Shearer scoffs at Wales handing Giggs coach's job

Giggs, 44, played 64 times for Wales between 1991 and 2007 but, despite a trophy-laden club career, did not appear at a major worldwide finals.

"We haven't been at a World Cup since 1958 and I want to get this group of players there and be a part of it".

Giggs, 44, has been the clear favourite for the Wales job since he declared his interest last month, saying: "I've played for Wales and I've said that I want to go back into coaching".

Giggs' first match in charge will be a friendly clash with China on March 21, as the Dragons will begin their preparations for their Euro 2020 qualification campaign.

Without him for their final two 2018 World Cup qualifiers, Wales missed out on a play-off spot and their Russian dream collapsed.

Giggs has been trying to land a job since then, and has been linked with vacancies in the Premier League and Championship.
