Coleman: Woodburn can become a 'great' player

On Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 21:45, Cardiff at the Cardiff City Stadium will host a qualifying round match for the World Cup in Russian Federation in 2018, which will meet the national teams of Wales and Austria.

The Liverpool striker took just 261 seconds to mark the occasion with a brilliant goal to win the Group D fixture, cutting Wales' gap to the Republic of Ireland in second to two points.

Serving quality football news from around the globe.

"It was a make-or-break game today and we have had it in the past and we have stood up to the challenge and the most important thing was the three points today", Bale said.

Upon making his senior debut in November 2016 against Sunderland, he became Liverpool's third youngest player in history, and his second appearance became the club's youngest-ever goalscorer after netting in the EFL Cup win over Leeds United.

The Liverpool youngster's incredible introduction to global football produced rave reviews yesterday, with manager Chris Coleman leading the praise.

After his sensational performance at the European Championships in France, where the Welsh national team really managed to impress with their game and character reaching the quarter-finals, Coleman was expected to be at least as bright as the helmsman in the World Cup, but so far the Welsh specialist and his players are not pleased with their results.

"His all-round composure was fantastic, I'm delighted for him".

"I've been working with Ben since he was 14 years old and he has an awesome attitude, he keeps his feet on the ground".

"Playing with the likes of (Arsenal midfielder) Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale I think he is now realising what the world is all about".
