Maybe not as dramatically as Manchester United, but since Giggs started there have been changes in the Wales team too.
When Giggs debuted for Wales in 1991, at the age of 17, he broke their record for the youngest player ever to play for the national team, and that record stood for a further seven years.
In Giggs’ football career the Welsh national team has played its home games at the stadiums of Cardiff City, Swansea City, Wrexham, The Welsh Rugby team (Cardiff Arms Park) and their current permanent home, The Millennium Stadium.
They achieved their highest FIFA ranking ever of 27th in August 1993.
Since Giggs started at United, the Welsh National side has had 10 national team managers, the ninth of which, Gary Speed, ended in tragedy.
After Giggs’ international retirement in 2007, Wales also achieved its lowest ranking ever of 117th in 2011.
However, at no point in Giggs’ career has Wales qualified for a major tournament.
Ryan Giggs has arguably been Wales' best-ever footballer, with the exception of John Charles. However, there is currently a challenger for that title in the mix, by the name of Gareth Bale.
It’s also worth noting Giggs signed his new contract on March 1—the day of the national saint of Wales, Saint David.
