Wales 1-0 Bulgaria: Neco Williams' first international goal seals late win

Wales' Neco Williams (unseen) is congratulated after scoring the winning goal during the UEFA Nations League football match between Wales and Bulgaria at the The Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff on September 6, 2020.

Neco Williams' first international goal sealed a stoppage-time win as Wales maintained their perfect Nations League start with a 1-0 victory over Bulgaria at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Liverpool youngster Neco Williams combined with fellow substitute Jonny Williams in the fourth minute of time added, powering a header home with seconds remaining to seal the victory on his home Wales debut.

Wales looked on course for a frustrating draw against a stubborn Bulgarian side but, just as they did in Thursday's Nations League opener in Finland, left it late to snatch three crucial points.

The dramatic late victory sees Wales extend their lead at the top of Group B4, with second-place Republic of Ireland five points adrift ahead of their match with Finland later on Sunday.
