Wales are guaranteed a World Cup qualifying play-off spot at least after Spain won 1-0 against Greece on Thursday.

The Spain victory saw Luis Enrique’s men secure a top-two finish in Group B.

And that confirmed Wales, currently third in Group E, as being guaranteed qualification for the play-offs by virtue of their efforts in the Nations League.

Rob Page’s side will now only not be in the play-offs if they win their pool for automatic Qatar 2022 qualification, which is still mathematically achievable with two games to go but appears unlikely.

Spain’s winner in Athens came via a Pablo Sarabia penalty in the 26th minute as they moved to the top of their group.

They are now a point clear of Sweden, who lost 2-0 away in Georgia, with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia notching twice in the second half.
