BRENNAN Johnson scored a debut winner as Wales stunned Belgium in Wrexham to prevail 1-0 winners in a European U21 Championship qualifier last week.

The 18 year old Nottingham Forest midfielder earned seven caps for England age grade sides before switching to Wales last year.

Johnson, the son of former Ipswich and Jamaica international David Johnson, qualifies for Wales through his grandparents who hail from Rhayader, made eight appearances for the Welsh under 19s side last year.

Johnson graduated to Paul Bodin’s under 21s squad this season and struck the winner as the young Dragons beat Belgium in Wrexham on Friday night.

Johnson was also part of the Welsh side which crashed to a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Germany on Tuesday.

Famously Johnson’s father was once called up to the Welsh squad in 1999 only to switch allegiance to Scotland before it emerged the then Ipswich Town striker had only qualified for England.

While Johnson junior also qualifies for England and Jamaica the Football Association of Wales (FAW) remains confident the teenager will remain loyal to the Ddraig Coch.

Under 21s manager Bodin said: “”Players do get taken from the age-grade teams and moved up to the seniors quite quickly.

“That’s one of the big pulling factors we have when players can possibly play for one or two other nations.”
