They beat Bulgaria with a brilliant injury-time header from Neco Williams after Kieffer Moore's 80th minute goal in Finland.

Boss Giggs assessed: “It is a great trait to have. We keep going.

“It has an effect on the opposition if you keep scoring late goals.

“It was our best move of the game and it came in the last minute.

“You need that desire , quality and fitness.

“I was really proud of the players how they kept going.
