International games with more meaning than friendlies. Don't see the harm myself

I think it's that rarest of things, a good idea from football administrators*. Teams playing against similar standard teams (okay, and England playing against better teams) outside of tournaments is a good thing. Especially for us, I suspect.

* Don't worry, they've contrived to make the detail baffling, but the root idea is good

It is complicated, but in essence I think its quite a good idea.

I like it too. Fewer friendlies.

The last League of Nations did not turn out too well.

Expect this latest incarnation to result in a period of domination by The Hun coupled with a resurgence of The Azzurri.
La Roja will implode after a period of internal in fighting.
