Preamble

It’s a big-ish evening in the Nations League. Wales come back to earth after qualifying for the World Cup for the first time with 1958, taking on the Netherlands in Group A4. The Dutch always beat the Welsh – eight wins out of eight! – so good luck to Rob Page’s second string this evening. Meanwhile in Group B1, Scotland get their campaign underway with a supposedly easy home tie against Armenia, but look what they did to the Republic of Ireland last weekend. Meanwhile, Ireland themselves host Ukraine, who have some disappointment of their own to get over. All the games kick off at 7.45pm BST and we’ll keep you posted right here. It’s on!
