Neco Williams scored a late winner for Wales on Sunday just three days after making his debut.

The 19-year-old Liverpool defender entered the action with the score goalless after 65 minutes against Bulgaria in the UEFA Nations League and went on to head home in the last seconds of additional time.

Williams has emerged as a potential threat to Trent Alexander-Arnold in Jurgen Klopp’s plans over the past year, making six Premier League appearances last season as the Reds cruised to the title.

The right-back was introduced by Ryan Giggs in the unfamiliar position of right midfield on Sunday, and was well placed to burst into the box to head home from the cross of Jonny Williams.

“I can’t really sum it up at the minute," he told Sky Sports.

"Before that goal we must have made 25 passes. To finish it off and get my first goal for the country is a proud moment for me, my family and it's a moment I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

“Making my debut, scoring my first goal for my country. It’s just a surreal moment.

“Hopefully I’ll keep getting chances and hopefully I can get more goals.”

Former Wales defender Danny Gabbidon said in his role as a pundit: “He’s an outstanding player already.

"His confidence on the ball, always trying to make something happen, he doesn’t take the easy option.

“What was he even doing up there? He gets in there, tries to affect things.

"Credit to him for being so confident at such a young age, it’s refreshing to see.”

Wales boss Giggs then added: “Neco, he comes on the other night and he was fantastic and it was the same today.

“He has got loads of quality. He has got confidence in his ability and he’s a great lad.

”He has brought new energy to the group. He showed that in both his cameos in both the [UEFA Nations League] games.

“I wasn't sure whether to start him today because of the performance he put on the other day, but to come on and, not only his goal, but his overall play was fantastic. So, delighted for him.”
