The World Cup draw has given Wales a real chance of World Cup qualification with a semi final against Austria and – if successful – a home tie in the final against either Scotland or Ukraine who will meet at Hampden Park.
The draw this afternoon threw out some interesting possibilities -one of them being the potential of Wales v Scotland and the other being a single game shoot out between Portugal and Italy, at least one of whom will miss out on the World Cup final stages.
