A bunch also plays says this tournament is redundant and a money grab by UEFA squeezed right after an already exhausting club season so I can imagine them saving themselves and not caring as much about it

This is essentially a rebranded cluster of friendly games and it's very unnecessary.

It is a second tier competition, no doubt, but still best of Europe! To me, it is impressive as it is a group of no names and a few aging players with a new untested coach with slightly different tactics! Most important is our new backup CF has scored 3 goals in 3 games, this time scoring on his only shot at goal!

Note, one of complaints of this tournament didn’t matter to most countries was France yet we didn’t hear any of that nonsense a year ago when they won this “mickey mouse” tournament!

I like the concept of the tournament. I think it's definitely more exciting than friendlies. And gives teams an extra tournament with good prizes up for grabs. I

Congrat to Spain.

Some thoughts:
Normally, players get some vacation during the winter break so playing a couple of extra games in June is not a big deal. But this year, you asked players to literally go straight from August until June without a break. Just glad nobody got injured.

I don't think anyone was really focused on the Nation's League because of the World Cup timing. It messed everything up. Players were trying not to get injured and save energy in Nation's League pool games as opposed to really going hard (for France at least). Not that it did much good given the crazy number of injuries going in the world cup (again for France). Anyhow, FIFA is completely at fault here. Hopefully, first and last time there is a WC during the winter.

Re France winning this tournament getting more hype - It was mainly due to the fact that the world cup was coming and teams were trying to sharpen up before that. Also, it was the big return of Benzema to France NT during that tournament so it got more attention than usual. Without these two circumstances, it would have gotten the same attention as this one IMO.

I still think the games are very fun to watch. You don't have the crazy pressure of a world cup or euro. So the teams go all out a bit more. Makes for better football. I'd suggest that the Nation's League games are the best quality NT ones currently.

The nations cup is a replacement for boring non competitive friendlies! And that alone is a huge improvement in terms of competition. Nations teams play their games at set established timeframes throughout the year, roughly 5 or 6 times with usually a tournament in the summer every 2nd year. All the the nations cup did differently than when it was just friendlies was the final tournament of 4 teams! It wasn’t uefa that screwed this up, it was fifa with the winter WC.

Bottom line to me is it doesn’t matter if it is fifa or uefa or individual leagues. They all want more games, more revenue and there is little regard for players. There are just too many games. As a result, teams, both clubs and NTs almost need to have enough depth for two teams to be competitive!
