Grandfather Of Harry Wilson, Wales Soccer Player, Wins Big On Bet (VIDEO)

Talk about confidence. The grandfather of Harry Wilson, a 16-year-old soccer player for Wales, was so sure his grandson would become a soccer star when he was a toddler that he bet on it.

When Wilson was 18 months old, his grandfather Peter Edwards made a £50 bet that his grandson would eventually play for Wales, via BBC News. Edwards won. Wilson made his international debut on Tuesday as a substitute, becoming Wales' youngest player ever.

With 2,500/1 odds, Edwards won £125,000 and retired a year earlier than he planned, per the Guardian.
