Wales manager Ryan Giggs fears that he won’t be able to work with his players until March 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Welsh have not played since November 2019 where they claimed a crucial 2-0 victory over Hungary that secured their qualification to Euro 2020. The summer tournament has since been pushed back one year due to the virus outbreak.
Wales had warm-up matches against USA, Austria and Holland lined up but they were also cancelled due to the pandemic.

With doubt also looming over the Nations League, which is set to kick-off in Autumn, Giggs is worried that he won’t see his players for ‘over a year’.
‘Potentially we won’t have been together for over a year, it could be 18 months if it goes to March which isn’t ideal,’ he told MUFC Group Chat.
‘We are supposed to play games in September, October and November which is obviously up in the air at the moment. We still don’t know.’

The former Manchester United midfielder also said that travel across Europe could be a huge burden on UEFA as they try to plan the upcoming competitions.
‘It’s a little bit difficult for international matches because you have to travel and there may be quarantines still in effect then,’ he added.
‘And then we go into March which will be the only other time for competitive games that you will have before you go into the tournament.’
UEFA are set to meet on June 17 to assess their next steps in bringing back competitions and international football.
