FILE - In this Saturday, Feb 22, 2014 file photo UEFA President Michel Platini speaks during a press conference, one day prior to the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying draw at the Acropolis Convention Centre in Nice, southeastern France. Seeking to bolster national team football amid the rampant success of club competitions, UEFA’s 54 member countries voted Thursday to create the Nations League. UEFA boosted the new event by guaranteeing it would feed into qualifying for the 2020 European Championship. It could later be incorporated into European qualifying for the 2022 World Cup. “This is a very important decision for the future of football at the level of national teams,” UEFA President Michel Platini said Thursday after the unanimous vote at European football’s annual congress..
