When is Scotland vs Ukraine? World Cup play-off date, kick-off time, TV channel, live stream

SCOTLAND are two matches away from their first World Cup since 1998.

But they'll have to wait a little longer than other teams to know whether they have qualified or not.

That's because their play-off semi-final at home to Ukraine has been postponed due to the Russian invasion of the visitors' country.

When is Scotland vs Ukraine?

Scotland vs Ukraine was expected to take place in June.

Saturday, June 4 was thought the most likely date for the match, with the winner then playing the final on Tuesday, June 7.

However, Tartan Army boss Steve Clarke has stated that the match may not take place until September.

He commented: “Is that [a further delay] looking more and more likely given the situation on the ground?

“If you’re honest about the situation, then, yes.

“It’s difficult to see how we’ll be playing them in June. It’s not just about the fixture.

“It’s the fact they need to get together, have a training camp and get players on the pitch with a proper period to prepare for such an important game.

“Andriy Shevchenko, who I know from my time at Chelsea, spoke well about the situation and said they’d want to play.

“But the way the situation is, I think they should get as much time as possible to try to make our game happen.

“It’s a horrible situation and the quicker we know we’re going to play Ukraine at Hampden the better, because it’ll mean the war has stopped and we’re all trying to move forward.”

A kick-off time will be confirmed when the date is known.
