When Is The Next Round Of The UEFA Nations League? Who Will England Play?

The Three Lions march on.. but to where?
The Three Lions march on.. but to where?

Gareth Southgate will guide England to a second semi-final in a year after his Three Lions side came from behind to beat Croatia at Wembley. A 2-1 win took them from the brink of relegation to the second tier to having a summer of competitive football to look forward to in 2019.

The way in which the group stage of the new competition works has been a head-scratcher for all involved but, mercifully, the knockout rounds should be a simpler affair. Find all you need to know ahead of them below.

When is the draw?

The draw for the semis will be held at 1:30 PM GMT on Monday December 3.

It’ll take place in Dublin, Ireland.

Who else is in the draw?

England, Switzerland and Portugal are the three names already in the hat. 

Switzerland staged a remarkable comeback against Belgium to seal their place whilst Portugal qualified comfortably.

Depending on the results of upcoming matches, France or the Netherlands will take the final spot.

How does the draw work?

It’s set to be an open affair, there’s no seeding of any kind applied.

So England could face either the Euro 2016 Champions or the World Cup champions.

Where will they be held?

They’ll be in the sunny climes of Portugal with Porto's Estádio do Dragão and the Estádio D. Afonso Henriques in Guimaraes the provisional locations, although that’s yet to be finalised.

When are they on?

The first of the two semi-finals will be held on Wednesday June 5 2019 and will involve Portugal. The second will be held on the 6th, the next day.

Both the final of the competition and third-placed playoff will both be held on the following Sunday, June 9.

What happens if we win?

If England win they receive a sterling silver trophy and €7.5m in prize money. They do not qualify for Euro 2020 automatically although all these final four contenders will be placed in five-team groups rather than six, making it slightly easier for them.
