Ukraine and Scotland will meet in their rescheduled World Cup qualifying playoff semifinal on June 1, UEFA has confirmed, with the winners facing Wales four days later.
The initial match between Ukraine and Scotland had been scheduled for March 24 but was postponed due to the conflict with Russia.
There was uncertainty over how soon the fixture could be fulfilled, with a place at the 2022 Qatar World Cup at stake should the victors then overcome Wales in the qualifying playoff final.
UEFA announced in a statement on Thursday that a date for the game at Hampden Park in Glasgow had been agreed.
“The European Qualifiers playoff between Scotland and Ukraine will be played on 1 June and the winner will face Wales on 5 June in the playoff final,” read the message, declaring the schedule had been reached “in a remarkable spirit of solidarity and cooperation.”
Either Scotland or Ukraine will progress to the playoff final in Cardiff against Wales, who defeated Austria 2-1 in their semifinal, which was completed as planned in March.
