Ryan Giggs hails new Manchester United winger

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has hailed new Manchester United winger Daniel James following Wales 1-0 friendly win over Belarus on Monday night.

James - who has scored three goals in four games for United since his summer switch from Swansea - curled home a superb 17th-minute winner from 18 yards before being replaced by Gareth Bale after 50 minutes.

“He (James) is one of those players, you know what he's going to do but you can't stop it,” Giggs said. “There are so many goals (he's scored) like that. He can go either way.

“Early on when I saw DJ, just like any young winger, there can be that improvement in the final ball and scoring more goals but he's doing that. To do what he's done at the start of the season is amazing.

Consistency Step

“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.”

On a positive night that brought a rare clean sheet for Wales, there was further good news in their European Championship qualifying section.

Leaders Croatia was held 1-1 by bottom team Azerbaijan in Baku, while Hungary - who started the evening in the second spot - lost 2-1 at home to Slovakia.
