Wilson makes two goals as Wales move second

Harry Wilson made two goals as Wales inched closer towards World Cup qualification with an impressive demolition of Belarus in Cardiff this evening.

Wales made a dream start with Aaron Ramsey firing them ahead in only the second minute and Neco Williams doubling the advantage shortly afterwards. Ramsey added a third from the penalty spot after half time before Wilson, who had an outstanding game, came to the fore. The Fulham winger whipped in a corner to provide Ben Davies with his first Welsh goal and then saw Connor Roberts touch home his free-kick to make it 5-1. It was the first time that Wales have scored five goals in a World Cup qualifying fixture since they beat San Marino 6-0 back in August 1996.

Robert Page’s side face runaway group leaders Belgium on Tuesday night but are all but certain of a play-off place courtesy of their Nations League performance earlier in the year.
