Nations League: England to face Germany and Italy, Wales to face the Netherlands | Football News



England will face Germany, Italy and Hungary in League A of the Nations League, while Wales will face Belgium, Netherlands and Poland.

In League B, Scotland and Republic of Ireland will face each other in B1 alongside Ukraine and Armenia.

It will be the second meeting between Scotland and Ukraine in the space of a few months as they face each other in a World Cup play-off semi-final in March before the start of the Nations League campaign.

Scotland last played Republic of Ireland in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, winning 1-0 at Celtic Park and drawing 1-1 in Dublin but have never played Armenia before.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland were drawn alongside Greece, Kosovo and Cyprus/Estonia in League C2.

The last time Northern Ireland faced Greece was a 3-1 victory in Belfast that secured a place at Euro 2016, with Steven Davis scoring twice and Josh Magennis also on the scoresheet.

Although Northern Ireland have never faced Kosovo, they last played Cyprus in 1973 and have won the last three meetings in all competitions against Estonia.
