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.
