SPAIN and England are set to go head-to-head in the inaugural UEFA Nations
Both teams join Croatia in Group four of League A – the last group of the best teams in Europe.
The UEFA Nations League is a football competition designed to match similarly ranked teams against one another in a league system.
All 55 European footballing nations have been divided into four separate leagues (A to D) depending on their ranking, which in turn are split into four groups.
With 12 teams in each league, playoffs are scheduled for September in the supposed ‘empty’ seasons – where there is no World Cup or European Championship.
But only one can finish top of the group to be promoted into the knockout stages of the final four teams to decide the Nations League winner in June 2019.
