About Tyrone Mings Born on 13 March 1993, in the town of Bath, United Kingdom, into his biological mother, Dawn Johnson and her husband, Adrian AKA Adeel Mings. His lovely parents, who come from different multiracial backgrounds, collectively raised him as the sole son from three daughters. In his early years at school, he was bullied by other children because of his British accent, which made him withdraw and develop a rather timid personality.

It is from this background that he learnt how to love the game of football and try his hand at representing both England and Wales in a match, against Italy at the quarter finals of the 1996 World Cup. However, he did not represent either team, despite making several appearances for the Bath players. Instead, he decided to represent Wales, where he earned a goal during his first international appearance. It was then that he realised that he had a talent for the game and that England would be an ideal place to start his career. His family, however, were adamant that he should take up football as a full-time career, with his parent’s wishes coming true in 1998 when he moved to Taunton Rovers in Avon, Somerset.
Tyrone Mings was a regular in the Wales team that won the European Championships in 2021. He has consistently impressed for club and country, and has established himself as a talented and promising goalkeeper, both in his time with Taunton and now with Villa Park in London. His statistics record for goals made in the English top flight is impressive, but his best achievements have been as a goalkeeper, making him one of only three players to win the FA Cup in two separate tournaments. His performances have also earned him a place in the British Football Association hall of Fame, an achievement that is relatively unheard of for Welsh born players. His achievements have also led to other Welsh based players being named in the England side that won the 2021 World Cup, cementing his place as a key player in the national side.
The club that brought Tyrone Mings to England is renowned for their high standards of behaviour, a reputation that Mings has certainly lived up to. The centre back is known to be a hard man to beat when it comes to heading the ball into the opponent’s net, with many people also referring to him as “Tiny”. It has also been rumoured that the English Premier League is offering him a five-year contract to stay at Villa Park, should he decide to leave during the upcoming season. Such an offer could represent a substantial pay rise for the 30-year-old, which may prove to be the deciding factor on whether he considers his present contract with Villa Park a satisfactory deal.
As a youngster, Mings was known for being extremely tall, standing at 5ft 7in. It was this height that initially attracted the attentions of many football scouts whilst he was playing for the Welsh squad. With the physique that is characteristic of a strong and powerful football player, it would certainly be fair to say that Mings has enjoyed a good start to his career, making a name for himself at both clubs and in his native Wales. Having started out at left-back, Mings later developed a liking for right-back, making him more adept in the defensive aspects of the game. His impressive displays for Wales at the 2021 Youth Cup have also made him an integral member of the England team, where he is one of two centre backs that have so far featured, along with centre forward Wayne Rooney. Having started out at right-back, Mings has played primarily as a centre forward throughout his international career, but has also found some time on the right flank.
So what does Tyrone Mings’ status mean for the future? Well, despite being only twenty-three years of age, Mings already has a great deal of experience and it would be fair to say that he has had the foresight to become one of the best paid soccer players of all time. With his profile already high, and with four World Cups to his name, the likelihood is that Mings will continue to enjoy good income stream throughout his entire playing career, possibly even into the future. The next step for Tyrone Mings could be a lucrative role on one of the premier teams in the world; something that would further enhance his reputation as a World Cup winner and player of distinction.
