In the last couple of decades, Wales' national team have struggled to secure their place at big international competitions.

The team participated as part of Great Britain at the 2012 Olympics, but only veteran fans could remember when their team last took part in the World Cup in 1958.

Now, a new set of players are looking to finally return Wales to the big stage. Here are three youngsters who can help do just that...

Jonathan Williams

This England-born wonderkid has become helped Crystal Palace to promotion last season.

In 2012, he was the winner of Palace's Young Player of the Year award and has taken part in more than 50 matches for the London club. His Wales debut came in March 2013 against Croatia and he has gone on to win five caps in total.

Emyr Huws

Huws - captain of Manchester City's U21 team - hasn't played for the Citizens just yet. Since 2012. On loan at Birmingham City, he has scored two goals in 13 matches so far this season.

He made his international debut in a friendly versus Iceland in March 2014 as a result of the absence of Joe Ledley, David Vaughan and Aaron Ramsey. This is his only match for the national side to date, but that could change soon.

Ben Davies

Like Huws, this lad is a product of Swansea's academy. An injury to Neil Taylor in earlier this season opened up the chance for Davies to prove himself in front of Michael Laudrup and Garry Monk.

The defender is considered to be one of the league's best left-backs and the fact that he's only 20 makes it even better. Davies has been included in the Wales squad since September 2012 and has made a total of 10 appearances in the red jersey.

Of course, other players will help in making this dream come true for Wales. Gareth Bale is certainly one, with the former Tottenham star proving the was a hero in last week's Copa Del Rey final for Real Madrid.

There is also Aaron Ramsey, who recently returned to action after injury. He was Arsenal's most dangerous player in the first part of the season and is ready to do the same for the national team.

Could Wales become a part of a big competition after more than 50 years of hurt? With this quality and potential, everything is possible for the team in the near future.
