Ryan Giggs greeted Daniel James for an amazing start to the season. The Manchester United winger netted the winner for Wales against Belarus on Monday in a friendly Euro Cup 2020 qualifiers match. Football fans can book Wales Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
James’ 17th-minute strike at the Cardiff City Stadium added to his tally of three goals at club level. He joined the Red Devils from Swansea City in the summer. Giggs spent over 20 years tormenting defenses from the flanks for United. Giggs has been particularly impressed with James’ quick transition to a higher level.
The 45-year-old told Gareth Vincent of BBC Sport Wales. It was a difficult one with Dan whether to rest him, but he wanted to play. When you are in form like his, players just want to play and keep scoring. He gets fans off their feet. To do what he’s done at the start of the season is amazing.
The next step obviously is that consistency, which he’s shown so far and he needs to carry on. But I’ve got no doubts that will happen because he wants to be the best. He’s a great character and a great trainer.
“He’s one of those players where you know what he’s going to do but you can’t stop it. There are so many goals he has scored like that, but it’s very difficult to stop because he can go either way.”
It’s high praise from one of the great wing wizards of the modern game. James has merited Giggs respect after transferring his prolific club form to the international stage. He scored as a substitute on his Premier League debut for the Red Devils, a 4-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford in August.
James was back among the goal-scorers two matches later when he netted the equalizer in a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace. James proved his early goal rush was no fluke by scoring in spectacular fashion to help earn a point at Southampton.
If James becomes the consistent force Giggs anticipates he will, Wales and United will go from strength to strength.
