Wales v Ukraine live stream and team news: World Cup dreams will be decided in massive clash at Cardiff City Stadium with Gareth Bale set to feature

Wales host Ukraine in the World Cup play-off final to decide which country will play in Qatar later this year.

The Blue and Yellow have already ended Scotland’s dreams, and they will look to do the same with Wales on Sunday.

Ukraine easily beat Scotland on Wednesday

Ukraine won 3-1 at Hamden Park thanks to goals from Andriy Yarmolenko, Roman Yaremchuk and Artem Dovbyk.

However, Wales have a truly world-class player in Gareth Bale and he could make all the difference.

It was Bale’s two goals in March against Austria that got Wales this far. He will therefore seek to take his country to its first World Cup since 1958.

However, Ukraine have only participated in one World Cup themselves, in 2006, and they are determined to make their country proud in the face of the Russian invasion.

In truth, they were just too good for Scotland, so Wales will need to be better prepared than the tartan army seemed.
