The likelihood that Wales will now reach the 2022 World Cup revealed

Wales are still stuck in the mix to qualify for the World Cup in 2022 after their draw against the Czech Republic.

Rob Page’s men took the lead at Sinobo Stadium through Aaron Ramsey’s 18th international strike, though Jakub Pesek’s effort along with a Danny Ward own goal saw the hosts go 2-1 up.

However, Daniel James struck midway through the second half to earn his side a share of the prey that ensured the race for second place in Group E remained wide open.

Given that Wales are currently in third place, they would, it seems, enter the play-offs via the Nations League.

That means they would be unseeded, which in turn would make them play from home in the semi-finals next year.

Of course, the situation can change dramatically from match to match, even though that’s how the seedings for the playoffs look like at the moment.
