Ukraine to play World Cup qualifier against Scotland in June
Ukraine’s delayed World Cup qualification playoff semi-final against Scotland has been rearranged for June 1, with the winner scheduled to face Wales four days later for a place at this year’s tournament, UEFA said in a statement on Thursday.
The match was due to be played at Hampden Park in Glasgow on March 24 but was postponed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which Moscow calls a “special operation”.
