The first Wales squad since the tragic death of former manager Gary Speed has been named with Craig Bellamy set to feature alongside Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.

The Dragons take on Costa Rica in a memorial match for Speed at Cardiff City Stadium on Wednesday February 29 which could be the last of Liverpool striker Bellamy’s international career.

The 32-year old was talked out of international retirement by Speed and his death in November left him shattered but he will suit up, quite possibly for the last time for Wales.

Tottenham ace Bale and Arsenal midfielder Ramsey will join Bellamy with the likes of Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, Aston Villa centre-half James Collins, QPR defender Danny Gabbidon and Swansea City trio Ashley Williams, Neil Taylor and Joe Allen in tow.
