Wales 1-0 Ukraine

Goal: Jarmolenko (34ECSC) for Welsh

64 years later, Wales rediscovers the joy of playing at the World Cup. 64 years after the 1-0 defeat for Pelé’s goal in the quarterfinals against the future Brazilian winner, the Welsh will finally be able to sing The land of my fathers before the World Cup match. To do this, they had to release very good Ukrainians in Cardiff this Sunday. An even more convincing and game-attractive selection of Ukraine came across the excellent Hennessey. The goalkeeper was basically a big man of this qualification. With Gareth Bale, of course, behind the goal.

Gareth Bale, of course

Contrary to what they did last Wednesday in Glasgow, the Ukrainians took direct control of the match and did not let themselves be driven into a corner. On the contrary, they are the ones putting pressure. Zinchenko, for example, competes in ingenuity by driving a distant free kick into Hennessey’s goal when no one is ready. Not even the referee, who did not whistle and revoked the audacity of the Manchester City player (3.E). But the scene is set to and Collection he will go into his opponent’s bacon. Finally, rather Hennessey. Because a Welsh goalkeeper who is asked for a blocked and brutal shot (9E), won his duel against Yaremchuk (12E). Visitors clearly dominate their subject, and Karavaev, who lacks recovery in boxing, cannot reward this good start (22.E).

Finally, the trend of this early game is summed up by Zinchenko: a Manchester City player scratches the ball at Allen’s feet, but his heavy shot pushes back Hennessey, until then a man from Wales. The man the whole country is waiting for, however, finds himself in the spotlight: discreet, as if playing for Real, Gareth Bale plays a direct kick from 30 meters, whose unpretentious track pushes Yarmolenko to clear his head … Nice attempt, but in fact cheats his own goalkeeper and let Cardiff explode in the rain (1-0, 34E). UEFA has rightly decided to score a goal for the Ukrainians. Still, the Welsh give their star full recognition because it could be his last game.

A bottle of Hennessey

At the end of the first period, the Dragons approach the second act with the same dynamics. Daniel James launches Moore, who makes the right choice by returning to Ramsey, but the Glasgow Rangers player is completely absent (48E). What does not cool the locals continued to push until Yarmolenko finds a good shift towards Mykolenko on the left, which goes very low to the ground for Tsygankova. Hennessey pushes Yaremchuk again, who can’t frame (55E). From there, the Welsh retreated and cleaned as best they could. Ukrainian broadcasts, they are no longer as licked as in the first half. Overall, the pace is declining. Until the occasion of Johnson, who found a pole in the center on the right (75E). Subsequently, it was primarily Gareth Bale – absolutely alone in the area – who came across Bushchan and who missed the opportunity to seal the fate of this meeting (76E). Yarmolenko is not far from immediately feeling guilty, but Hennessey still holds the house (77E). This is evidenced by this extraordinary parade, on a dotted header from Dovbyk (84E). The Collection No matter how hard she pushed, she couldn’t keep up and let Wales take this last European World Cup ticket. Great match, great joy and great disappointment.
