Neco Williams will keep memories of this goal for many years as his late header secured win for Wales over Bulgaria in Nations League on Sunday.

He made his Wales debut on Thursday as Ryan Giggs’ team defeated Finland to 1-0. But Neco Williams did not waste time before scoring his first ever goal with Wales national team.

With just six Premier League appearances with Liverpool last season, the 19-year-old right-back is said to be having a promising future.

In fact, Williams was a 65th-minute substitute of Wales but the Reds’ youngster jumped higher than everyone in Bulgarian’s spot to heat the ball into the bottom of the net.

An injury-time goal as it was at the 94th minute that he delivered a whole country from a stalemate.

He expressed delight at the end of the game, but wished fans were there to enjoy with him this particular moment.

“What a feeling ! Buzzing to have scored the winner on my home debut for my country doing my family proud. Gutted the fans weren’t there to be in the moment” he wrote on Twitter.

However, The Sun reports that Liverpool whizkid nearly play for England. But he said it clear that he was breathing Wales.

“I spoke to the gaffer and said my intentions were with Wales.

“Hopefully I can get as many caps as I can for Wales and keep progressing.

“As a young kid, you always dream of making your debut. This is only the start for me.”

In addition, Williams made 17 appearances with Liverpool youth side last season. He scored one goal and provided four assists. Both in Premier League 2 and UEFA Youth League.
