Nations League approved by UEFA

April 8, 2014 by David Bolt

One of the questions European football has been looking to answer in the past few years is what to do to improve International friendlies. A lot of international friendlies are not competitive enough to be of benefit of teams, as well as being pretty boring to watch for paying fans and TV audiences. Most are setup more as a money-spinning exercise for a national association than as a meaningful way to improve a national team.

Last week, UEFA outlined a plan to revamp and hopefully improve international football in Europe, by announcing the creation of the Nations League which will begin in 2018 and be played on most of the international dates currently occupied by friendlies.

It was not so long ago that Leeds United were one of the most exciting teams in English football. Leeds were a team with a seemingly perfect mix of exciting products of the Leeds academy and players signed from other British clubs for what were, at the time at least, sizable fees. They seemed to be poised to be in a position to be challenging for the Premier League title in years to come. In 2001, they even reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Kosovo make their international debut

March 10, 2014 by David Bolt

Last week saw international football being played all over Europe, with friendly games giving most of the European teams going to this summer’s World Cup another chance to experiment with different players and formations, or just to give players a little more international experience.

However, one of those international games was a little different from all the others. For a start, there weren’t any national flags or symbols on display and no national anthems were played before the game. That didn’t matter too much to the host nation however, as it was their first ever international game; a game which for years seemed unlikely ever to happen. That nation is Kosovo, who hosted Haiti on Wednesday night.
