Champions League final may 'mess' with England's Nations League schedule, laments Southgate

  • England national team manager Gareth Southgate's squad for this month's European Championship qualifiers has 13 players from four English clubs in the quarter-finals of the Champions League

Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham are all in Friday's quarter-final draw raising the possibility that at least one English team could reach the final.

Ronaldo delivered another career-defining performance, scoring a hat trick against Atletico Madrid to overturn a 2-0 first-leg loss.

"We have been in a semi-final, we qualified [four] months ago and what a great opportunity to win something".

Second and unbeaten in Bayern Munich's group, the Dutch side produced a spectacular 4-1 win at the Bernabeu to knock out holders Real Madrid in the Round of 16.

It was fitting that a goal by Virgil van Dijk proved to be key in Munich, with the arrival of the center back for $99 million in January 2018 shoring up a defense that had been shaky in Klopp's first two years in charge.

There is also the possibility that derby rivals United and City could face each other in the quarter-finals or take on fellow Premier League sides Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Predictably amid the backstop of the Brexit shambles on the political front, some fans wondered aloud whether English teams knew the country was meant to be exiting the EU.

In Liverpool's next appearance at this stage of the competition they edged out Juventus, then Chelsea in the semi-finals, before THAT famous comeback victory over AC Milan in the 2004/05 Final.

But one possible explanation of this might be the fact that UEFA hold mock Champions League draws and these might be the outcome of one such mock incident.

It was also a display of muscle-flexing by City, Liverpool and Spurs that will have been noted by the likes of Barcelona and Juventus, the two continental heavyweights most likely to stand in the way of an English triumph in the final in Madrid on June 1. These are, in turn, calculated on how far a team has advanced in European competitions, with points from the Champions League having a bigger weighting difference than points collected from the Europa League.

The Red Devils booked their place in the last eight of the competition thanks to a famous 3-1 away win over Paris Saint-Germain last week, seeing them through on away goals.
