England’s Nations League plans disrupted by Champions League


Liverpool and Tottenham both produced incredible comebacks to reach the Champions League final but that could have significant ramifications for England’s Nations League hopes next month.

The Champions League final takes place on June 1 in Madrid but England contest the semi-final of the Nations League against Netherlands on June 6 in Guimaraes, Portugal.

Fortunately, there is only around 250 miles between the two cities but it is not necessarily the ideal build-up for Gareth Southgate, given that so many of his England regulars will be involved.
