Last week, Ukraine asked the world soccer governing body to postpone the match. Many members of the Ukraine national team play in the country’s national top flight, which was halted due to the Russian invasion.

“Following consultations with UEFA and the four participating member associations in Path A of the European qualifying play-offs, it was unanimously agreed in a spirit of solidarity to accept this request,” FIFA said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The match between Scotland and Ukraine, initially scheduled for March 24, 2022, will now be postponed to the existing June window and consequently the match between the winners of Scotland v. Ukraine and Wales v. Austria will also be postponed to the same window,” the statement continued.

Wales take on Austria on March 24. The winner of that match will play the winner of Scotland-Ukraine for a place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

On Monday, FIFA announced new measures to allow Ukrainian players and coaches to work abroad, as well as foreign soccer players who want to leave Russia.

FIFA also announced on Tuesday that Poland had qualified for the next round after their scheduled qualifier against Russia was canceled. On February 28, FIFA, along with UEFA, suspended Russian teams from playing in competitions “until further notice.”

Poland will now face the winner of Sweden and the Czech Republic for a place in the World Cup.

The World Cup is scheduled to start on November 21.
