Brits re-living his Giggs moment during training at Colorado Rapids' Dicks Sporting Arena on Tuesday.
. . . as Swans prepare for league opener at QPR
Leon Britton highlighted Swansea City’s battling qualities ahead of Saturday’s Premier League opener at QPR.
The Swans were held 3-3 in their final pre-season fixture as they battled back from 2-0 down at half-time before a strong comeback saw them take the lead.
A late equaliser denied the Swans victory, but Britton feels the team spirit shown in that friendly will serve the team well ahead of Saturday’s trip to Loftus Road.
"We were disappointed to go 2-0 down in the first half against Stuttgart,” said Britton, who came through his first 90 minutes of pre-season against the Bundesliga outfit.
“But we showed good character to come back and we are a little disappointed to concede a goal after we had taken the lead.
“Our shape wasn’t great in the first half and we gave them too many opportunities.
“But in the second half we calmed down a lot more and that gave us a chance to get back into the game.”
Having lost at Loftus Road last season in what proved one of the few setbacks in an otherwise spectacular campaign, the Swans are looking to get off to the perfect start against Mark Hughes’s side.
And Britton revealed the squad are hoping to erase the memories of the 3-0 defeat last April.
“I think we definitely owe the fans one,” he said. “It was probably our worst performance of last season but it’s going to be a tough game because they have made a lot of signings.
“But we’ll work on things this week and go there looking to get a positive result.”
Britton also paid tribute to former midfield team-mate Joe Allen, who has left to reunite with Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.
He added: “Obviously we’re disappointed to lose Joe, but it’s a great chance for him and we’re all delighted for him and everyone in the squad wishes him all the best.
“I’ve played alongside him since he was 16 - it’s been a joy to watch him grow over the last few years and we really hope it works out for him up there.”
Meanwhile, Swans Under-21s take on Merthyr Town on Tuesday night at Penydarren Park (7.45pm).
Swans squad: David Cornell, Oliver Davies, Sam Evans, Scott Tancock, Daniel Alfei, Luke Llewellyn, Kurtis March, Nathan Waters, Henry Jones, Alex Bray, Josh Sheehan, Gwion Edwards, James Loveridge, Rory Donnelly, Alex Samuel, Joseph Jones, Kurtis March, Tom Atyeo.
