Qualification for the 2022 World Cup
In the draw, the Ukrainian national team was to play the first game against Scotland. This match will take place on March 24 in Glasgow.
If the Ukrainians win this match, they will continue to fight for a ticket to the Mundial. And then on March 29, they will play against the winner of the Wales-Austria pairing. This match will also be played away. And the winner of this game will go to the 2022 World Cup.

So far, the Ukrainian national team has a match schedule until September. Depending on whether our team manages to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in March, another schedule will be formed.
If the Blue-Yellows still manage to qualify for the World Cup, then they will have at least three group stage matches. The 2022 World Cup itself begins on November 21.
Traditionally, in such cases, before the tournament, the teams hold training camps and play friendly matches. For example, the Ukrainians have played three matches before Euro 2020. It is possible that they will play several matches in November, even if they do not qualify for the World Cup.
