Wales' Harry Wilson scores yet another stunning free-kick
Gareth Bale might struggle to fend off Harry Wilson for future Welsh free-kicks.
With Bale injured and therefore unavailable for Tuesday's Uefa Nations League clash with the Republic of Ireland, Wilson took the opportunity to prove that Wales are far from a one-man team as he curled home a gorgeous free-kick on the hour-mark.
After a drab first half at the Aviva Stadium, Wilson needed no second invitation when Harry Arter needlessly fouled Connor Roberts on the edge of the Irish area.
Having shown what he's capable of from dead ball situations at Old Trafford three weeks ago, the Derby winger did something similar in Dublin and left Darren Randolph rooted to the spot.
💥 PICK THAT ONE OUT! 💥

Manchester United fans won't need to be reminded of Wilson's abilities but in case you forgot what the on-loan Liverpool man has in his locker from distance, check out the below strike in the Carabao Cup.

Wilson's club manager, Frank Lampard, revealed that the 21-year-old is obsessed with improving his free-kicks and regularly stays late in training to perfect the technique, along with Derby teammate Mason Mount.
"He does it in training and funnily enough, when we got the free-kick, I turned around to the bench and said it was a bit too far out," Lampard told Sky Sports last month.
"It certainly proved me wrong. But I was right behind it. He got the movement and it's typical of him and Mason Mount. They practice, they're hungry, they want to be great free-kick takers, and they want to be great Premier League players in the end."
