Quick question: who won the inaugural Nations League? No, no, STOP googling it! If you didn't know it was Portugal, you're not alone.
With the Portuguese not being Ing-ur-land, UK media interest in the fledgling competition had evaporated long before a beaming Roni lifted the trophy following victory over the Dutch in Porto last year.
And now this overlong, convoluted mess - the 'brainchild' of disgraced ex-Uefa president Michel Platini - has lumbered back into view, bigger and more confusing than ever.
Uefa have responded to criticism of the first, unwieldy Nations League as only they can - by bloating it even more, from 142 to 170 games, played over the coming months in 55 countries, with the 'finals tournament' some time next year.
And in the midst of a global pandemic to boot.
Their logic: okay, you may hate the format and, admittedly, the planet is diseased, its countries' borders opening and closing like goldfish mouths, not to mention a carbon footprint that would rile Greta Thunderbird - but, hey, you can never have enough footy, right?
Followers of Scotland, who drew at the weekend with Israel - the team they'll meet next month in the European Championship play-off semi-finals (which themselves are a hangover from the LAST Nations League) - and will play yet again this year in the return Nations League 2020 fixture, may not agree.
How do you say "enough already" in Hebrew?
Not only that, but if a country fails to produce 13 Covid-free players, it forfeits the tie - yet is given until virtually the last minute to make a final decision.
Cue postponements only hours in advance of a match that has already had squads travelling, testing and quarantining.
If top flight players like Manchester United's World Cup winner Paul Pogba, who were already living in a societal bubble before Covid-19 came along, can contract the potentially lethal disease, how many precious superstars will end up being risked for the runt of the litter when it comes to international competition?
You'd almost think Uefa had borrowed the plot of legendary satirical comedy The Producers and are aiming to turn out something so excruciatingly awful, no one would want to see it.
But, of course 'Springtime for Hitler', ironically, put loads of bums on seats.
And so will the unloved Nations League (albeit via coronavirus-era bums on sofas), and in sufficient numbers too, for Uefa to guarantee seven-figure sums for participants.
Not only that, but there will be a much fairer distribution of cash between the big fish and the minnows.
Northern Ireland, for instance, are guaranteed around £2m just for taking part, with the additional carrot of another two mill if they top their group.
The winners of the competition (which, if you include World Cup play-offs based on Nations League performances, rumbles on to March 2022) will pocket £5.35m and that impressive 71cm tall trophy that Ronaldo currently uses as a door stopper in his downstairs bog.
Okay, perhaps I'm being a tad unfair here.
Everyone hates friendlies - and a growing number of football supporters loathe the increasingly regular 'international breaks' from the domestic game - but at least the Nations League, which is supported by all Uefa associations, gives every match a level of genuine competitiveness.
Look no further than Friday night in Bucharest, and the unadulterated joy on the exhausted Northern Ireland players' faces after supersub Gavin Whyte's dramatic last-gasp equaliser.
That goal wouldn't have gleaned a similar response had they drawn 1-1, having been down to 10 men for most of the game, in a friendly.
Having said that, in the previous tournament - where groups comprised just three teams - there was the potential for farcical scenarios such as England going into their final group match with Croatia knowing that the outcome would be the difference between reaching the semi-finals or 'relegation' to the second tier.
And for a while it looked as if they'd suffer the ignominy of the latter, before good old 'Arry Kane popped up with a late winner.
This time the groups will comprise four teams - a revamp which belatedly saved European behemoths Germany, along with 'the two Irelands', from embarrassing relegation to, respectively, Leagues B and C.
Apart from sparing Germany's blushes (and how fortunate a cheeky little manoeuvre like that was for the TV companies), the larger groups also increase the likelihood of 'dead rubber' games (this time potentially in vast, empty stadiums) that continue to blight World Cup and European Championship finals tournaments.
At least with friendlies you can choose your opponents in advance for an otherwise meaningless encounter where caps are tossed around like confetti.
The winners of each of the four League A groups qualify for the finals tournament (that's more than enough explaining - Ed) and, hopefully by that time, the curse of Covid will have lifted and fans will be allowed back on the terraces.
Maybe Platini was onto something after all, if for no other reason than 'something' is better than nothing.
There was a frisson of excitement down south when Jack Grealish was initially left out of the latest England squad.
Grealish represented the Republic up to Under-21 level before switching allegiance to the country of his birth five years ago.
Since then, the Aston Villa captain has been kicking his heels waiting for a full international call, which finally arrived following withdrawals from Gareth Southgate's squad for their Nations League double header with Iceland and Denmark.
Prior to that, speculation was rife in the Republic that world governing body Fifa were about to change the eligibility rules, thus allowing players like Grealish to switch back to their initial adopted country. Alas, not so.
But at next week's (virtual) Fifa Annual Congress in Zurich for the TV companies - no all-expenses-paid Swiss jolly this year, lads- rule changes would allow certain players to switch countries more than once in certain circumstances.
For instance, if they've played no more than three games for one country - even competitive ones - before the age of 21, and at least three years before their requested 'move'.
This change, which comes into effect immediately if accepted, will benefit a lot of players with dual nationality who started out as promising youth internationals but later found themselves in the wilderness when it came to senior caps.
Birmingham-born Grealish, who has Irish grandparents, is NOT one of those, having already played seven times for England Under-21s.
The new regulations will almost certainly, however, increase the cross-border traffic between Northern Ireland and the Republic, recently reprised by the high-profile 'defections' of Belfast-born pair Mark Sykes one way and Stephen Mallon the other.
You know the sense of relief you felt when an up-and-coming youngster played his first competitive game in a green and white shirt, thus removing him forever from the greedy clutches of the other lot from across the border? That's gone.
