Teenager Ben Woodburn had an international debut to remember after scoring a superb goal against Austria in Wales’ Group D World Cup Qualifier in Cardiff.
Woodburn entered Saturday night’s tight contest, which was goalless at the time, in the 69th minute as a substitute for Sam Vokes
And in the space of just five minutes, he turned himself into a national hero after scoring a fabulous goal from long range to deliver a crucial win for Wales in their hunt for World Cup qualification.
A poor clearance from Austria defender Kevin Danso was followed up by a loose header from Aleksandar Dragovic. The ball eventually landed at the feet of Woodburn, who picked the ball up 25 yards from goal and he rocketed his strike into the bottom corner of the net, beating Austria goalkeeper Heinz Lindner.
The goal proved to be decisive as Wales’ 1-0 victory means Chris Coleman’s side are now just two points off second-placed Republic of Ireland, with Serbia four points ahead in top spot.
