Wales are just two wins away Euro 2024 qualification. Head coach Rob Page's options will be boosted by the return of winger Rabbi Matondo, Hibernian midfielder Dylan Levitt, and captain Aaron Ramsey from injury, while Rubin Colwill, Joe Low and Charlie Savage have been promoted from the U21s to add some extra options.   

Finland's final two group games produced six points – they beat Northern Ireland and San Marino – but that still wasn't enough to finish in the automatic qualifying spots.

Here's how the teams line up:

Wales XI: Ward (GK); Mepham, Rodon, B. Davies; Roberts, Ampadu, J. James, Williams; Wilson, Brooks, Johnson.

Finland XI: Hradecky (GK); Alho, Tenho, Ivanov, Peltola; Schuller, Kamara Lod, Hakans; Pohjanpalo, Pukki.

The winner of Wales vs Finland will go on to play either Estonia or Poland in the Path A final in Cardiff on March 26, with the winner of that game joining the Netherlands, France and Austria in Group D at this summer's Euro 2024 tournament in Germany.
