Welcome to Milan for our live coverage of the Nations League final between Spain and France.
It doesn’t have the status of the World Cup or the European Championships – maybe not even Le Tournoi – but the second instalment of UEFA’s newest international competition has served up a real treat of a conclusion.
Both countries came through sensational semi-finals to reach the San Siro, and are now are just 90 minutes away from adding another trophy to their impressive collection of honours.
Luis Enrique’s young Spanish side ended Italy’s world record run of 37 matches unbeaten on Wednesday. Two Ferran Torres goals at this very venue as ensured La Roja became the first nation this century to defeat the Azzurri on their own patch.
They looked set to be joined in the final by the world’s number one ranked team, Belgium, until an incredible second half fightback brought France back from two goals down to win in Turin. Theo Hernandez’s wonderful winner in the last minute came just moments after Romelu Lukaku had thought he had sealed it for the Red Devils.
The Premier League is well represented in tonight’s final, not only by a host of players within each squad, but also by referee Anthony Taylor, who heads up an English team of match and video officials.
The match is set for a 7.45pm start, and we’ll have confirmation of the two teams shortly as part of our pre-match coverage.
