Manager Gary Speed is confident Craig Bellamy will still be turning in man-of-the-match displays for Wales when their bid to reach the 2014 World Cup kicks off next year.

The 32-year-old Liverpool forward was outstanding in Saturday's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Norway, scoring one goal with a lovely curling effort and helping set up another for Sam Vokes late in the game.

"I can't speak highly enough of Craig, his work-rate and football intelligence is fantastic," Speed said. "I know Craig better than anyone and I don't think he would be here now if he did not want to be involved in the World Cup."
