England Schedule

Last updated : 04 June 2019 By Footy Mad - Editor

With the Nations League finals getting underway this week, let me just say ... blink and it will be over.

England are one of four teams involved in a competition that is hardly worth the effort.

But, as Kevin Keegan once told me when Newcastle played in the Anglo-Italian Cup back in 1992, "It's not my choice to enter, but while we are in it, let's give it our best shot!"

Gareth Southgate's side are battling Portugal, Switzerland and the Netherlands for the title and are potentially 180 minutes away from getting their hands on major silverware for the first time since 1966.

But, I don't think many will be dancing in the streets if we do.

What is the schedule?

Two semi-finals take place and the winners of those games will meet in the final on Sunday.

If scores are level at the end of 90 minutes, there will be 30 minutes of extra-time where teams are permitted to make a fourth substitution. If required, there will also be a penalty shootout.
