Wales have qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 64 years after a 1-0 win over Ukraine in the final play-off.

They will join England, the United States, and Iran in Group B after  Andriy Yarmolenko’s first-half own-goal in Cardiff's raucous noise  settled the tie.

Ukraine were undone by Yarmolenko’s 34th minute own-goal, with the forward flicking Gareth Bale’s freekick into his own net.

 Ukraine might count themselves unfortunate, with Yarmolenko denied a  penalty after clashing with Joe Allen. The incident was checked by VAR,  but referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz was not instructed to check the screen.  Oleksandr Zinchenko also had a quick freekick ruled out in the opening  minutes.

 Wales had several chances to double their lead with 15 minutes  remaining, but substitute Brennan Johnson hit the post, while Heorhiy  Bushchan made an excellent save from Gareth Bale.

Artem Dovbyk's late header looked to be sending the game to extra-time,  but an incredible save from Wayne Hennessey, Wales' best player on the  evening, sent his country to the World Cup.

“It’s the greatest result in the history of Welsh football. We’re  ecstatic – and we’re going a World Cup! It means everything, it’s what  dreams are made of. I’m speechless.

We did it for all these amazing fans, all the people throughout the country; it’s hard to describe how we’re feeling.

 “It was difficult. I haven’t done too much over the last four weeks  because of my back spasm. I just wanted to get through the game and  contribute in any way I could. We’re all just so happy.

In a parallel universe, Rob Page is doing the garden right now. In this  world, he has just led Wales to a World Cup for the first time since  1958.
