History:
UEFA NATIONS LEAGUE 2020/21
UEFA, the European Football Confederation, will be organizing the UEFA Nations League, a competition which will see all 55 UEFA's associations members' national teams divided into a series of divisions based upon a ranking system formulated by using their recent results, where they would be promoted and relegated to other divisions according to their results within the group. The competition would take place on dates on the International match calendar that are currently allocated for international friendlies and would not affect the FIFA World Cup or UEFA European Championship qualifications, although the competition's final placing can replace any play-offs needed for qualification for these tournaments.

For the 2nd Edition UEFA reformed the format. All 55 UEFA national teams will still be divided into four divisions (called Leagues), however League A, B and C will be made up of 16 teams, each League divided in four groups of four teams each, whilst League D will be composed of seven teams divided in two groups of four and three teams respectively. In each League all teams in each group will play against each other both home and away. These matches will be played in the September - November 2020 period.

The following year in the September or October 2021 period, the winners of the four groups in the top division, League A, will go on to play in the Nations League Finals hosted in one European nation selected from the four finalists: two semi-finals, one 3/4 place final and one final to decide which team becomes the UEFA Nations League champion.

Teams will also be promoted and relegated to a higher or lower division. Each group winner in Leagues B, C, and D are automatically promoted to the next higher division for the next tournament, whilst each team placing last in its group in Leagues A and B will be  automatically relegated to the next lower division. In League C, the two teams to be relegated will be determined by play-outs between the four teams placing last in each group.

The UEFA Nations League Trophy the Wolf
The UEFA Nations League Trophy is inspired from the logo of the competition - the flag, representing all the 55 UEFA members national associations, elegantly wrapped around a flag pole. It is entirely made of sterling silver and on the inside has the colourful competition logo, thus reflecting on the silver surface. On the outside it has the same logo engraved in linear format, the logo of UEFA and the words 'UEFA Nations League'. The trophy weighs 7.5kg, is 71cm tall, was designed by the Portuguese branch of the international company Young & Rubicom Branding (Y&R) and was manufactured by the Italian company IACO Group.

2020/21 Natione League Last-Minute Replacment
Three days before the Semi-Final and the beginning of the final phase of the 2020/21 UEFA Nations League, Ciro IMMOBILE and Rafael TOLOI were declared unfit to participate in the final phase after being injured during the previous week. Thus they were replaced in the squad by Moise KEAN and Davide CALABRIA, both were Azzurri that were considered for the EURO 2020 and used after.

The day after, Matteo PESSINA was also declared unfit to participate in final phase and he was replaced by Federico DIMARCO, called for the first time in Azzurro although he had participated in two Stages of the Italian National team in 2016 and 2019.
