Midfielder, 21, Liverpool
Having been on the international scene for five years after becoming Wales’s youngest ever player back in 2013 – beating Bale’s record by just over 100 days – Wilson is now beginning to find his place in the team under Giggs. He has caught the eye on several occasions this season courtesy of some sublime dead-ball wizardry. Wilson struck a wonderful free-kick to help eliminate Manchester United in the Carabao Cup, before scoring the well-struck winner for his country against Republic of Ireland last month.
What they said
“Now he has had a little taste of it, that cements his future with Wales for the next 10 or 15 years.”

Wilson’s grandfather famously won a bet, clinching him £125,000, after Wilson represented Wales, having placed £50 on his grandson becoming an international player when he was only 18 months old.
