If the Nations League didn’t blow your mind Sunday morning’s Euro 2020 draw in Dublin probably will … unless you read our guide to its almost endless permutations and caveats
If you have sat through a complex, multilingual draw, anxious to know who your team will face, muttering: “Just pick the damn balls,” at every needless delay, then you should probably avoid tuning in to Sky Sports News at 11am on Sunday. While a global World Cup qualifying draw contains more teams, the one for Euro 2020, taking place in Dublin, will really take some beating when it comes to possible reasons not simply to place teams in groups according to the order they are pulled out of the hat.
In part, this is because of the staging of the finals across a dozen countries rather than one or two but also the side-effects of the Nations League. While Uefa’s biennial tournament has generally been deemed a success – and not just in England – it does complicate life for its elder sibling.
