Gareth Bale proved to be the difference as his two excellent goals sealed Wales a 2-1 win over Austria in their World Cup play-off.

Italy meanwhile won’t be playing in Qatar as they suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at home to North Macedonia.

The Azzurri, who broke England hearts by beating them in the final of Euro 2020, have now failed to qualify for the last two World Cups.

North Macedonia will now face Portugal in the playoff final after Cristiano Ronaldo’s side survived a late scare to beat Turkey 3-1 in Porto.

  • Wales 2-1 Austria: Full-time
  • Portugal 3-1 Turkey: Full-time
  • Italy 0-1 North Macedonia: Full-time
  • Sweden 1-0 Czech Republic : Full-time after extra-time
