Ukraine loses 1-0 to Wales in World Cup qualifier match
Ukraine missed out on qualifying for the World Cup after the war-disrupted team was beaten 1-0 by Wales in the European playoff final for the FIFA football showpiece.
Andriy Yarmolenko inadvertently headed the ball into his own net on Sunday while trying to clear Wales captain Gareth Bale’s first-half free kick.
While Wales heads to a first World Cup in 64 years – opening against the United States in November – this was an agonising end to Ukraine’s emotionally charged mission to qualify for Qatar while remaining under invasion by Russia.
Al Jazeera’s Paul Rhys reports from Cardiff, Wales.
