Hahaha they don't make it easy Michael. 2 teams from each group qualify which gives 20 teams. That leaves 4 places so this is where the nations league comes in to play. The 4 winners from each group in the nations league go onto a knockout playoff with the 4 winners given a place at the euros. Scotland can face Serbia, Finland or Norway. Confusing right enough :lol:

I take it that means Scotland now have two ways to qualify for the Euros, bonzo.

1: They either finish 1st or second in their qualifying group (group i) … always the best way of course, but as you say it still leaves another 4 places up for grabs.

2: Or, they finish anywhere from 3rd to last in their qualifying group but can still qualify if they win a play-off.

I'm thinking this nations league play-off route must have been brought in to replace the 4 best placed 3rd placed teams in the group qualifying ?

Might have more to say on this as I'm still trying to get my head round some things, including sporting integrity issues. :)
