England will take their place alongside the heavyweights of Europe in league A when the inaugural Nations League starts in 2018, Uefa confirmed today as it outlined the format of the new competition.

It will also provide Ireland with a second chance to qualify for Euro 2020, if needed, with the four highest-ranked non-qualifying League B teams entering play-offs for one finals place in March 2020.

Division A: Germany, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Poland, Iceland, Croatia and the Netherlands.

The draw for the groups within each league will take place on 24th January 2018.

Euro 2020 will not only be the first contested over 13 different host cities as part of Michel Platini's grand plan for a celebration of 60 years of the European Championships right across the continent, it will also be the first major finals to feature deliberately what UEFA describes as "middle-ranking and smaller nations" as well as the game's elite.

There are four Leagues A, B, C & D, with teams placed according to their UEFA ranking.

Aside from this, the four group winners will earn promotion to League B and the four who finish bottom of their respective groups will be relegated to Group D for the 2020/21 tournament.

Qualification for every tournament is always the goal, but Euro 2020 will have an added incentive.
