  1. Ed or Edgar. Giving that the draw for 2022 will be in july 2019. How would be the European ranking for June 2019?

  3. Anon, I think it is not very insightful at the moment to predict a ranking for June 2019 regarding the European teams.
    There are a few uncertainties:
    - at least the schedule of the Nations League in Autumn 2018 should be known: draw January 24th;
    - we still not know for certain with what weight the UNL-matches will count for the ranking (although I suspect that will be 2.5);
    - I expect some changes in the calculation of the ranking announced in 2018, given indications from FIFA and other recent information about the development of continental Nations Leagues (besides UEFA at least also in CONCACAF).

    Happy New Year to everybody !
