AP sources: UEFA looks to add top-tier Nations League teams

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (AP) UEFA is looking to expand the Nations League's top tier, which would save Germany and Croatia from relegation after last-place finishes in their groups last season, people familiar with the plan told The Associated Press on Monday.

The original format of 12 countries playing in three-team League A groups last year could become 16 teams in traditional groups of four next season, the people said.

They spoke on condition of anonymity because details are confidential before the UEFA executive committee meets on Tuesday. Germany does not have a delegate on UEFA's decision-making panel.
