Country coefficients and the World Cup qualifying helped determine which nations would be drawn into the four different leagues - A, B, C, D.

Boss Gareth Southgate will travel to Switzerland for the draw of the new format, which will replace the majority of friendlies.

55 times will be involved, and they will be split into four leagues based on their UEFA ranking.

Teams were split into four groups of three, with the group winners contesting the UEFA Nations League Finals in June 2019.

Scotland will take on Albania and Israel in the three-team Group 1 of League C, while Group 4 will see Serbia take on Montenegro.

It's a high quality group, that's the principle of this league. After the completion of the group stage, the winners will play against each other in the playoffs and the victor will advance to the final stage of the tournament. The Nations League also placed 2010 World Cup victor Spain with England and Croatia.

New Wales manager Ryan Giggs will be eager to get his reign off to the ideal start in a fixture which emphatically ended his predecessor Chris Coleman's time in the job.

So a strong performance in the Nations League can help you get to Euro 2020?

"But it is always tough when you are up against teams who you know the coaches, the players - do you cancel each other out?" At the end of the group stages, those who finish bottom of the groups will be relegated to the league below and four teams will be promoted to the league above.

Four more places at the finals will be awarded to play-off winners.

Russia, the hosts of this year's finals, will take on Sweden and Turkey, while Austria face Bosnia-Herzegovina and Northern Ireland.
