    If there is already a thread in existence, then please merge or delete this one. I can't see anything and I haven't got anyone on ignore at the moment, but maybe it's hiding in the "Can't be arsed" thread - I don't know?

    Anyway, Ryan (if I can be bothered to turn up for friendlies) Giggs' Welsh lads have a run out on Monday evening against Belarus, ranked 84 by FIFA. Wales are now ranked 24 and continuing to head downwards.

    What team will start for Wales? Will we see a run out for the squad players or will the strongest lineup get another chance to find some sort of rhythm and attacking nuance?

    Quote from Ryan Giggs here, in an article where it is suggested that he will be giving fringe players a game tonight.

    "Giggs warned that an unsettled squad of players makes it harder to select his side than it is for other international teams.

    "We are getting there. Every time we meet up we are getting there," he explained.

    "The week before you don't know what players are going to turn up. But I knew that before I took the job.

    "Its very hard to play. I talk about Denmark, they've got the same team, players with 40 or 50 caps. You see Croatia, the same. I've never had that where you change one or two players for each game.

    "It's constantly four, five, six [changes] but I knew that beforehand. Also I've given players chances. The other night there were seven players with 20 caps or less, so that's an inexperienced team.

    "You have to take all these things into consideration"

    Apparently, the squad is fully fit, so surely that is an opportunity to field an unchanged side. Perhaps he hasn't realised that? :homer:

    I might pop down, see if I can get a game. Do you think they'll have shin pads? I haven't got any.

    Yeah, they'll have shin pads.

    Only playing 5 players is a bold move, be interesting to see if they can pull it off.

    Two more new caps there with Keiffer Moore and Joe Morrell starting.
    I’m not a fan of friendly internationals, but if you’re going to have them then this is what they are best used for.
    Giggs has capped an incredible number of players since he took over. Hopefully it’ll prove to have been a shrewd move long term.

    The national anthem will be interesting with no one there to sing it!
