World Cup Playoff: A new date has been set for Scotland’s postponed World Cup play-off semi-final against Ukraine, which will take place on Wednesday, June 1.
The winner will face Wales on Sunday, June 5, with both matches shown live on all sports channel.
The match was originally scheduled to take place on March 24 at Hampden Park, but it was postponed owing to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The winner of that matchup was scheduled to face Wales, who defeated Austria 2-1 in their semi-final, but that matchup was also postponed due to the weather.
