Ryan Giggs leads Wales into Tuesday's decisive Euro 2020 qualifier after an inspirational message from Sir Alex Ferguson.
Wales boss Giggs is putting the final touches to the hosts' preparations to face Hungary in Cardiff after they beat Azerbaijan on Saturday.
Victory will clinch second place in Group E and book automatic qualification behind first-placed Croatia.
And Manchester United legend Giggs, 45, admitted his former mentor Sir Alex has been in touch.
Giggs, in his first managerial post since taking charge in January 2018, revealed: “He wished me good luck the other day for the game, which he always does.
“It is an exciting challenge. It is in our hands.
“We have put ourselves in a great position but that is all we are in, a position, we still have one game to go.
“There's a really good atmosphere at the moment and we're in good form.
“But it doesn't count for anything if we don't finish the job off."
Tuesday's match at a packed Cardiff City Stadium will be the biggest international for many of the side's starlets like 19-year-old Ethan Ampadu plus Daniel James and Harry Wilson, who are both 22.
But Giggs broke into United's team as a teenager in 1991 and says his kids are scared of nothing.
Giggs, whose side are unbeaten in five games, added: “What I've seen in the young players is coming in and being fearless.
“I got given a chance as a young player.
“I believe if you give young players a chance , if you believe in their quality, that they won't let you down.
“Age doesn't really matter to me, it is the quality you have got to show on the pitch and a good attitude.”
Giggs has Joe Allen back from suspension and the experienced midfielder is likely to go straight back into the team for Joe Morrell.
But fit-again Juventus ace Aaron Ramsey, who came off the bench in Baku, may have to settle for a place as sub again.
Giggs said: “It will be tough picking the team.
"The subs as going to be important as well, it is not just about the 11 players.
“It won't be easy because there are a lot of players who played well the other night.”
