Bellamy named Wales captain

Published Add your comment

Craig Bellamy will captain Wales in Wednesday night's Gary Speed memorial match against Costa Rica at Cardiff City Stadium.

The 32-year-old Liverpool striker takes the armband after regular skipper Aaron Ramsey was ruled out of the game with an ankle injury. It will mark the first time the 67-cap forward has led his country since the Euro 2012 qualifying defeat in Montenegro in September 2010, and could also prove to be his last game for Wales.

Coach Osian Roberts said: "For obvious reasons Craig will lead the side tomorrow night. He knew Gary better than anybody, he is a close friend of the Speed family and it seems only right that he should lead Wales on the night."
