[Mis à jour le 22 septembre 2022 à 22h52] It was necessary to change your tone after four failures, including two defeats, at the start of the competition. The League of Nations resumed under better auspices for the French football team, which won (2-0) at the Stade de France this Thursday, September 22, against Austria. In a match controlled from start to finish or almost, the Blues showed a completely different face than last June, animating the game and creating many chances which could have increased the score. Yet another ride from Kylian Mbappé and a whim from Olivier Giroud therefore allowed Didier Deschamps and his group to reassure themselves, despite the avalanche of injuries which overwhelmed the locker room before this meeting.
The adventure of the League of Nations should therefore continue in group A for the men of Didier Deschamps, even if it is still necessary to confirm against Denmark, for the last day on Sunday. If they already know that they will not play in the final phase of the 2022 edition, their chances of being in a favorable position for the Euro 2024 draw also remain intact.
In the other matches of this 6th day of the League of Nations, Croatia won against Denmark (2-1), thus taking the lead in group A, that of France. Belgium overcame Wales (2-1) in Group D and the Netherlands beat Poland (2-0). Tomorrow, the League of Nations continues with, on the program in particular, a shock Italy – England in group C.

What are the rules of the League of Nations?
The Football Nations League is organized into four leagues. The four winners of League A groups qualify for the Final Four (semi-finals + final) in October 2021, the winners of Leagues B, C and D groups will be promoted and the last of Leagues A and B will be relegated to the lower league. It should also be remembered that, as in the first edition of the competition, won last year by Portugal, the challenge of this League of Nations is twofold: beyond the trophy awarded to the final winner (necessarily from the League A), two possibly qualifying places for the World Cup 2022 are granted since the two best winners of Nations League groups (in all leagues) who are not directly qualified via the classic play-offs (which remain in force) will be able to participate in play-offs. This year it is France and Belgium, who will therefore have a lifeline in the event of poor performance during the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup.
