A Gary Speed memorial international friendly will be played when Wales host Costa Rica on 29 February at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Speed, who took his own life in November, made the first of his outfield record 85 Welsh caps in a friendly win over Costa Rica in 1990.

The Welsh FA have revealed that 10% of all profits from the friendly will go to charities.

"This will be an opportunity to celebrate the life and achievements of a great servant to Welsh football both as a player and as a manager," said a Welsh FA statement.

Wales hope to name a successor to Speed before the Cardiff fixture.
