Follow live reaction from the draw for the third edition of the Nations League.

England have been drawn against Italy, Germany and Hungary in League A. Another meeting with the Italians will see a rematch of the final of Euro 2020 of course while the Germans are a side Gareth Southgate’s team beat en route to that Wembley showpiece last summer. The Three Lions were paired with Hungary in 2022 World Cup qualifying with the match in Budapest marred by racist abuse of England players from the stands,

Wales face a tough group, also in League A, having been pulled out of the hat with world number one Belgium, Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands and Robert Lewandowski’s Poland. Steve Clarke’s Scotland have been drawn alongside Republic of Ireland as well as Ukraine and Armenia in League B while over in League C, Northern Ireland will take on Greece, Kosovo and one of Cyprus or Estonia in their group.

There are some good memories for Wales and Scotland in their Nations League groups, as well.

While Wales have a tough group against Belgium, Netherlands and Poland in A4, a third place finish should earn them a play-off place for Euro 2024.

Four of England’s group games will take place in June 2022, with the other two in September.

The Three Lions will need to top the group in order to qualify for the Nations League finals.

England will face Italy, Germany and Hungary in a mouthwatering League A Group 3 in the 2022/23 Nations League.

Gareth Southgate’s side faced the prospect of a tough draw after they finished last season’s competition third in Group A2, behind Belgium and Denmark, leaving them in pot 2, and the result was a group against their great rivals Germany and Euro 2020 final conquerers Italy.

England beat Germany 2-0 in a tense Wembley quarter-final before losing a penalty shootout to Italy after a 1-1 draw in the final.

England also faced Hungary in 2022 World Cup qualifying. Hungary were handed a one-match stadium ban by Fifa after their fans racially abused England players Raheem Sterling and Jude Bellingham in a qualifier in September.

England’s group is undoubtedly the highlight, while there is also a repeat of the 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia and a nice clash between Spain and Portugal to look forward to.

Wales have received a horror draw and will be up against some of the best players in the world when they face Belgium, Netherlands and Poland.

Scotland and Ireland played out two classic matches in qualifying for Euro 2016.
