Wales are taking on Finland tonight in the Euro 2024 play-off semi-finals as they bid to join England and Scotland in the tournament this summer.

Rob Page’s side are at home in this one-legged fixture, and if they can see off Finland in Cardiff then they will qualify for a play-off final against either Poland or Estonia next week for a place in the Euros.

Wales qualified for both of the past two European Championships, memorably reaching the semi-finals in France in 2016 where they were beaten by eventual champions Portugal, before they were knocked out by Denmark in the round of 16 in the delayed Euro 2020. Wales also qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar but failed to win a game and were knocked out in the group stage.

GOAL! Wales 4-1 Finland (James, 87)

Well this time it does count! Dan James pounces on a terrible piece of defending, pinches the ball, dribbles around Hradecky and rolls it into an empty net.

RULED OUT! Wales 3-1 Finland

Presumably there is no goal-line technology at play here, because the referee has gone with VAR’s view that the ball never fully crossed the line, after a brief check of a pitch-side monitor.

The replay isn’t perfect but does seem to suggest there might have been a fraction of the ball not fully over the goal line. It’s ruled out, much to Ben Davies’ surprise.

GOAL! Wales 4-1 Finland (Davies, 79)… or is it?

Ben Davies meets a corner with a solid header, which Hradecky can only push towards his left post. The goalkeeper dives across to try and prevent the ball from going over the line but he gets there late, Davies appeals and the referee gives a goal. Now VAR is checking…

Wales 3-1 Finland

78 min: Teemu Pukki is replaced after putting in a big shift for Finland tonight. The 33-year-old, who plays for Minnesota United these days, scored their goal but it doesn’t look like being nearly enough.

Wales 3-1 Finland

71 min: Moore wastes a big chance to kill off the game! Wales ping the ball about really nicely at the back before Ampadu breaks through the lines and drives forwards. He slips in Moore with a delicious outside-of-the-boot pass, who steadies himself before shooting to Hradecky’s left, but the goalkeeper sticks out a glove and somehow catches ball between wrist and hip.
