So England will have to play Croatia and Spain home and away?

That what happens?

So this is replacing friendlies?

From what I'm reading this sounds actually quite decent.

Fucking Ireland, the anti-football nation again. Joy. Denmark will be fun at least.

I like the look of the set up, with promotions and relegations.

Don't get it?

We'll still be getting Germany 7 Gibraltar 0 in Euro qualifiers

Friendlies previously organised were never usually massive mismatches at any level

It's likely even more players will be 'injured' prior to these than currently are, why would clubs want their players playing an extra competitive match when they could have a rest?

Just seems like a back door to get a big nation into the Euros if they screw up their actual qualifying campaign and therefore maintain the top commercial deals

International football is on it's arse, if this serves to boost quality and entertainment then it's job done.

But that's the beauty of the promotion/relegation... Andorra and Kosovo get the opportunity to work their way up the leagues.

Starting it with the 'stronger' teams in the top groups gives the 'smaller' nations a better chance, rather than just getting pummelled every game.

I like the idea of it.
