Portugal- Euro 2016 winners

Armenia was in Pot 2 of League D. According to the draw, Artur Petrosyan's athletes will compete with Gibraltar, Liechtenstein and Macedonia.

Scotland, who are still without a new manager, will play in League C and were drawn into a three-team Group One against Albania and Israel.

When all games have been played, the four group-winners in Leagues B, C and D will gain promotion to the the league above.

The new competition has been introduced to boost the flagging interest in global football around Europe - in particular in friendly fixtures, with the notion of doing away with them entirely.

Group two features Belgium, Switzerland and Iceland, while group three is comprised of UEFA Euro 2016 winners Portugal, Italy and Poland.

Wales have been pitted against Republic of Ireland and Denmark in League B, with Northern Ireland landing ties against Austria and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

An added bonus of the UEFA Nations League is that it will offer teams another chance to qualify for the UEFA EURO 2020 final tournament, with four sides from each of the four leagues qualifying through play-off matches, scheduled for March 2020.

Games will be played in September, October and November on the usual national-team match dates protected by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

"I think there's a real buzz about it because the top level teams want competitive games and the teams in the other leagues get a realistic challenge too".

Turkey Steps Up Offensive Against Kurdish Militia in Syria
The UN Security Council has been meeting to discuss the operation, as well as the wider humanitarian situation in Syria. France's request for the emergency meeting comes one day after the Turkish operation against the YPG began.

Group winners in League A will play a Final Four mini-tournament in June 2019 to decide the Nations League champion.

Plus, the UEFA Nations League could soon feed into a Global Nations League that will easily trump anything Woodrow Wilson ever accomplished.

In the most highly-anticipated League A, World Cup holders Germany are placed in Group 1 with France and Netherlands. Now lower-ranking teams have an additional motivation to make it to the European Championship.

The first one will take place in June 2019. Each A, B and C league will play four matches in six rounds in the fall of 2018.

We look at how the Uefa Nations League works and the full draw.

The 29-year-old right-back made his comeback for the Everton U23s against Portsmouth, at Goodison Park last night 10 months after suffering a double-leg break on World Cup duty.

However, should a nation have already qualified, their place will go to the next highest-ranked team from their Nations League tier.

As a result, Northern Ireland swerved a potential grouping with the Republic of Ireland, who were instead pitted against Denmark in Group B4.
