The Dragons displayed another impressive performance to secure a spot in the playoffs!

Belgium were held to a 1-1 draw in their World Cup qualifier against Wales on Tuesday. Belgium were already qualified, but a draw was enough for Wales to keep their qualification hopes alive.

Wales get it done on home soil!

Belgium started the match with dominance and soon got their opener. Kevin De Bruyne broke the deadlock in the 12th minute, but a goal was not enough to disappoint the hosts.

The Dragons continued their solid performance and got their equalizer two minutes past the half-hour mark. Following a precise cross from Daniel James, Kieffer Moore fired the ball past Casteels to make it 1-1.

Both sides had multiple chances to win the game in the second half, but they ultimately settled for one point. Belgium can now prepare themselves for the next year’s World Cup, while Wales will look forward to the playoffs. The Czech Republic, who spent an impressive Euro 2020 campaign last summer, are eliminated after finishing third in the group.
