Wales at the World Cup
Wales have played at just one World Cup, in 1958.
- In the 1958 qualifying competition, all Israel's opponents refused to play against them. FIFA then decided that Israel had to play at least two matches in order to qualify for the finals. Wales were chosen among all the second-placed teams to play. Wales beat Israel in two play-off matches, and reached the finals for the first and only time.
