Preamble

Belgium will need an inspirational team talk prior to their match against the Netherlands, because, according to Kevin De Bruyne: “The Nations League is unimportant. We have to play those matches, but it’s a kind of practice campaign.”

Now that you are all in the mood for some hot June football action, we can take a closer look at the big match at The King Baudouin Stadium. Thibaut Courtois misses out after suffering a groin injury during the Champions League final, not that he will mind too much.

Netherlands could give a start to Manchester United target Jurrien Timber, allowing Red Devils (this works on two levels) to have a closer look at the Ajax defender.

Elsewhere, the Stade de France plays host to Denmark. There will be plenty of spotlight on policing and strategies for getting fans into the ground following the chaos at the Champions League final last week. Surely the police and other authorities will manage to be slightly less incompetent on this occasion.

France head coach Didier Deschamps will be absent following the death of his father. “He will be back soon. You have to respect his grief, he is with his family who needs him,” assistant Guy Stephan said.

We will keep across the other games, too, but they look pretty underwhelming.
