'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Emotional Farewell For Giggs

Ryan Giggs's international career has ended in a pretty dull draw against the Czech Republic.

United's Welsh Wizard has announced on Thursday that today's qualifier would be his last international game as he aims to concentrate on prolonging his career at Old Trafford.

His last game in the Welsh colours will not be his most memorable though the home side had their bright moments in a 0-0 draw and Giggs himself came closest to break down the opposition but his shot was saved by Petr Cech.

'I should have scored. I had done all the hard work, beat a couple of men, and then I just whipped it too much really,' he admitted.

'I put it in the middle when I should have put it in the corner.'

The 33-year-old veteran winger gave his backing to the squad, claiming that the future is bright with a lot of talents around.

'It's a shame I couldn't have gone off with a win, but the fans have been great from day one,' he told Sky.

'It's disappointing really, with the chances we created. We just couldn't put the ball in the net.

'But that's the benchmark now. It was a great performance.

'The defence never gave them a kick and we created chances, so that's what we need to do in the future.

'Czech Republic are a very good team and we made them look ordinary at times. That's what we are capable of doing.

'The future's looking really good.'

Maybe but will Wales ever have such a player again? I doubt it.

I'm happy he's not. His international career commands respect whereas every England international, regardless of their quality, receive scathing and often unfair criticism. Scholes's talents weren't appreciated until he retired from international football.

Wales will miss Giggs.....being withdrawn from every 4 out of 5 games! Was decent when allowed to play by Fergie.

He was withdrawn only from friendlies, he was always eager to play in competitive games for Wales.
