WM playoff of Ukraine relocated in Scotland to June

The playoff semi-final to the World Cup between Scotland and Ukraine is laid due to the war.

The encounter will be held in the Nation League window in the first June half, FIFA announced on Tuesday. In addition, the World Association confirmed the Freilos for Poland as a result of the lock of opponents Russia.

Ukraine had requested the relocation as she could “organize neither the journey nor the training of a team under the circumstances,” said FIFA.

Currently, the game operation rests in the country. The application has therefore been “unanimously granted in the sense of solidarity”.
