The dressing room will be the same - but everything else will feel different for Ryan Giggs when he leads Team GB into their Olympic opener with Senegal on Thursday night.

Giggs has spent 20 years playing football at Old Trafford. Only once has the 38-year-old not been wearing the red shirt of Manchester United - when he was wearing the same colour shirt as he turned out for Wales in a World Cup qualifier with England in October 2004.

On Thursday night, he will be sporting blue, creating a whole new environment for Giggs to perform in, and he said: "It is going to be strange. I have done it once before when Wales played England. That day I was in the away dressing room. Fortunately I am in the home one this time."
