Ryan Giggs reveals there are incentives for Wales to top UEFA Nations League group and anticipates tough Denmark clash

Wales manager Ryan Giggs reckons there are plenty of incentives for the Red Dragons to top their UEFA Nations League group ahead of tomorrow’s game against Denmark. 

Wales are currently top of the group and can move five points clear of Denmark if they win tomorrow and Giggs is keen for his side to top the group – which also features the Republic of Ireland.

And the Manchester United legend is looking forward to the task which Denmark will present, as they seek promotion in the Welsh Capital tomorrow. “There are lots of incentives to top the group,” revealed Giggs.

“It would be great. We started off wanting to win, we wanted to win the first one – Nations League. It’s not going to be easy again a top side. They’ve proved they are tough to beat.

Giggs was disappointed with the way that Wales performed earlier on in the group against the Danes, as a Christian Eriksen brace gave the Scandinavians a 2-0 victory, in Aarhus and is expecting a response from that game with tomorrow’s clash in mind.

“I was more unhappy about the result really. We were definitely in the game up until the penalty. They had a week to prepare so we had a lot of things to combat. We need to play better and I’m sure we will do that.

“It means a lot and I said that in my first games in charge in China. It’s always good when you have something to win at the end of games or a group of games. I think, overall, it’s been a success because all the way through the groups, it has been competitive.”

With a sell-out anticipated at the Cardiff City Stadium tomorrow, Giggs is looking forward to an electrifying atmosphere in South Wales.

“The players probably know more than me about the experience here,” he said.

“I had a fantastic reception and the team did, but that wasn’t full and this is full so I expect it to be even better.
