Brandon James Wilson (born 28 January 1997) is a Botswana-born Australian professional soccer player who plays as a midfielder for Perth Glory in the A-League. Born in Botswana, Wilson moved to Australia at a young age. He later moved to England to play youth football for Burnley before making his senior debut for Stockport County. In 2016, he returned to Australia to play for Perth Glory.

Despite having represented the Australian U20 National team, playing for the Botswana National team, the Zebras still remains Wilson's biggest dream. The national team coach Peter Butler has continued to monitor the player's performance in the A-League.

The 20 year old says the reason he left English Premier League side Burnely for a move to the Australian league was mainly due to the desire of having more game time. Wilson believes that if he could be able to play more regular football, this would boost his chances of getting a move back to Europe or the lucrative Asian leagues.

Though, he remains miles and miles away from his country of origin, Wilson says he does follow local football, but mostly the national team. The midfielder also revealed that later this year, he will be returning to Botswana, to pay a visit to his aunty in Mahalaphye.
