      It was ok! Portugal deserved the win but I'm not Fernando Santos' biggest fan to be honest. I thought he was lucky as hell to win the Euro and is still living off that reputation.

      Italy, though, are beyond recognition. Must be one of the weakest Italian teams I've seen in a long time.

      2-3 win away win for Portugal in Poland, Polands 2nd goal looked like the ball had crossed the line b4 it was crossed in to the box should of been a throw in to Portugal

      The Dutch showing so much flair and confidence! Can't speak highly enough of Wijnaldum, such an exceptional player!

      Never understood why so many people can't see how good Wijnaldum is. Been banging the Wijnaldum drum ever since he arrived. Great player.

      Some very interesting players in that young, Dutch side too. De Light having a particularly poor game though. Other than that I really like Bergwijn and love Frenkie De Jong, amazing young player.

      Looking forward to the Belgium - Netherlands friendly next week.

      Yeah, tbh, I was one of those posters who didn't fully understand and appreciate Wijnaldum until you pointed me into the right direction  :D He is so tactically aware, but on top of that, a fantastic footballer and athletic.

      I think the Dutch are missing that 1 exceptional/world class attacking player to take them to the next level, but yeah, they have a very strong young team. And I didn't know they were playing Belgium next week! Can't wait!!!

      Gini has stepped it up another level this season though. Fair to say that before this season when games turned into a battle he would go missing.

      Good little header by VVD to give Holland the 1-0 lead as well.

      Look good under Koeman now.

      Depay was brilliant, think he'll get a big move again next summer.

      So England, Holland, Portugal or Switzerland to lift the trophy. Great chance for a trophy. England really should have shown interest in hosting and not let Portugal get it so easily.

      I quite like this Nations League, probably because Norway managed to get promotion from League C! But in seriousness I think it produced some quite good matches, certainly better than normal friendlies.

      Nations League has been fun and competitive, but I am still against it, same with friendlies during the season. Imagine playing qualifiers instead and scraping the friendlies? More rest time for players during the season and summer.

      What  I'd do is have nations league replace qualifying more. A system where group A winners and runners up qualify auto. The two Group B play off finalists qualify, Group C and D winners qualify. That's 4+2+1+1+hosts which leaves the remaining 46 teams to go into groups with 15 places available. Could have 10 groups where winners qualify and runners up play off. The group's would be 4 or 5 teams big. That replaces the old 5 or 6 places big. That means teams only have 6 or 8 qualifying games. If teams have 6 qualifying games they get a qouta of 4 friendlies. For teams with 8 qualifying games 2 friendlies. All teams would get 10 international games during qualifying after the nations league. Nations League winners would need much more ranking points per win to ensure they wouldn't lose ranking places due to a much shorter qualification.
