Wales boss: Bellamy comeback good for West Ham

Wales boss John Toshack believes Craig Bellamy's return from injury will boost West Ham.

He said: "Craig looked his usual bubbly self this morning and we just hope there is no reaction and that he can train with the team tomorrow and Friday, and we will take it from there. I think all the managers who have dealt with him from a Wales point of view will tell you that it takes a lot to stop him from being involved with his country.

"Hopefully, Craig can play some part in these two matches and that will help him when he gets back with West Ham."

Bellamy, who could face Cyprus on Saturday, admitted: "I am not surprised at all that I am ready to play. I had the operation on Thursday and was doing training on the bike on Friday back at West Ham. I was running on Saturday and Sunday and have done some much sharper work since then, and I feel fine. I could probably play now if I was asked."
