BRING ON ROY; New Wales Boss Giggs Can't Wait to Face United Pal Keane


Byline: PAUL O'HEHIR

Old Trafford legend Giggs, 44, added: "I wasn't part of the October game but I watched it. The players were disappointed to lose.

"I don't know about revenge but you don't often get a chance to play teams again so quickly at international football, so there's a chance to get a better result. …
