ONE of North Wales' finest footballing talents has spoken of his 'love' for Wales after they qualified for their first World Cup in 64 years.

The 1-0 win over Ukraine in Cardiff on Sunday (June 5) meant Rob Page's side are off to Qatar to make their first World Cup finals appearance since Sweden 1958.

Among those to play in that win was Harry Wilson, who came on from the bench late on.

Born in Wrexham, the Fulham FC winger went on to attend Ysgol Dinas Bran school in Llangollen and was brought up in the Denbighshire town of Corwen.

From a young age, his footballing talents were clear to see and the family made national headlines when he made his international debut for Wales aged just 16 years and 207 days old v Belgium in October 2013.

That is because his grandfather, Peter Edwards, netted £125,000 as a result of having placed a bet of £50 with bookies William Hill on Harry to someday go on and play for Wales when he was just 18-months old.

By now, he has starred for the likes of Hull City, Derby County, Bournemouth and Cardiff City at both EFL Championship and Premier League level before arriving at current club Fulham who will also play in the top-flight next season.

Following Wales' historic World Cup qualification on Sunday, Wilson took to Twitter to talk about his 'love for Wales'.

The 25-year-old has 36 caps and 5 goals for his country so far and is expected to be part of that World Cup squad for Qatar 2022.
