Wales youngster Neco Williams claims he turned down an approach from England before making his senior debut and he is already starting to show Gareth Southgate what he is missing.
The Liverpool full-back headed the only goal deep into stoppage time after coming on as a second-half substitute against Bulgaria, to make it two wins from two for Ryan Giggs' men and put them in early control of their Nations League group, following their 1-0 win in Finland last Thursday.
Williams was born in Wrexham but would have been eligible to play for England through grandparents – yet says he had no interest in doing so. The nations are scheduled to meet in a friendly at Wembley on October 8.

'I had interest from England but I spoke to the gaffer and I said my intentions are obviously with Wales,' said Williams before the game. 'England were trying to snap at me but I wasn't having any of it.'
Williams is highly regarded by Jurgen Klopp and he showed exactly why here. After replacing Connor Roberts in the 64th minute, he was one of Wales' liveliest players and his goal lit up a desperately drab game.
Hal Robson-Kanu found fellow sub Jonny Williams on the left and the midfielder's delivery was perfect for his namesake to nod past Georgi Georgiev in the final minute of added time.
