Harry Wilson's debut for Wales last night has won his grandfather £100,000 - 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.

Gareth Bale has been named Wales Footballer of the Year for the third time.

Bale, who earlier this year won the Professional Fooballers' Association and Football Writers' Association Player of he Year awards, scored 26 goals in all competitions for Tottenham and has been a rare beacon of light for Wales during a disappointing World Cup campaign.

Swansea left-back Ben Davies scooped the Young Player of the Year prize after showing remarkable maturity and consistency after being thrust into action for club and country by Neil Taylor's broken ankle.

Five more withdraw from Wales squad

Wales manager Chris Coleman has been hit by a fresh batch of withdrawals from his squad for World Cup qualifiers against Macedonia and Belgium.

Coleman had already lost Gareth Bale, Joe Ledley and Joe Allen due to injuries, while Andrew Crofts is injured and also suspended for the Macedonia match.

But a further five players have now joined that list - Swansea defender Ben Davies, Wolves' Sam Ricketts, Celtic player Adam Matthews, Crystal Palace's Danny Gabbidon and Jack Collison, who is currently on loan at Bournemouth from West Ham.

Wales confirmed nine replacements - Lloyd Isgrove (S'hampton), Owain Tudur Jones (Hibernian), Danny Alfei (Swansea), James Wilson (Bristol City), Rhoys Wiggins (Charlton), Jermaine Easter (Crystal Palace), Sean MacDonald (Bournemouth), David Cotterill (Doncaster) and Ashley Richards (Huddersfield)

Bale set to stay in Spain

Gareth Bale is set to remain in Madrid during the international break as he looks to recover from the thigh injury that has undermined the world-record signing's start to life at the Bernabeu.

Real coach Carlo Ancelotti indicated the 24-year-old winger would remain in the Spanish capital to continue his rehabilitation, despite being included in Wales' squad for their final two World Cup qualifiers.
