A new phenomenon starts today called the UEFA Nations League - a brand new venture by Europe's governing body to get more people following worldwide matches.
19-year-old Kyliane Mbappe holds the title of the 2018 Fifa World Cup Young Player award.
Joachim Loew has the huge task of rebuilding his squad from the one that finished an inglorious bottom in Russian Federation 2018. Leroy Sane is in the squad after missing the World Cup, and all eyes will be on him after failing to win minutes with Manchester City at the start of the season.
Joachim Loew: "As far as the immediate future is concerned, it's important that we make some changes in the team".
The reigning world champions were looking to catch the home side on counter-attacks using the pace of Kylian Mbappe upfront but Germany were clever with their line at back constantly playing an off-side trap.
Rafael Nadal needs 5 sets, almost 5 hours to outlast Dominic Thiem
There are no chill Rafael Nadal matches, like oh cool, I'll watch some tennis and my blood pressure will stay level. But once again Nadal stepped up the level, saved two break points in the game and then went on to claw back to 4-4.
Although Gareth Southgate's side made a run to the semi-finals of the World Cup, they did so by beating relatively modest sides, like Tunisia, Panama and Sweden, while Colombia were only navigated via a penalty shootout. From Maguire's point of view, all he has to worry about is a group of three teams-England, Spain and Croatia: if England finishes at the top, it goes into a four-team semifinals next summer; if it finishes bottom, it is relegated into a lower division.
But whether the Nations League should be linked to Euro qualifying, and if so in what way, are quibbles for further down the line.
