The Crystal Palace star was in good form.
Wales did what England couldn’t yesterday in the European Championships, picking up a win in their opening group game.
Goals from Gareth Bale and Hal Robson-Kanu proved enough for the Welsh to claim victory but for fans of Crystal Palace and, a lesser extent, Nottingham Forest, it was the performance of Jonathan Williams that caught the eye.
The diminutive Welshman was handed a surprise start for Wales and impressed with his work-rate and fantastic technical ability.
Which had Palace fans scratching heads.

The performance yesterday however had many Palace fans wondering why the 22-year-old youth-team product did not get a chance to shine at Selhurst Park in 2015-16.
Forest fans were also perplexed by the Palace-owned star’s performances. He barely got a look-in during his time on loan at the City Ground and many Forest fans took to blaming former manager Dougie Freedman for that apparent error.
Here is how fans of both clubs reacted to his performance yesterday:
Johnny Williams makes me smile. Really hope we play him next season. #cpfc well done Wales.— Alex Clark (@alexdclark87) June 11, 2016
Time for Pardew to start showing a bit more faith in Johnny Williams #cpfc— Tony (@mazey16) June 11, 2016
Williams has been abused tonight but tbh the blokes all over the place— Dee (@CPFC_Mitch) June 11, 2016
Never understood how Jonny Williams can't get a look-in at Palace. #cpfc— Sport Uncovered (@SportUnc) June 11, 2016
Jonny Williams could save us a few bob in the transfer market next season!! #cpfc— stripey nigel (@stripey_nigel) June 11, 2016
Would be great if we actually gave Jonny Williams a chance in the #CPFC team instead of giving him out for charity.— CPFC HQ (@CPFCHQ) June 11, 2016

It's a travesty that Dougie didn't play Jonny Williams more when he was at #nffc— Steve Gibson (@Gibbo8) June 11, 2016
