England fans around the country have confirmed that the UEFA Nations League is the best tournament in world football, and that anyone who doesn’t love it unconditionally must not want to be happy.  

Following England’s come-from-behind win against Croatia, which saw the Three Lions advance to the last four of the exciting new tournament that everyone loves, fans flooded the forums and airwaves to insist that they had always approved of the Nations League concept and couldn’t wait for the next round of matches. 

England supporter Stacey Williams said: “I may have implied last month that the Nations League sounded like the doomed forerunner to the UN that couldn’t even referee a clash between Greece and Albania.

“However, I now acknowledge that this was premature and the Nations League is perfectly capable of establishing peace throughout Europe, and entertaining millions of fans while doing so.”

Change of tune

The Nations League, inaugurated this season and widely considered the international equivalent of the Anglo-Italian Trophy, had been subject to widespread criticism, which everyone now agrees was highly premature.

“I want to clarify some comments I made a few weeks ago, when I implied that the Nations League sounded like a knock-off computer game version of the European Championship,” said England supporters’ club member Pete Freeman.

“For the record, the Nations League is in fact a perfectly legitimate and respectable tournament, and absolutely not the result of a company failing to pay for naming rights and ending up with teams called things like Smitzerland and Fronce.”

The Nations League finals will be held between June 5 and June 9 next summer, when England will face the powerhouses of Smitzerland, Fronce, and the host nation, Rortugal.
