The Nations League finals line-up is complete but who will compete in the 2021 knockout tournament and when will it take place?

England have missed out on competing in the knockout stage for the second edition of UEFA's newest international competition but all four group winners of the top-ranked League A have now been confirmed.

Here's what you need to know about next autumn's tournament, which will be shown live on Sky Sports.

France ended Portugal's title defence to reach the finals and Spain thrashed Germany to take their place in the finals, before Belgium and Italy followed suit.


When are the finals and what's the format?

The semi-final winners will advance to the final, with the two defeated teams contesting a third-placed play-off. The semi-finals and final will all go to extra-time and penalties if required, with the play-off going straight to a shootout if the scores are level at full-time.
