Uefa’s Nations League, a competition too far

369

There is every chance you do not know if tonight’s Czech Republic – Scotland game is competitive or a friendly (it’s Nations League, so somewhere in-between), but, like me, you will be concerned that during European qualification, several Celtic players will take the field against the remaining Czechs who have not tested positive for Covid.

This disease has an incubation period of up to 14 days.  The Czechs have lost their first team due to infection and we now roll the dice hoping there has been no cross-contamination around Czech football circles in recent days.

Nothing about this is right.  The Nations League should have been one of the many things we have sacrificed due to the pandemic.  It required international travel and sporting bubbles to be mix.  What happened to the Czechs following their win over Slovakia on Friday will have consequences for both nations and for clubs across the continent.  I know the SFA are far from competent at most things, but the issue here lies at Uefa.

    Maybe we can swop them. Works for me.

  4. If we beat Israel I don’t fancy playing Norway. Just showed the goals on Sky. Halland’s is a belter

  5. Headlands goal,world class,Mois goal,a few mumbles,about poor defence keeper should have done better.

    Another soft penalty for Scotland. Good practice for Christie.

    Which team are on top this week

     

     

    Kings College cuffed York :))

  8. Shocking organisation at the back. Also, Christie breaks and none of our excess mids go with him. Fleck and McLean are so poor

  9. prestonpans bhoys on

    Must admit having difficulty working out which team was flung together in the last 24 hours

  10. Makeshift Czech League Select team attacking with 8 players. Tactically organized. Callum Patterson coming on for Dykes.
