This is the second edition of the official international football tournament.

Four teams take part in the semi-finals and then a final – the teams are China, Wales, Uruguay and Czech Republic.

Giggs said managing Wales dugout for the first time would represent more of nerve-wracking experience than any of his 64 caps as a player.

The Manchester Utd legend said: “I’m excited for the game. I’ve been in the job now over two months and this is why I took the job, for the football.

“I’ll be much more nervous than I was as a player. I never really got nervous as a player, but coming into management is completely different as there are so many things to think about.”

Wales will have Gareth Bale and Ashley Williams available, however, Aaron Ramsey has not travelled due to undergoing a minor procedure.
