While Liverpool talent Dominic Solanke was impressing off the bench for England against Brazil, young teammate Ben Woodburn was starring for Wales.

Woodburn scored his first international goal in a qualifier back in September, but last night was his first start at international level.

He was selected as part of an experimental XI by manager Chris Coleman in the friendly match with Panama.

Wales drew the game 1-1, with Sam Vokes missing a penalty. Tom Lawrence had given Wales a lead after that before they conceded a late goal.

Woodburn played 70 minutes of the match and looked the part, although was outshone by Chelsea talent Ethan Ampadu who was making his first start too.
