    How big a deal will it be to win this ?

    Lots of "its coming home " things getting getting about on social media.

    Really looking forward to it and be great to win something but

    Does it really matter ?

      It would mean we qualify for the Euros so I guess yes it does matter.

      However in terms of actual silverwear I cant see it being more than winning a trophey pre-season or charity shield.

      So, how does the ticket allocation work ?

      for example 15k fans per team semi finals are Ok you know where & when the game is played

      does that ticket then get you to the final or 3/4 play off 3 days later ?

      Bit like winning the League Cup in club terms.

      Winning the Nations League doesn't automatically give us a place at the Euros. By winning our group we have given ourselves a second chance of qualifying for the Euros through a playoff system should we fail to qualify through the normal Euro 2020 qualifiers (this applies to all group winners across all 4 of the Nations League levels).

      You can apply for conditional tickets. If you are successful, and they go through, the tickets are then confirmed.

      This really. It would be the most major trophy England have won since 1966.

      Which, obviously, isn't hard....

      If you are a member of the Englandfans travel club then you could have bought tickets for the semi final - as you said, easy as you know where it is. For the other game they have what is called 'SuperSunday' tickets - so you register and after the results of the semi finals are known then you have an electronic ticket sent over on a phone app whether it is for the final or 3/4th play off. I am going to Porto on Saturday so hoping England can win on Thursday night - would obviously rather go to a final than 3/4th place playoff (don't know if anyone would give a sh*t about the difference between 3rd and 4th !).

      Is this bigger than the 1997 Tournoi de France ?

      Saw a good interview with John Stones over the weekend, and he made the point that whilst winning the Nations League is not like winning a WC or Euros, just winning a tournament like this can act as a real catalyst to START winning things. We've seen it at the likes of Chelsea and Man City, where a manager comes in, and the first trophy they go and win is the League Cup. Not overly grand in the great scheme of things, but silverware is a stepping stone that can spur players on to bigger and better things. It engenders a winning mentality that can be taken forward.

      I really hope we manage to give a good account of ourselves this week, and would love to see England win it. There have been some brilliant performances along the way this season to reach this stage, and maybe it could just be the start of something...
