England will discover their Nations League semi-final competitions on Monday, once the draw occurs in Dublin at 13:30 GMT.
Here is all you need to know more about the finals.
Who’ll get involved in them?
The finals comes with an unexpected look, with world champions France, World Cup finalists Croatia, World Cup semi-finalists Belgium, 2014 World Cup winners Germany and much-fancied Spain all missing out from the group stages.
Gareth Southgate’s England finished top of Group A4, while Switzerland pipped Belgium to the top of Group A2 on head-to-head record by beating them 5-2 in their final game.
European champions Portugal were high in A3, while Netherlands continued their resurrection as they scored a 90th-minute equaliser in their final game against Germany to win A1.
Where and when will it take place?
Portugal will host the inaugural finals. The format and dates are as follows:
5 June: Semi-final 1
6 June: Semi-final two
Monday’s draw will decide who matches who in the semi-finals, without a seedings.
Among the semi-final ties is then drawn out to choose who are technically the hosts for the final for administrative reasons. That semi-final will probably be on 5 June, with another game the next day.
- Who finished where in Nations League?
Portugal were termed as hosts by virtue of finishing top of Group A3 and over Italy and Poland, another two countries to state an interest.
Porto’s Estadio do Dragao and the Estadio D Afonso Henriques in Guimaraes are the suggested venues for the four matches which will take place.
What is it worth to the Football Association?
Harry Kane’s late goal against Croatia in November which sent England to the finals proved to be extremely rewarding.
England had already got £1.5m for taking part in the Nations League and got an additional £1.5m for beating Croatia and finishing top of the group.
No matter what occurs next summer, even if they complete fourth, they have also ensured themselves a pound & further;1.5m. This includes after England claimed £17m from Fifa for finishing fourth in the World Cup in the summer.
The winner of this Nations League championship will receive £6.67m and the decoration, which looks like this:
