SCOTLAND will find out the date for the World Cup play-off semi-final against Ukraine in the coming days, it has been reported.

UEFA will make a final decision on the crucial play-off match this week.

Steve Clarke's side were due to face Ukraine in March at Hampden. 

However, due to Russia's invasion of the country, the match was understandably postponed.

Now, according to the Daily Mail, a rescheduled date will be announced in the next few days.

They say that SFA chief executive Ian Maxwell will fly out to Switzerland for talks with European football's governing body.

It's said that the two options on days the game could be played on are Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1.

Scotland captain Andy Robertson could potentially be involved in a Champions League final with Liverpool a matter of days before this. 

The English Championship play-offs also take place on the weekend before these proposed dates. 

They could involve any number of Scotland players from Bournemouth's Ryan Christie and Nottingham Forest's Scott McKenna.

The winners of the play-off semi will then face Wales in Cardiff on Sunday, June 5 for a place at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

With Scotland also in Nations League action that month it could potentially mean the the Scots end up playing as many as six games in June.

And with Ukraine in the same Nations League group, UEFA are reportedly considering effectively doubling up both the play-off fixture and the Nations League tie between the two countries.

It is thought that the SFA are very much against that idea though.

The Nations League clash with Ukraine was originally slated for June 7, three days after the opening fixture against Armenia at Hampden.

The other games planned for June are against the Republic of Ireland on (June 11) and away to Armenia (June 14).
