Giggs, 33, has announced his retirement from international football and will lead Wales for the last time in the Euro 2008 qualifier in his home city´s Millennium Stadium, before the controversial Bellamy, another Cardiff-born star with 45 caps for his country, will take over the mantle.

Wales boss John Toshack said: "Craig is something of a character, but I have complete faith in him as Wales´ new captain on a permanent basis."
