Wales suffer Euro 2024 qualification blow after drawing in Armenia

Wales suffer Euro 2024 qualification blow after a damaging draw in Armenia… with Croatia handed the chance to seize second place against Latvia

Wales prospects of reaching Euro 2024 were dealt a blow after Rob Page’s side were held to a 1-1 draw against Armenia, with their qualification hopes now out of their hands.

Page’s side knew that victories in their final two qualifiers would take them to next summer’s finals in Germany, after their memorable win over Croatia last month.

Armenia, who held their own hopes of qualification, stunned Wales in the opening minutes with Lucas Zelarayan firing in a fifth minute opener from the edge of the box.

Wales levelled on the stroke of half-time after Nair Tyknizyan headed Connor Roberts’ long throw into his own net under pressure from Joe Rodon.

Neither were able to secure a crucial winning goal in the second half, with both sides slumping to grass at full-time.

Croatia will leapfrog Wales into second if they beat Latvia in their penultimate qualifer.
