we already explained what the League of Nations is all about (blog post). At that time we already warned the fans of the German national football team after the embarrassing appearance at the World Cup in Russia, that the next shame is imminent: the descent from League A to League B in the Nations League. What at that time sounded like a serious warning but somehow not quite as realistic is now a bitter reality: the 1-1 draw between Poland and the reigning European champion Portugal now brings both the German national team and Poland aswell into League B.
In addition to the sporting disgrace for the four-time world champion, this descent also has consequences for the qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Since according to the FIFA decision for the World Cup in the desert state, only 13 places for European countrys are available. And the same principles apply to qualifying for this tournament as at the European Championship 2020 and thus the so-called UEFA Nations League Overall Ranking is crucial.
The league A consists of twelve nations, and due to the descent to league B Germany can only occupy 13th place at the next ranking in 2020/21. But since only 9 teams qualify directly, the qualification for the national team could be as difficult as in a long time.
However, we at PiNAO hope that the face of the national team in 2019 will be a completely different one and that we will be able to celebrate far more victories than other matches. Thus there will not be another shortage of talent in the future, we at PiNAO Sports have something in store for every ambitious kicker: from football to the matching goalkeeper gloves to football coach, you will find everything you need at the PiNAO dealer near you!
