Wales v Georgia


Since gaining independence from the USSR in 1991, Georgia have not qualified for a major tournament. The closest they have come to qualifying was a home defeat in the UEFA 2020 European Championship play-off final against North Macedonia; a play off they achieved through the UEFA Nations League.


Georgia declared its independence from the USSR in 1991 having already played their first international match as an independent nation against Lithuania in May 1990.

The Georgian Football Federation (GFF) was formed in 1990 and became full members of both FIFA and UEFA in 1992. Their first competitive matches came in qualification for the 1996 UEFA European Championships.

Wales record v Georgia

Wales' first meeting with Georgia was in the qualifying campaign for the 1996 UEFA European Championships.

Vinnie Jones became the 7th player to be sent off whilst playing for Wales in the match at the National Stadium, Cardiff in 1995.

Aaron Ramsey won his 50th cap for Wales in Tblisi in 2017 with Tom Lawrence scoring his first international goal in the same game.

Wales had previously played against the USSR in Tblisi in qualifying for the 1982 FIFA World Cup.
