    Ryan Giggs "can't be much happier" after Wales hammer Republic of Ireland


    Ryan Giggs has admitted that he "can't be much happier" after Wales ran out 4-1 winners over the Republic of Ireland at the Cardiff City Stadium.

    The Dragons got their UEFA Nations League campaign off to a flying start in the Manchester United legend's first competitive match as manager, taking a 4-0 lead before substitute Shaun Williams hit a consolation for the visitors.

    Giggs said his side had set the bar in terms of their performance following their biggest win over Ireland in history, and was impressed with how his players had adapted so quickly after only joining up with the squad on the back of a round of domestic games last weekend.

    "I enjoyed the performance, and the goals, but you always think you can do better," he told Sky Sports. "The lads were magnificent, scored some brilliant goals and played some great football. I can't be much happier.

    "At the start of the season, it's juggling players who are playing regularly and have match rhythm, and like the squad having that balance of experience but bringing those young players in too.

    "You don't get long with the players, but I must say a big thank you to the staff and players really; it's been quite intense, you don't get much time on the grass, some of the players played on Sunday, so it was about recovery and then working on things as much as we can, and trusting each other with the ball.

    "It's about expressing themselves and they've done that, but now it's about maintaining that standard we've set."
