Not really pointless though Pete, it gives another avenue for Euro qualification. I think it's a good idea, it's complicated but it largely eliminates truly pointless friendlies. England playing Croatia and Spain in competitive games can only be a good thing.

This is how it should be...8 groups of 6 nations...top 2 in each group go through to the finals..finals is 4 groups of 4..top 2 go through to the quarters then its straight knockout..job done and that took me 5 mins to work that out...and if you are wondering there will be 6 tiers of seeding in qualifying A through to F..and 4 top seeds in the final.

Or run it like the champions league format 8 groups of 6 nations who play each other over 2 legs..then top 2 in each go through the the last 16... there on in games are played over two legs home and away with the final one game winner takes all.

Have you worked out where you would fit in 12 extra international games, plus the knockouts, in the calendar?
