Jonny Williams: 'Wales has a lot of top-class players now'

WALES have got a great chance to make a major tournament in the next few years, according to Jonny Williams.

The youngster scored his first goal for the U21 squad earlier this month in front of his family and many believe it's just a matter of time before the Kent-born star debuts for the senior side.

"I think we could have a great team in the years coming up so I'm excited for that," he said.

"Brazil might be a bit soon next year, but we've had a tough group to be fair. In the future I think we've definitely got a chance if we can play like we know we can do - we've got a lot of top-class players now.

"I'm hoping the days when 70-80,000 fans at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff will come back and there are a lot of young players coming through like Liverpool's Joe Allen and Swansea City's Ben Davies.

"And to train with Gareth Bale was special enough, but to play with him would be even better.

"He's got to be one of the best players in the world at the moment."

Meanwhile, Williams says his allegiance is with Wales despite the chance England can still call him up as he hasn't played for the senior squad yet.

"My dad was born in north Wales and my mum was born in England" he said.

"It wasn't really a tough decision when it came to choosing which nation I was going to represent as Wales selected me when I was at U15 schoolboy level.

"I've played all the way through to the U21s, so it wasn't really a difficult choice as the support and the opportunities they've given me have been first class.

"It was really special for me to end the game as captain of the U21s recently. Then to score, win 3-0 and get man-of-the-match for Palace at Watford topped off a really great week.

"Hopefully there will be lots more of them to come."
