Giggs: There's lots of incentives to top the group
It’s all to play for tomorrow in Cardiff as Wales host Aage Hareide’s Denmark side in the final Group B game of the UEFA Nations League. A win for Ryan Giggs’ side would see them seek promotion to group A of the new competition.
Ryan Giggs has only been in charge since the start of the year, but he has made it a clear ambition that he has always wanted to win the group.
Wales have won two of their three UEFA Nations League fixtures so far after back to back victories against the Republic of Ireland.
“There are lots of incentives to top the group," said Giggs. "Firstly, to win a competitive group. You get the second bite of the cherry for qualifying for the Euros if you don’t qualify automatically.
“We started off wanting to win. It’s a new tournament, we wanted to win the first Nations League.”
Giggs is urging his team to produce another strong performance in the Nations League and insists it’s all over to his players to achieve Group A status.
“It’s in our hands now, it’s not going to be easy. They’ve [Denmark] proved over a period of time that they’re tough to beat. They’re a difficult team.”.
On the Nations League competition, Giggs added: “I think it’s been a success, all the way through the group it’s been competitive. The teams are of similar quality.”
Gareth Bale trained with the squad at Cardiff City Stadium and Giggs insists he's ready for tomorrow's strenuous test against the Danish.
"He’s good, he’s fine. He arrived here a bit later than the rest of the group, playing on Sunday evening. He’s looked good this week and he’s ready."
