Nations League: Republic of Ireland in group with Northern Ireland and Walkes

The Republic of Ireland have been drawn in League B alongside Northern Ireland and Wales.

The Republic of Ireland are in League B alongside Northern Ireland and Wales who they defeated to progress to a World Cup play-off on Monday.

Each league will see the teams split into separate groups, with Leagues A and B splitting into four groups of three teams.

The draw for specific groups in the Nations League, which will largely replace global friendlies, will be made on January 24, with the first games taking place next September.

European confederation UEFA announced the four leagues for their new competition on Wednesday, following the conclusion of the groups stages in the World Cup qualifying campaign.

The competition which will effectively replace friendlies will run from September to November 2018.

The victor will be decided at a tournament between the winners of the four league A groups in June 2019, with semi-finals, a third-place match and a final to be held in one of the finalist countries.

Kerala HC says 'All inter-faith marriages can't be termed love jihad'
It must be noted that earlier, the Kerala government had said that if the apex court wants an NIA probe, it has no objections. Later, the high court annulled the marriage, calling it a case of "love jihad", and sent Hadiya back to her father's custody.

That means missing out on the potential for games against Germany, Italy, Spain and England, who are among the dozen teams to qualify for League A. One host country will be appointed in December 2018 from among the finalist teams.

Despite not qualifying for the World Cup either, the Netherlands will take their place in the 12-team "A" league at the expense of Chris Coleman's side. The four group winners will be promoted to League B, with the four bottom sides relegated to League D for the 2020 edition.

League C contains Hungary, Romania, Scotland, Slovenia, Greece, Serbia, Albania, Norway, Montenegro, Israel, Bulgaria, Finland, Cyprus, Estonia and Lithuania.

For the UEFA Nations League Finals, the group winners of UEFA Nations League A will play in a knockout format (semi-finals, third-place match and final) in June 2019 to become the UEFA Nations League winners. The four group winners are promoted to League B, with the four sides that finish bottom relegated to League D for the 2020 edition.

Division D: Azerbaijan, Macedonia, Georgia, Belarus, Armenia, Faroe Islands, Latvia, Luxembourg, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Liechtenstein, Malta, Kosovo, Andorra, San Marino and Gibraltar.

Teams will be split into four groups of four, with the four group winners promoted to League C for the 2020 edition.

The Euro 2020 qualification play-offs are set for March 2020 as mentioned above, and Euro 2020 itself, which will be played across the continent, will begin three months later.
