Savage: Giggs Can Run Riot
Robbie Savage believes Ryan Giggs can terrorise England in Wales' crunch World Cup qualifier on his home ground at Old Trafford this weekend.
Giggs was eligible to play for England after representing them at schoolboy level but the Cardiff-born player instead chose his native country.
Now he has the chance to inflict misery on Sven-Goran Eriksson's side on his return to action from a two-match international suspension which ruled him out of the games with Azerbaijan and Northern Ireland last month.
Birmingham midfielder Savage, who is himself banned after his red card against Northern Ireland last month, said: "For years Ryan has had to face questions like 'why didn't you choose to play for England?' because he would have no chance of playing in a major tournament.
"But that's like an insult to us Welsh lads. Now Ryan has the opportunity with the other boys on the field to make it count against England when it really matters.
"I'm confident he will be really on song which could be bad news for England because everyone knows what he is capable of. When Giggsy is at his best, he is someone who can be unstoppable."
Savage is also confident Wales have the quality to score against England and their defensive performance holds the key to whether they can pull off a shock result in the first meeting between the nations for 20 years.
He said: "I think the most important thing for us is how well we defend. I think we can score. (John) Hartson, (Craig) Bellamy, Giggs, (Simon) Davies will score against anyone in the world.
"If we can defend well then I think we'll win the game. That is the key."
