Wales have announced the appointment of Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs as their new manager on a four-year contract.
The 44-year-old will be taking on his first major managerial role, his only experience so far having come in a four-game stint in interim charge of United after David Moyes was sacked.
Giggs, capped 64 times by Wales in his 24-year professional career, takes over from Chris Coleman, who left the role in November to take over as manager of Championship side Sunderland.
The former winger told reporters: "I am so proud to have been given the honour of managing the national team.
"The challenges that we have ahead of us with the Nations League and qualification for Euro 2020 excite me a great deal.
"I can't wait to start working with the players as we prepare for those crucial games later in the year.
"I know that the criticism is going to come and the way to combat that is to win games and give it my all, which I'll do.
"I'm just itching to get back into football, because that's where I feel comfortable, that's where I belong.
"So many times it's been said that a good career as a player doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be a good manager. But I think that's down to the individual.
"I'll do exactly what I did when I was a player - be professional, give it my all and enjoy it."
