Scotland’s 2022 World Cup play-off semi-final against Ukraine has been postponed from its original date of March 24, according to the Guardian, with FIFA set to confirm the news. The decision was reportedly taken after Ukraine asked world football’s governing body to postpone the game.
With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the world has been turned upside down, but the biggest concern has been for Ukraine and how the country is doing. However, while the biggest concern is for the Ukrainians, they have reportedly filed and made a request to FIFA to postpone their game against Scotland. The Blue and Yellow face Scotland in the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup play-offs and were due to do so on March 24 at Hampden Park.
However, the Guardian reported that the match will now be postponed to June and FIFA are expected to confirm this soon. The report says the Scottish Football Association has been in regular contact with UEFA and FIFA over the matter since Russia invaded Ukraine to discuss the game. But that would mean moving the play-off final which was due to be held on March 29, where the winner would face Wales or Austria.
However, FIFA would agree with this decision and would be willing to move the game due to the current situation in Ukraine. But although no official decision has yet been made, the Guardian reported that FIFA would soon confirm the news and announce a new date for the game.
