Wales return to the FIFA World Cup 2022 after 64 years

Wales beat Ukraine 1-0 in the European World Cup qualifying playoff in Cardiff on Sunday to qualify for the World Cup finals for the first time in 64 years.

Wales has been waiting for this moment, for a place in the World Cup finals as it beat Ukraine 1-0 on Sunday to end the war-torn nation’s hopes of reaching Qatar and fighting in the FIFA World Cup 2022.

An own goal from Ukraine winger Andriy Yarmolenko, who headed a Gareth Bale free-kick into his own net, decided the contest.

With half of the team not been able to play in the competitive club football ever since the Russian invasion early this year and with their nation’s tragedy never far from their minds, Ukraine deserves huge credit for coming so close to making the finals for the second time in their country history as an independent nation.

There were emotional scenes at the end of the game as Ukraine’s disappointed players showed their appreciation to their more than 2,000 supporters at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Wales, who last appeared in the World Cup finals in 1958, had their keeper Wayne Hennessey to thank again as he pulled off a fine one-handed save from substitute Artem Dovbyk’s powerful header, six minutes from the end.

The crowd rightly sang Hennessey’s name in the final minutes, the first of many songs that are sure to be sung long into the Welsh night.
