The major change, however, is that the final four places will be decided via play-offs between the winners of the 16 Nations League groups in 2018. Division "B" will be divided into four groups of three teams.

League B: Austria, Wales, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden, Ukraine, Republic of Ireland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Northern Ireland, Denmark, Czech Republic, Turkey.

"The Nations League" sees the 55 European national teams placed into four pots with their position depending on their rankings.

There will still be dates in the calendar for the top nations to play worldwide friendlies, with Nations League games taking up four of the six available global match dates at the end of next year.

The four group winners of League A will qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals, to be held in June 2019, with two semi-finals, a third-place match and the final.

The competition which will effectively replace friendlies will run from September to November 2018.
