Giggs to retire from Wales

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs will announce his retirement from international football with Wales on Wednesday afternoon.

The Wales skipper will end a 16-year career with his country by playing his 64th international on Saturday against the Czech Republic in the Euro 2008 qualifier at Cardiff´s Millennium Stadium.

It is believed that Giggs made a personal decision to consider quitting in the wake of Wales´ poor display in Dublin in March, when a 1-0 defeat all but ended their chances of qualifying for next summer´s finals in Austria and Switzerland.
