Wales travel to Wroclaw to face Poland in the first game of a new round of Nations League, but Wednesday night’s game will likely feel little more than a warm-up for the weekend’s World Cup qualifiers play-offs.
Robert Page’s side are yet to know who they will face in Sunday’s game – Scotland meet Ukraine on Wednesday – but it is clear that a win would qualify them for their first World Cup since 1958.
Poland secured their place in Qatar 2022 back in March with a 2-0 win over Sweden and should offer Wales a tough test in the first game of Nations League Group A4.
Belgium and the Netherlands, who play in Brussels on Friday, are the other two sides drawn alongside them in the lowest group of League A.
The presence of these two big hitters means Poland will be determined to get their season off to a flying start, while you feel Wales would be more interested in ensuring they go into Sunday’s mammoth clash with some momentum.
RadioTimes.com has rounded up everything you need to know to watch Poland vs Wales on TV and online.

Our prognosis: Poland vs. Wales
Given the size of Wales’ next game, the opening game of Nations League Group A4 is likely to have an oddly disappointing feel.
Still, Page will know there’s an important balance to be struck to ensure some key players are protected for Sunday’s game and his side build some momentum.
Poland, on the other hand, have already won the World Cup qualifying play-offs but will know that with the Netherlands and Belgium in the group, beating Wales will be crucial.
It should be a fun watch with both teams feeling the pressure ease off a bit. So expect a high-scoring game – although it’s difficult to separate teams.
Our prediction: Poland 2-2 Wales (16/1 at Bet365)
