Wales lost points in the race to qualify for Euro 2024 after conceding a 1-1 draw against Armenia on Saturday in Yerevan. Lucas Zelarayan opened the scoring for the Armenians in the 5th minute of play, before the visitors equalized with an own goal from Nair Tyknizyan (45 2).
With 11 points, the Welsh are second in their group D - five points behind already qualified Turkey - but are only one point ahead of Croatia, who face Latvia from 6:00 p.m. While Rob Page's men had done well by beating the Croats in Cardiff a little over a month ago, they missed the opportunity to widen the gap and could be overtaken on Saturday evening.
Already heavily beaten 4-2 by Armenia in June, the Welsh again came up against the 95th nation in the FIFA rankings. This point should not be enough for Armenia to qualify for a first major international competition either. They are fourth, three points behind the Welsh, and will travel to Croatia on Tuesday for their final group match.
