Euro 2020 : Wales determined to get off to a flying start


Ryan Giggs says his determination to press home Wales’ ‘advantage’ at the start of their European Championship campaign was the reason behind fielding a second-string side in the 1-0 victory against Trinidad & Tobago.

Real Madrid striker Gareth Bale and other key players were missing as Ben Woodburn’s injury-time winner secured Wales a narrow success at Wrexham.

The game marked Wales’ return to the Racecourse Ground – the oldest existing ground in the world to stage international football – for the first time since 2008, and much had been made of the national team’s return to the north after 11 years.
