Ryan Giggs calls up second Manchester City teenager to Wales national team

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs continues to look to Manchester City’s blossoming youth system to find the Wales stars of tomorrow.

Giggs has already handed City midfielder Matt Smith – on loan at FC Twente this season – his first appearances for the senior Welsh national team, with the 18-year-old winning four caps including against star-studded Spain last month.

With James Chester and Paul Dummett having to withdraw, Wales have summoned another talent from the Manchester City academy by calling up 18-year-old Rabbi Matondo, an exciting winger.

Matondo plays for City’s under-23 side in the Premier League 2 and is said to be the fastest player at the club – yes, even quicker than Leroy Sané and Kyle Walker.

Born in Liverpool, Matondo is dual-qualified to play for Wales and England, having moved to Cardiff as a child where he played in Cardiff City’s academy before moving to City in July 2016.
