Wales star Neco Williams dealt with heartbreaking death of grandad a day before World Cup

Date:


“On Tuesday morning before we flew I got the message that my Dadcu had passed away. This achievement was for him, and I hope I made him, and all my family/friends proud.”

Wales’ first game in the World Cup since 1958 and it appeared as if they would be heading for defeat after a first-half strike from Timothy Weah.

But the Welsh – spurred on by half-time substitute Kieffer Moore – fought back valiantly and grabbed a deserved equaliser from the penalty spot after Zimmerman fouled Bale inside the box, with the 32-year-old picking himself up to fire past Matt Turner.

Page’s men face Iran next in a crucial encounter in Group B on Friday after their entertaining draw at the Al Rayyan Stadium, before facing England in an all-British clash on Tuesday, November 29.
