How to watch Wales vs Austria Live Streaming

As much progress as Welsh football has made over the last decade or so, there remains one goal unachieved.

Qualification for a World Cup has eluded every great Welsh player since 1958, with a number of high-profile missed opportunities along the way.

Now, they are presented with their best chance in years. Only two games stand between Wales and Qatar 2022, with a game against Austria up first.

While the development of the Welsh game is about so much more than just two players, it could be poignant few games for Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey in particular.

Two of the greatest players the country have ever produced, this will surely be their last crack at taking Wales to a World Cup.

The winner of this, and Austria didn’t exactly make the greatest show of themselves during their qualification campaign, faces a final against the winner of Scotland and Ukraine, rescheduled for June.

Wales – Austria

Gareth Bale latest

The Real Madrid star is not thinking about anything other than this game.

“I have not thought about anything other than this game or planned for anything after,” he said. “Thinking about the future can cause doubts in your mind, so I have not been thinking about that. It is a distraction.”

“I wouldn’t say it would be a regret if I did not play in a World Cup, as it is not really in my hands, but it is something I would love to achieve for myself, my country, the fans of Wales.

“It will only be a regret if we don’t give 100 per cent and leave anything in the tank.”
