It says much for the talent of the 17-year-old that he was one of the players that Chris Coleman turned to at a time when they badly needed a breakthrough and the Liverpool youngster delivered with a long-range strike.

Gareth Bale went for a then world record fee when he joined Real Madrid2018 World Cup qualifiers: Moldova v WalesVenue: Stadionul Zimbru, Chisinau Date: Tuesday, 5 September Kick-off: 19:45 BSTCoverage: Live commentary on BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru & BBC Sport website and BBC Sport app, plus live text commentary.

Andy King expects Ben Woodburn to have a big future with Wales after his dramatic introduction to global football.

Teenager Ben Woodburn enjoyed a dream global debut as he fired Wales to a 1-0 victory over Austria in Cardiff on Saturday to bolster their chances of reaching next year's World Cup.

Three points looked as though they would agonisingly slip away until Ben Woodburn, the star of Saturday night's 1-0 win over Austria, came off the bench to tee up Hal Robson-Kanu for an 80th-minute opener.

"I am happy to see someone new, but I don't know if the manager will pick him to play in the first XI against us".

Kathy Griffin's No Longer Apologizing for President Trump Beheading Photo
While photographer Tyler Shields also received some scrutiny, it was Griffin who bore the weight of the photograph's criticisms. When asked about the photo during her satellite interview, Griffin retracted her apology . "I'm no longer sorry ".

Bale remains the youngest goalscorer in Welsh history, his curling free-kick against Slovakia on 7 October 2006 coming when he was 17 years and 35 days. "Put the pressure on us - we have the experience to deal with it and we can guide him".

"You could put him in any position and we would rise to the challenge, he's that motivated".

"The main aim is to get Wales to the World Cup finals and he will be in that set-up if he can do that, so [he needs to] keep his head down and keep on working hard". "It's been good fun".

Ramsey is regarded as one of the leaders of the Wales side, but against Moldova he was guilty of dwelling on the ball too long and failing to provide efficient defensive cover. "We will be okay if we do what we did in the second half tonight".

The play-off matches will be between the eight best runners-up in the nine qualifying groups and for Wales to finish second they must win their final two matches next month, away to Georgia and then at home to the Republic of Ireland. "When that individual scores we are so happy for them but also happy for us as a nation".
