Striker Ben Woodburn can become a great player, says Wales manager Chris Coleman after the substitute scored on his debut in the 1-0 World Cup qualifying win over Austria.

Woodburn, 17, struck the winner with a 20-yard shot four minutes after coming on, boosting Wales’ chances in Group D.

Coleman was wary of comparing him to Welsh stars Gareth Bale and Ryan Giggs.
