Wales vs Ukraine: World Cup Qualifying Play-off Final

Cardiff City Stadium is the venue as Wales and Ukraine battle it out for Europe's 13th and final spot at the upcoming World Cup finals.

Stakes could not be higher in this highly anticipated fixture.

While the Welsh seek their first appearance at the World Cup finals since 1958, the Ukrainians are keen to bring some joy to those back home.

Rob Page's men pulled off a crucial 2-1 win over Austria in the World Cup qualifying play-off semi-finals to set up this tie.

Now just one win away from achieving historic success, Gareth Bale and comrades will look to put a 2-1 UEFA Nations League defeat to Poland behind them.

After handing his star players the night off in Wroclaw last time out, Page will come at Ukraine at full bore.

It's been a decent World Cup qualifying campaign for Wales so far, as they've only lost one of their nine fixtures (W5, D3).

But they can ill-afford to rest on their laurels as the highly motivated Ukrainians hope to build on an emphatic 3-1 triumph over Scotland at Hampden Park.

After becoming the first nation to win a World Cup qualifier at the iconic stadium in Glasgow, Oleksandr Petrakov will be out to upset another UK side.

Sympathy for Ukraine is pouring in from around the globe as Russia's ongoing invasion continues.

Oleksandr Zinechenko and co won't need second invitation to punish any Wales' mistakes, as witnessed by their ruthless performance in Glasgow.

All eyes will be on Cardiff on Sunday, with Ukraine looking for a miracle.
