Ukraine and Spain will lock horns tomorrow in the final of the IBSA Partially Sighted Football World Championships, which are taking place as part of the Seoul 2015 IBSA World Games.

Ukraine topped the five-team group to qualify as home team for the final, taking a maximum 12 points from their four games. Spain confirmed its slot in the final this morning thanks to a 3-1 win over Italy.

Ukraine and Spain will meet tomorrow (Saturday) at 12:00 to decide who is crowned IBSA World Champions in the partially sighted (B2/B3) category.

Spain will be looking to emulate their recent success at the European Championships in Italy last December, where they defeated Russia in the final, while Ukraine will seek a repeat of the 2-0 win over Spain earlier this week in the group stage.

Italy and Japan will meet at 10:00 in the third-fourth place match for the bronze medals. Korea finished fifth in the World Championships.
