England v Spain - What exactly is the Nations League?

It's the most frustrating week of the year - just when we got used to getting club football back, international football returns and takes it all from us again. After England's heroic World Cup exploits in Russia, it's fair to say most of the country has fallen back in love with the Three Lions but now we have to get behind them in a tournament no one knows anything about. Gareth Southgate takes his warriers in to battle against Spain in the new Nations League at Wembley on Saturday and...
