Watch Now

 

Despite the World Cup airing on FOX and FS1 in the United States, UEFA World Cup Qualifying is on the ESPN family of networks for these two final games. Once this match and Sunday’s Wales versus Ukraine or Scotland is wrapped up, the future rights are with FOX Sports. Subsequently, FOX also holds the rights to the UEFA Nations League and UEFA European Championships.

However, this UEFA World Cup Playoff is on TV via ESPN2 and the related streaming services.

Coverage from Hampden Park

The ESPN crew of Kay Murray and Craig Burley will be performing the studio coverage before, during and after the game on Wednesday afternoon. Plus, Sam Borden will be in Glasgow as a match-site reporter to provide a glimpse of what is going on with updates on any occurrences.

The commentators are Ian Darke and Danny Higginbotham. Typically, Taylor Twellman is the expected color commentator for this game. However, he will be on duty for the USMNT game that night against Morocco.

Delayed game

Originally, UEFA scheduled this game to take place at the same time as the World Cup playoff games. However, due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, UEFA pushed this game back for early in the summer. This is Ukraine’s first competitive men’s soccer match since the invasion of the country.

In the UEFA World Cup playoffs, the winner of this Ukraine-Scotland game plays Wales on Sunday, June 5. Wales defeated Austria back in March, 2-1, courtesy of a Gareth Bale brace.

Now, this game at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland, puts one of these teams on the verge of qualifying for the World Cup.

The suspension of the game for a later date did not change FIFA from its World Cup draw. Therefore, there is already a slot allocated in the final group stage for whichever team advances out of Scotland, Ukraine and Wales. That spot is in Group B. The other teams in that group are England, Iran and the United States of America.

    Once again, for no apparent reason, ESPN gives us a match with 2 guys calling it from a closet in Bristol. Why?
    Granted, it’s Darke and Higginbotham.
    And they even have a reporter on the ground!

    Also, the ambient sound from the ground is awful. We could barely hear the anthems.

    And the crowd sounds like that fake noise pumped in during the matches played in empty arenas.

    This game deserved better coverage.
