True. 😂

We might actually be better off if we can scrape into pot 2 as the best placed runner up. It would mean we have a better chance of winning our next Nations League group which might get us a World Cup playoff. 

I would still rather get promoted to be fair. 

That's how it worked last time, right enough.

The next WC has 16 European teams, so they will have lots of options how to do it next time round. The might go for 10 Group winners and then 10 runners up plus 2 Nations League teams have a straight home and away play off. It depends on how many game they want to schedule, so it will be down to TV rights (as usual). If they want more games they might go with 10 runners up plus 8 Nations League teams in 6 x three team mini groups? Loads of permutations they could go for.

Let's just get into League A, then see if we can get into pot 1 for the WC draw. 😉😂

Yeah who knows how they’ll work it. 

Only thing about getting into League A would be the possibility of getting 6 pumpings which would affect our world ranking and therefore our seeding for the next World Cup qualifiers. 

It’s a pity the Nations League doesn’t decide the seeding pots for the World Cup as well as the euros as getting promoted would ensure we were in pot 2 at worst for the next WC draw.

If UEFA want to increase the profile of the Nations League they might want to change that? They would need FIFAs permission though, so that would depend on the size of the broon envelopes.

I doubt FIFA would be into it. They’d be terrified in case the likes of Hungary (and maybe even Scotland?) got into pot 1 ahead of teams like England and anyone else from the teams FIFA really want to get to the World Cup that might end up getting relegated from League A. 

UEFA don’t mind because the top teams will generally always make the euros regardless of whether they are pot 1 or pot 2.
