According to Boniek, UEFA are in talks with the South American Football Confederation over a joint Nations League that would see Brazil and Argentina feature in the expanded competition.
Boniek said, “This is the last UEFA Nations League in this format. We had a meeting with CONMEBOL, the confederation of South American countries. From 2024, teams from this continent will join the competition.
“In what format will it be? We’re still working on it. The schedule of matches for the national teams is restricted, so you can’t mix it up too much.”
