France star Ousmane Dembele has no idea how Nations League works and jokes teams end up playing for 'holidays' | The Sun

OUSMANE DEMBELE has admitted even he doesn't know how the Nations League works.

France currently sit bottom of Group A1 in this season's competition.


Get French Football News shared a video in which team-mate Antoine Griezmann asked him if he knew the rules of the tournament.

The French international, 25, laughed and shook his head.

Dembele answered: “The coach said but I don’t understand anything.

"There are three teams in a group – what is that. One gets promoted, one gets relegated. The second team plays for nothing, for holidays.”
