The Liverpool attacker was making his full global debut in the clash, which by winning has helped Wales keep alive their hopes of qualifying for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Woodburn shot to prominence with a superb victor in Saturday's 1-0 defeat of Austria, the substitute's goal preserving his side's hopes of qualifying for next year's World Cup.

The Liverpool striker took just 261 seconds to mark the occasion with a brilliant goal to win the Group D fixture, cutting Wales' gap to the Republic of Ireland in second to two points.

Having been invited down to Dragon Park by the FAW while still 13, he played for a combined Regional Development Boys XI - which combines the north and south Wales squads - and has remained playing for the country ever since.
