Aston Villa’s Neil Taylor is excited by Chris Coleman’s decision to opt for youth in his latest Wales squad, which includes two Liverpool youngsters, Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson.

Taylor believes that it is down to him and some of the more familiar faces to show the uncapped Woodburn a thing or two.

The 17-year-old could earn his first senior international cap after making just a handful of appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season.

Woodburn has scored once in seven first-team appearances in his breakthrough campaign at Anfield but has also impressed for the club’s Under-23 side as he has hit six goals in 12 games mainly playing as a winger.


“Hopefully he’ll learn off what we’ve been doing and the camaraderie in the team and how we perform together and train for games,” said Taylor to BBC Wales Sport.

“He’ll get used to all of that, which is what we need. We need the young lads to see how we do it. They’ve obviously seen us have success but they haven’t seen it first hand, how we work on a day to day basis.

“It’s great experience for young lads to see where the bar is at for the future.”

Harry Wilson, has already made his first Wales appearance when he became the country’s youngest ever senior player when he played against Belgium at the age of 16 years and 207 days.

Taylor is an experienced Wales international and has earned 38 caps for his nation since making his debut in 2013.

He played a starring role in Wales’ impressive Euro 2016 campaign which saw them get all the way to the semi-finals before they were knocked out by eventual champions Portugal.
