Video: Dan James’ brilliant assist as Wales secure win on Dylan Levitt debut

Daniel James provided the vital assist as Ryan Giggs’ Wales began their UEFA Nations League with a 1-0 away victory against Finland on Thursday evening. 

James was subject to criticism from sections of the United fanbase towards the end of the 2019/20 season after a dip in performances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But the 22-year-old has had chance to rediscover his early United form on international duty for Wales ahead of the new season and was a constant menace for the Iceland defence with his searing pace.

James was involved in the Welsh winner as he burst down the left-flank before delivering an inch-perfect left-footed cross for new Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore.

Giggs also handed a senior debut to young United midfielder Dylan Levitt, who looked composed throughout.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, Levitt is currently assessing his options ahead of a loan move this summer after receiving offers for a temporary exit.

United coach Mike Phelan delivered a positive verdict about his two players on the full-time whistle as they helped get Wales get off to the ideal Nations League start.
