    UEFA Nations League

    C:C from wikipedia

    The 2018–19 UEFA Nations League will be the inaugural season of the UEFA Nations League, a planned international association football competition involving the men's national teams of the 54 member associations of UEFA.[1] The competition, which will be held from September 2018 to June 2019, will also serve as an additional qualification tournament for the UEFA Euro 2020, awarding four of the twenty-four final tournament slots.
    /C:C

    This "competition" is expected to replace most european friendly matches. There will be four divisions, each composed of about 4 groups of four teams. Each division winner will earn a place at the euro regardless of their qualification campaigns. If the whole thing is deemed a success, it will take place every other year.

    To me it looks like overcomplicating things, also games might become more intense, dunno if it's a good or bad thing.

    4 divisions of 4 groups of 4 teams? That's 64 teams. UEFA has only 54 FA's. What the hell? Does this open up the possibility of guest teams like Brazil/Argentina/etc. in the Euros?

    It's all pretty vague still. Don't think the actual Euro will ever feature non european teams though.

    Why does everything Platini puts forth have to be retarded ? The white card isn't a bad idea at all, and it certainly wasn't coined by Platini.

    This is like saying the USA shouldn't restrict gun sales because you know, 'Merica.
    Dismissing the idea of a white card before even thinking of its possible applications, and the way it would be introduced and how it would affect the game and other cards ( all of which are so variable i'd tip my hat off to anyone listing all the options and potential consequences ) is, well, short-sighted.
