Wales v Ukraine live: Score updates as Gareth Bale deflected free-kick puts hosts ahead
The day has finally arrived and Wales are just hours away from finding out their fate for the 2022 World Cup. The chance to end 64 years of suffering comes tonight when Rob Page’s men face Ukraine, and we’ll be with you every step of the way.
Ukraine are the opponents tonight in the World Cup play-off final at the Cardiff City Stadium after ruling out Scotland in emotional circumstances earlier this week. Due to the ongoing conflict in their country, we will likely see such scenes later tonight.
As difficult as it may be, Rob Page and his team will have to put the feeling aside in order to qualify for their first World Cup since 1958. It promises to be a roller coaster ride. Kick-off is at 5 p.m. .
