So is the League of Nations necessary?

0 23

– We have recently adopted a resolution for the 2018 tournament. 54 national organizations have decided that they want the League of Nations to be born. We will deal with the details later. This is how we change friendly matches, which are not in the interest of the public, journalists or players. It is a good decision”, said Michel Platini, who was the head of UEFA, the main ideological inspiration of the League of Nations.

– The League of Nations was more successful than we thought. We always get complaints from big football countries: “we play with small countries”, “we don’t play with each other”. And the small countries always complained about us: “We never won.” It is very interesting and the path to the European Championship, which is also great for Group D, where teams can qualify for the European Championship. Before it became almost impossible, – the current head of the European Football Federation, Alexander Ceferin, confirmed Platini’s words.

However, all these seem to be just beautiful words. What did we gain in practice with the advent of the League of Nations? It is clear that thanks to this UEFA got an extra chance to win. Well, what about the sports component? And here we come to the most important thing: in fact, the League of Nations has become another competition for national teams, similar to a conditional qualification for the World and European Championships. In the first place, its calendar is very fragmented: matches last several years, and often, during the same competition in the team, both the composition and the coaching staff change several times. Couldn’t it have been done differently? Secondly, from the experience of the matches played, it can be said with absolute certainty that the format of games in the League of Nations is not the same as that of friendly matches. National teams, realizing that they are fighting for trophies, fight each other seriously and do not allow themselves to experiment with combinations of players or tactics. And it turns out that instead of control matches, which were important game training for the teams, they now receive an optional additional physical and mental load, which is of no use except for a vague chance to qualify for the European Championship.
