The winners will play a winner-takes-all match against Ukraine or Scotland for a place in the tournament, although that final won’t take place until June, after the other semi-final was postponed to the after the Russian invasion.

Wales have qualified for each of the last two European Championships, reaching the semi-finals in 201, but have not played at a World Cup since 1958.
