It all comes down to this.

Wales host Ukraine in the World Cup play-off final in Cardiff this afternoon, looking to make their first appearance at the game’s biggest competition since 1958.

For the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, two of the country’s greatest ever players, this could well be the last roll of the dice.

Usually so strong in Cardiff, Rob Page’s side are up against it.

Ukraine overcame Scotland on Wednesday in emotional scenes and qualification for the 2022 World Cup would be one of the most remarkable sporting stories of the world.

What was so impressive about their win in Glasgow is just how routine it looked for a team playing against the backdrop of turmoil.

Wales, however, have a job to do.

The generation to have given them so much are surely in their final days now, with a World Cup appearance all that’s missing.

Such a tight game.

Ukraine will be wondering how they haven’t scored and, likely, how they haven’t won a penalty. And, what Yarmolenko was thinking for Wales’ goal.

Another Wales goal and it’s all over. A Ukraine goal? Wouldn’t bet against them getting another.

Half-time

Bale’s deflected free kick is the difference. Ukraine firmly the better side, though.

45min: Heart-in-mouth time for the Wales defence as we enter stoppage time with the Ukraine corner delivery bouncing awkwardly in the penalty area before Hennessey pounces on it.

43min: Wales suddenly in no rush as half-time approaches. James gets a lengthy talking to by the referee for seemingly looking for a foul.

41min: Hold on, VAR checking for a Ukraine penalty, Allen with a possible trip on Yarmolenko.

…not given. Looked soft.

40min: Ukraine look, understandably, a but shell-shocked by that. They need to regain their composure.

Zinchenko goes some way to do that with a fine low shot towards the near post.

GOAL!

35min: Cometh the hour…. Bale fires home a free kick (kinda)!

Yarmolenko inexplicably heads the shot past his own keeper.

34min: Talking of Bale, Wales have won a free kick in very much his territory…
