When do the proper games start?


I think there is some merit to this tournament. Four teams will qualify for the Euro 2020 Finals through it and it will also impact upon seedlings for the Euro group draw later this year. It’s far from perfect but a step in the right direction.


I'm warming to this tournament. I think its a great idea. Friendlies are so boring. Much better to dangle a carrot and make them competitive.

Is the ref f+cking English? That was not a penalty. Again all caused by Gunter's ridicules pass putting Bale under pressure.

A very poor decision for the pen but Denmark deserved the win.

Disappointed with Giggs subs but we are moving in the right direction. We faded quite badly at the end. Still we have a win and its all to play for. I'm pleased with what he's doing.

With the pool of players at their disposal in Wales I would say you are doing outstandingly well compared to Scotland who host a professional league system and is roughly the same size. it says alot for the standard of football north of the border when Wales are travelling to Denmark and the Scots are hosting Albania.

Watched Liechtenstein v Gibraltar last night, as have a soft spot for the country of Liechtenstein. Was a pretty entertaining game, capped off by a certain Sandro Wieser popping up with the second in a 2-0 win.

Really enjoying this competition, will always be 3rd priority for international managers but offers a balanced competition for nations of all levels.

So has the Nations League improved international football thus far?

Luxembourg top of their Group. Our Group, I mean.

Scored 7, conceded zero, six points

And a very strong chance of making Euro 2020.
