Skipper Craig Bellamy prepares for his new international partnership with Freddy Eastwood admitting he knows precious little about the latest addition to the Wales squad.

Bellamy and Eastwood are expected to be paired together up front for the first time in Wednesday´s Euro 2008 qualifier against Slovakia and if Wales lose and the Czech Republic beat the Republic of Ireland in Prague, than John Toshack´s side will not be able to qualify for next summer´s finals in Austria and Switzerland.

But that is far from Bellamy´s mind, with the West Ham striker revealing: "I have never played against Freddy, and I have only seen him on TV. Because of my family problems last week, I was only able to train with him for a couple of days ahead of the Germany match."
