Wales have been given a tough draw to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, being drawn with the Number 1 ranked team in the World, Belgium as well as fellow UEFA Euro 2020 Finalists, the Czech Republic. Their group of five also contains Belarus, who the Welsh only beat 1-0 in a friendly in Cardiff back in September 2019 and relative minnows Estonia who they haven’t faced since 2009. Matches will be held in March, September, October and November 2021.
The top team in the group will qualify for the World Cup being held in Qatar in November 2022, with the team finishing second entering the play-offs to be held in March 2022. Even if they finish outside of the top 2 of their qualifying group, Wales still have a strong chance of making the play-offs as one of the best two Nations League group winners.
