Wales Qualifies For The World Cup For The First Time Since 1958

After defeating Ukraine in Cardiff, Wales qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.

Andriy Yarmolenko accidentally deflected Gareth Bale’s 34th-minute free-kick into his net, sending Wales to Qatar and they will be in the same group as the United States and Iran.

The heroic Ukraine team, on the other hand, suffered heartbreak. After defeating Scotland earlier this week, Ukraine were expecting to give their entire country a boost during these trying times. They can be tremendously proud of their achievements, even if they did not qualify for the World Cup.

At Cardiff City Stadium, they were the better team, but it wasn’t their day. Early on, a fast free-kick by Oleksandr Zinchenko was disallowed, and they will feel they should have had a penalty when Yarmolenko was hauled down by Joe Allen.
