Injured Wales captain Craig Bellamy will miss his country´s final two European Championship qualifiers later this month.

The West Ham striker is still recovering from a recurrence of a groin problem and has missed his club´s last three matches.

Bellamy made a remarkable return from a hernia operation to play in both of Wales´ last two games in Cyprus and San Marino last month. He then played the full 90 minutes, and scored against Sunderland on October 21, but has not played since picking up a further groin problem.
