Wales Draw vs Belgium Helps them Secure Home Draw in their World Cup playoff semi-final.

Belgium already Qualified automatically for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and Wales already were in the Play-offs but the Draw will automatically give them the home advantage vs whoever they’re drawn with on November 26. 

Kevin De Bruyne silenced a noisy Cardiff crowd inside 12 minutes, but Kieffer Moore equalized from a shaky and lackadaisical defensive error before half-time to give Wales the point they craved. Neco Williams almost snatched a late win for Wales but his vicious swerving shot was well saved by Koen Casteels.

Although Belgium enjoyed as much as 75% possession at times, Wales applied themselves superbly with a spirited team effort and had chances to claim another memorable victory over Belgium, whose only defeat in their previous 47 qualifying matches had come here at Cardiff City Stadium in 2015.

Already guaranteed a playoff spot through their Nations League results, Wales were determined to secure a home tie in March by finishing second in Group E. The point was enough to finish above the Czech Republic and take their place among the six seeded teams in the playoffs.

Turkey needed to win by four goals in Montenegro to deny Wales a home tie but could only manage a 2-1 victory.
