I like this tournament! Four teams per group meaning 6 games in total rather than the 10 or twelve in Fifa World Cup and Uefa Europa Cup. International games no longer mean much when so many are rather pointless. I accept that England vs Andorra or ~Gibraltar might help the game a bit, but surely it should be more like the FA Cup. The UEFA Nations League does this – cuts down the number of International Games and make the fixtures more relevant. So Italy vs Spain tonight, not on telly though, Italy favourites, but I wonder if the present demise of Barcelona might lead to more local talent coming through? I would guess one goal will settle it? Then tomorrow Belgium vs France – will Belgiums talented generation win something at last?
