Recently, FIFA has officially announced that Poland will enter the play-off final round of the 2022 World Cup Group B after Russia has been eliminated.
The opponent in the final match for a ticket to the World Cup with Poland will be the winner of the second semi-final match between Sweden and the Czech Republic.
According to the original schedule, the match between Poland and Russia was also scheduled for March 24. However, FIFA and UEFA decided to remove Russian teams from all international competitions.
A statement from FIFA: “Following the decision on February 28, 2022 adopted by the UEFA Executive Committee to suspend the Russian teams until further notice, the FIFA decided Poland will go to the final of group B on March 29. They will face the winner in the second semi-finals, the Czech Republic vs Sweden“.
In addition, FIFA also announced the postponement of the match between Scotland and Ukraine in group A to June.
This is a decision based on the request of the Ukrainian national football team.
“On March 3, 2022, the Ukrainian Association of Football has written to FIFA requested that their qualifying match(s) be rescheduled due to the current circumstances”.
After consulting, UEFA and the four member countries of group A, FIFA approved this request.
The match between Scotland and Ukraine, originally scheduled for March 24, 2022, will now be postponed to June, 2022.
However, the remaining match of Group A, Wales – Austria will still take place normally according to the old schedule on March 24.
