Early retirement thanks to winning bet

Needless to say that the winning bet changed Edwards’ life as the money allowed him to enjoy an early retirement. “I didn’t think twice about quitting my job. My boss knew that I would retire straightaway if my grandson would make his debut for the Welsh national team”, the fortunate grandpa commented.

Early intuition

“Harry started playing with the ball yet before he could walk, which made me think about a career as a professional footballer. For that reason, I decided to place a bet that he would get the opportunity to represent the national team”, Edwards added. Wilson signed his first professional contract with Liverpool in the summer of 2014.
