Matchday 6: First ever UEFA Nations League final four is set


Portugal and Poland split 1-1 in League A (1-0). Arkadiusz Milik equalized the home side's lead by Andre Silva (34 ') with a penalty kick (66'). Danilo saw the red card after a foul on Milik.

Sweden managed to qualify into the final four with a 2: 0 (1-0) win against Russia. Victor Lindelöf scored in the 41st minute following a corner for the Scandinavians, Marcus Berg (72.) after the break for the decision. The Swedes pushed the Russians out of first place. The first leg had ended 0-0.
