Ryan Giggs scores a fantastic half-volley in the Indian Futsal League


Ryan Giggs may well be on the verge of losing his all-time Premier League appearance record to Gareth Barry but he could arguably still do a job for many teams in the top flight of English football.

At 43, he might not have the energy to burst up and down the left wing like he used to do so many times for Manchester United but the Welshman has shown his technique is still as good as it ever was in the Indian Futsal League.

Giggs is among a few retired football stars to be featuring in India and put in another impressive display for the Mumbai Warriors over the weekend.

The Warriors were 3-2 up against Chennai Singhams when Giggs decided enough was enough and let fly with a devastating half-volley from a corner.

As you can see in the video below, the ex-United winger rolled back the years by firing this rocket home into the top right corner.

The commentator was critical of the goalkeeper but Giggs hit it so hard the Singhams shot-stopper would have needed David De Gea-esque reactions to have been able to get a hand to it.

Giggs' reaction afterwards is so chilled out as well, as if to say he's done that about a thousand times before. In fairness, he probably has.

After that, the Warriors held on to secure a 5-3 win and sit fourth this year's championship.

Giggs, who won the Premier League 13 times at Old Trafford, has already offered Barry his congratulations ahead of what is expected to be his record-breaking 632nd appearance against Arsenal on Monday.

And although Giggs was more than gracious in losing the record, Barry revealed he was less grateful about the ex-England international's role in the famous 6-1 win Man City enjoyed at Old Trafford in 2011.

“I’ve done an interview with Phil Neville and he passed a message on from Giggs through the I-Pad, just congratulating me," the 36-year-old said.

“It’s lovely to hear from him, passing the Premier League record over.

“He didn’t say thanks for the 6-1 game at Old Trafford!"
