The 2022-23 Nations League group stages come to an end this month, with England, Wales and Northern Ireland all facing relegation - and Scotland aiming for promotion.
Most teams played their first four games in June, with two matches remaining.
The Nations League is a biennial competition in its third edition. It was first won by Portugal in 2019 and France are the defending champions after beating Spain in the 2021 final.

How does it work?
There are three leagues of 16 teams - each with four groups of four teams - and a fourth tier with seven teams - split into a group of four teams and one of three.
The winners of each group in League A qualify for next year's finals tournament, while the winners of each group in Leagues B, C and D secure promotion to the next league up.
Teams who finish bottom of their groups in League A and B will be relegated, and those in League C will enter a play-off to decide who drops to League D.
It also decides who goes into the play-offs for Euro 2024.
The winners of each group in Leagues A, B and C qualify for the play-offs. If they qualify for Euro 2024 through the traditional qualifiers, their play-off spot goes to the next best team in their league - or the tier below if everybody in that league has qualified.
The 12 teams split into three play-off groups - with semis and a final, and the winners of each (three teams in total) go to the Euros.
