“We are studying the Nations League not because another party have organized it, but because we are in a phase where we have to re-evaluate our competitions. Previously, FIFA and UEFA have indeed submitted proposals on the Nations League,” Asian Football Confederation (AFC) secretary-general Datuk Windsor John Paul told Bernama.

UEFA recently introduced the Nations League, a new national team competition that replaces friendlies with competitive matches.

It also allows nations to play against equally ranked teams.
