The Manchester United superstar played for England schoolboys but was not eligible to play for their senior side.
The Cardiff-born winger was schooled in Manchester and under new Fifa rules he could have represented England.
Giggs told BBC Sport: "There was never any doubt that I would play for Wales, my family wouldn't have let me play for England!" He added: "It would not have tempted the young Ryan Giggs - it was never an issue for me.
"Obviously it was an issue for everyone else because I played for England schoolboys but I was always going to play for Wales the next year when I got to youth level."
