Man Utd legend Giggs: I could never play for England

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs says he never had a chance of playing for England.

Some believe it would have been so different if Wales star Giggs had followed the route of his schoolboy career, when he turned out for England, in the misguided belief that path was open to him.

"There was a lot of confusion about the situation because I played for England Schoolboys," he said.

"Then because of the problems England had on the left of midfield, people would say to me you should have chosen England.

"But I was never able to choose England. Being asked is not something that has bothered me. You just try and explain as best as you can the reasons why."
