Wales ended a 64-year wait to qualify for the World Cup with a 1-0 win over Ukraine at Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday.

Although Ukraine were unlucky enough to dominate the play-offs, Wales showed extraordinary character in getting the job done.

They are heading to Qatar as one of the outsiders to pick up the trophy, but they will feel the possibility of ruining the bookmakers’ adversity during the tournament.

Recent FIFA World Cup 2022 The whole market lists Wales at 350/1, highlighting the size of the task they will face later this year.

However, with a draw against England, the United States and Iran in the group stage, Wales will believe they can advance to the knockout stage.

Manager Rob Page insisted that his team would ‘go to-to-to with Kaur’ at the World Cup, building confidence from their performances in the last two European Championships.

“We go into any game with confidence,” he said. Page told the BBC.

“We played against the United States. We know they are really strong clothes. In my first game we played against their Europe-based players.

“They (and Iran) deserve to win and when you play against a local team, anything can happen.

“We will go to-to-to with anyone – we will bring it. We got that attitude in that changing room. “

Wales has improved significantly in recent times, especially when you consider that they were 117th in the world just 11 years ago.

The 2-1 home defeat against Australia has pushed Haiti down in their rankings – a sad situation for a nation with a proud football history.

The foundation of their rise in the rankings was undoubtedly laid by the late Gary Speed, who instilled in the squad a new sense of trust and identity.

Wales subsequently reached the 2016 European Championship semifinals, four years before moving from a tough group to the knockout stages.

Page’s confidence in his team’s chances of success in Qatar is not wrong given the way they have performed at Euro 2020.

Finished second behind Italy in the group stage before being knocked out of the tournament against a lively Denmark team in the Round of 16.

Going to the knockout stages in Qatar will not be easy for Wales, it would be foolish to underestimate their chances.

Group B is the toughest in the first round in terms of world rankings, but Wales is well on its way to qualifying for the Round of 16.

They could take at least one point from their first match against the United States, while Iran should have no fear for them a few days later.

With a minimum of four points from these two matches, Wales will set nicely for their final group match against England.

The Three Lions are one of the favorites to win the World Cup, although many respected pundits believe they are less likely to win the trophy.

Manager Gareth Southgate’s extremely cautious tactics can often lead to tough performances from England and Wales leading to tough performances.

After 64 years of waiting to qualify for the World Cup, it should come as no surprise to see Wales seize the opportunity with both hands and make significant progress in Qatar.
