Yet another first for Tattenhall youngster, Ben Woodburn!!

Ben has scored the winner on his senior international debut for Wales as his team sealed a 1-0 victory over Austria.

Woodburn replaced Tom Lawrence after 68 minutes of the Wales' World Cup qualifier clash in Cardiff; making his maiden outing at just 17 years of age.

And, just 7 minutes after taking to the field, Ben picked up the ball 25 yards out, took a step forward and powered a sensational strike beyond Heinz Lindner to put his side 1-0 up.

Without doubt this is another magical moment in the career of Woodburn who has secured a priceless win for his nation as they push for a place at next summer's tournament in Russia.

This also adds to Woodburn's record as Liverpool's youngest-ever goalscorer.

For those of you who don't know the Tattenhall connection .... Ben is a local boy and former pupil of Tattenhall Park Primary School and The Bishop Heber High School.

Congratulations from everyone at Tattenhall Online!
