Wales v Uruguay preview: Ryan Giggs aims for China Cup success
Last Updated: 26/03/18 12:12pm
Ryan Giggs will be looking to make it two wins from two when Wales face Uruguay in the final of the China Cup at the Guangxi Sports Center Stadium in Nanning on Monday (kick-off 12.35pm BST).
Giggs' first match in charge of his country saw Gareth Bale break Wales' all-time scoring record in a 6-0 victory over China.
However, they are likely to face a tougher test against Uruguay, who beat Czech Republic 2-0 to reach the final and finished second in South American qualifying for this summer's World Cup.
"Even though it was a good performance against China, we will need to play even better to win the China Cup," said Giggs.
"That's what we're preparing for. It won't be easy because we're up against a tough, experienced South American team who are very good technically.
"But it's a great challenge for our players to come up against the best in the world."
Giggs is expected to name the same team which swept aside China on Thursday.
Bale is set to win his 70th cap and skipper Ashley Williams will join Craig Bellamy on 78 to become the joint fourth most-capped Welshman.
Uruguay are preparing for the World Cup in Russia, where they are in Group A with the hosts, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani scored in their victory over Czech Republic.
"We know Uruguay have some great players, it's not just Suarez," said Bale. "We know it's going to be a difficult game, but we try not to concentrate too much on our opposition, it's more about concentrating on us and what we can do.
"They have some fantastic players and they're going to be dangerous."
