Wales v Georgia gets green light

international football

Wales' friendly with Georgia will go ahead as planned on 20 August at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea after travel difficulties were resolved.

Georgian nationals need a visa to visit the UK, and the British Embassy in Tbilisi, Georgia, is closed due to the recent hostilities with Russia.

But the GB Embassy in Baku, Azerbaijan, was able to process the applications.

The Georgians are keen to see the game played and the Football Association of Wales supported them.

Wales are to also scheduled to play Russia in Moscow in a World Cup qualifier on 10 September.
