Liverpool Starlet Ben Woodburn Provides Brilliant Assist in Wales Win

Gareth Bale

Threatening, albeit from distance, the visitors saw several chances spurned, the best falling to Arnautovich who should have done far better with his opportunity, and it was Chris Coleman's men who were the more relieved to go in at half-time level.

Woodburn shot to prominence with a superb victor in Saturday's 1-0 defeat of Austria, the substitute's goal preserving his side's hopes of qualifying for next year's World Cup.

Woodburn burst onto the global stage with a great strike that went on to secure three points for Wales in a tough game against Austria.

Gareth Bale has revealed he helped persuade teenage sensation Ben Woodburn commit to Wales and reject England's overtures.

The Liverpool youngster, who scored on his global debut last Saturday to beat Austria, this time crossed for Hal Robson-Kanu to head Wales in front before Aaron Ramsey's deflected strike in injury time sealed a 2-0 win.

O'Neill said: "I didn't see it back, but the players are absolutely adamant it was a penalty kick". 'I wanted to get him on board because we knew he was a great player. "He's Welsh anyway so he's ours".

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. So you try and guide him away from the problems.

But does he make Bale feel old?

"We have to do the same again in Moldova (on Tuesday)".

"Mentally I think we all still feel 17 - me, Joe (Ledley), Wayne (Hennessey), Rambo (Aaron Ramsey), all of us - we're still young in our minds, maybe not so much in our bodies. It's been good fun".

Though Moldova were stubborn in defence, Wales did not lack chances.

"We had an ice bath. quiet night".

It will be a cracking atmosphere in Belfast but you can imagine they will be nervous given how close they are to securing second spot.

Currently, Wales occupy the ninth spot, but victories over Georgia and Ireland, coupled with other results going their way, would see them rise in the table to join the likes of Iceland, Northern Ireland, Italy, and European Champions Portugal - who ended Wales' memorable Euro 2016 campaign in the semi-finals. "When that individual scores we are so happy for them but also happy for us as a nation".
