Steve Morison has welcomed Craig Bellamy's decision to extend his international career as Wales step up their preparations for their World Cup qualifying campaign against Mexico in New York this weekend.

Liverpool striker Bellamy, 32, had hinted that he was considering retiring from the international game following the death of late Wales manager and close friend Gary Speed in November. Many expected the 68-cap forward to step down after February's defeat to Costa Rica, a game staged in Speed's memory.

Norwich striker Morison is delighted to see the veteran forward involved in America, saying: "Craig wants to get to the World Cup more than anybody, especially because Gary Speed was a good friend of his. He feels he still has something to prove and has a lot to offer... I can't see him retiring from Wales any time soon. Long may that continue."
