When Platini got reign to UEFA, he made some decisions that made the big boys mad.

Changing the CL qualification route (allowing countries of smaller nations to have the champions route), and then expanding Euros. Both these decisions were met by hostility of many people, even on here...but many years on, it has transformed European international footy.

10 years ago or so, every European internationals night had loads of 6-0, 5-0, 8-0, drubbings in it. It no longer is the case (Unless for San Marino, Gibraltar, and Andorra). No game is a guaranteed 3 points. This change in format, this extra attention and hope given to smaller nations has not only blossomed some of them to a whole new level (Iceland, Northern Ireland, Wales, Albania, etc) , but even the likes of Lichtenstein, Luxamburg, Faroe Islands, Kazakhstan, Malta etc now give every team a hard game and come up with shocks a lot more than before.

European football at international stage is a lot stronger than before. And it's all thanks to Platini for ignoring the hierarchy of gangasters and mafia, and pushing for a change to make football more competitive in Europe across all nations.

You're a hero Michel. Iceland made history tonight....tears of joy from my friend in Reykjavik...that's what football is about and made most of us fall in love with the game.

See you in France next June...I'll be there. It'll be an amazing tournament and experience.

Big thing is that he's trying to get rid of friendlies altogether... the ultimate concept is for a year round NT european competition that directly impact qualification to the Euros and has massive financial implications depending on results for the NTs.

The preliminary concept is already approved for this. The final implementation has yet to be publicized. I assume it will happen after or during Euro 2016.

He'll be an effing hero in my eyes if he gets rid of international friendlies.
