Truth be told, I am not a big fan of international breaks unless it is for major tournaments like the world cup, Copa America, AFCON or the euros,
I wouldn't say that they are boring but they don't offer the same excitement and joy as club football in general.
During this covid-19 pandemic, I would opt to protect players from movements as they could get the deadly disease but they are playing the UEFA nations league and world cup qualification so they must compete,
The 2nd edition of the UEFA nations league was won by France who are in their first reign, they beat Spain in the final.
The cash prize for the UEFA Nations league this season was raised to over €100 million, The winning team got more than €14 million, The runner up got €9 million while the third and fourth place will get €8 million and €7 million respectively.
Almost all club football competition are back on this weekend,
In Europe top 5 leagues, The German and French league were the first to lift up the curtains last night.
