Harry Wilson's debut for Wales last night has won his grandfather £125,000 - after he placed a bet on the youngster playing for his country one day, when he was just 18 months old.

16-year-old Wilson became Wales' youngest ever player when he came on as a late substitute against Belgium last night.

62-year-old Peter Edwards from Corwen now has extra reason to be a very proud grandfather.
