The Nations League final tournament will take place at the end of next year. “The countries have done everything to qualify and that shows that the tournament is slowly growing into a top tournament,” said Belgian national coach Roberto Martínez. “It was a tough decision to replace the friendly matches, but it is fantastic for the fans and for everyone who has anything to do with the Red Devils. It will be a top tournament and details will decide the result.”
