - FOOTBALL -

FOUR Euro 2020 places will be on of­fer dur­ing UEFA’s new Na­tions League tour­na­ment, which starts next year, af­ter Euro­pean foot­ball’s gov­ern­ing body an­nounced the sched­ule on Wed­nes­day. The four­di­vi­sion for­mat means that one of Europe’s 16 low­est-ranked teams is guar­an­teed to qual­ify for the Eu­ros. UEFA first ap­proved the tour­na­ment in 2014, and has de­cided to split the 55 coun­tries into four so-called “leagues”, based on its co­ef­fi­cient rank­ings. The event changes Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fy­ing, with one team from each Na­tions League di­vi­sion to reach Euro 2020, with the other 20 places go­ing to the top two sides from the 10 groups of the sub­se­quent, tra­di­tional qual­i­fiers.
