    - Ten groups, 2 qualify directly from each group = 20 teams
    - Remaining 4 places are determined by a series of playoffs
    - The participants in the playoffs are determined by the 2018/19 Nations League matches which have all taken place
    - The 4 best teams from NL League D (who havenít qualified via the traditional qualification groups) will be the League D play off teams. A 1 leg semi-final followed by a 1 leg final, in March 2020
    - Same too for NL Leagues C, B and A
    - But Ė in all likelihood all the League A teams will qualify outright, so the League A play off path gets made up of the best B (or maybe even C) teams that donít qualify outright
    - Youíd also expect most B teams to qualify outright
    - So, despite Ireland doing rubbish in the Nations League, as long as no more than 6 Nations League A or B teams fail to qualify from the groups, we get a playoff, probably in the vacant League A playoff path (because theyíve already qualified their playoff places go to the remaining B teams) Ė and @insidetherock was pointing out which other teams that would be against. Thatís what the above posts were about.

    A few of us were debating some of the finer nuances of the exact mechanism but this was a mix of highly intelligent (Geysir) and nerdy (mainly me, Sammy, insidetherock and davidatrb) posts.

    I was OK up to the first two lines and then my head starts spinning!

    I am mighty impressed by those who can, or pretend they can, understand it.

    by my reckoning, if we dont qualify directly, we're currently looking at being in a play off with Bosnia, Wales/Slovakia, Ireland, Northern Ireland
