Nottingham Forest star Brennan Johnson played for 45 minutes as Wales thrashed Belarus 5-1 last night.

The Reds performer was in fine form for his country and helped Wales score three second-half goals.

Johnson has been inspired for Forest of late and genuinely looks like he could go a long way in the game.

The 20-year-old has scored three goals and claimed three assists during his maiden campaign playing Championship football.

He is thriving in the Forest team, with Steve Cooper giving him a license to frighten opposition defenders.

Johnson spent last season on loan with Lincoln. There he scored 13 goals and claimed 14 assists as the Imps lost in the League One play-off final.

Now he’s back at Forest and making a big impression domestically and on the international stage.

Wales put Belarus to the sword with some clinical finishing.

Aaron Ramsey netted twice with Neco Williams, Ben Davies and Connor Roberts all adding strikes.

Wales will be in the play-offs for a World Cup place and face an anxious wait to find out who their opponents will be.

Johnson would dearly love to play at a World Cup and Wales will hope for a favourable draw when it’s made.

What have fans said about Forest star Johnson?

It’s fair to say that Wales fans have started to rave about Johnson just as much as the Forest supporters.

He replaced Gareth Bale last night and it’s fair to say that the Welsh faithful were impressed with his 45-minute performance.

Johnson looks tailor-made to star on the international stage and his career looks set to take off in a big way.

After last night’s showing, supporters took to Twitter to rave about the youngster who collected another cap for the national team.
