Wales’ World Cup play-off opponents, according to Robert Page, have nothing to fear. Wales drew 1-1 with Belgium, the world’s top-ranked team, in Cardiff on Tuesday to finish second in their qualifying group and earn home advantage in the March semi-finals.
Wales has avoided meeting other top seeds Italy, Portugal, Russia, Scotland, and Sweden in the last four, however they may face one of them in a play-off final to determine qualifying for Qatar 2022. As Europe fills its final three qualifying positions, Wales will host a semi-final against either Austria, Czech Republic, North Macedonia, Poland, Turkey, or Ukraine.
A draw is held in advance to determine which semi-final winner will play at home in the play-off finals, which are likewise contested over one leg.
“When our fans are rocking like they were in the last two games we’ll go up against anybody,” boss Page said after Kieffer Moore’s equaliser rewarded Wales on a night when injured captain Gareth Bale was absent. We’ll respect the teams but we don’t fear anybody. Bring it on.
