A WALES international footballer - born and raised in Wrexham - has hit back at Amazon Prime for mistakenly branding him as being English.

22-year-old Neco Williams is from Cefn Mawr and is a former pupil of Ysgol Rhiwabon.

Having previously played for Liverpool, the full-back now plays for fellow Premier League side Nottingham Forest.

As well as that, the full-back has become a vital part of the Wales national team, even playing in the nation's first World Cup since 1958 when he donned the red shirt at Qatar 2022 last December.

Following Forest's impressive 3-1 Boxing Day win at Newcastle United, Williams took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to celebrate - and also corrected an error made by Amazon Prime.


A Chris Wood hat-trick sealed a memorable win for the visitors at St James' Park.

But, when Williams was introduced to the field on 70 minutes, the graphics next to his name popped up displaying an England flag.

After the match, he posted; "Merry Christmas, 3 pts, Chris wood. @primevideosport I am Welsh."

Several Wales fans were pleased to see that Williams was quick to point out the error.
