level, Ryan retired from international football with Wales in June 2007 after 64 games and 12 goals. In October 2007, he extended his United contract to June 2009.

December 2007 brought two landmark achievements - Ryan was awarded the OBE (Order of the British Empire) for his services to football and he scored his 100th league career goal in the 4-0 victory over Derby County at Old Trafford.

Ryan crowned the epic 2007/08 season, his 18th in United's first team, by scoring the Reds' second goal in the final day league win at Wigan and slotting home what proved to be the decisive penalty in the Champions League final shoot-out in Moscow.

Giggs' career continued with a flourish during 2008/09 as he enjoyed a new role in the United team. Leaving the left flank where he made his name as a flying winger, he adopted a more central position in midfield or just off the main striker. His importance to the cause was recognised yet again in February 2009 when he agreed another one-year extension to keep him at Old Trafford until June 2010. In that same month he became the only player to score in every Premier League season from 1992/93 to 2008/09, when he netted in United's 1-0 win at West Ham.
