Liverpool's Bellamy named in Wales squad

Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy's international career seems to be continuing after he was named in the Wales squad for an upcoming friendly with Mexico.

The Dragons take on the Mexicans in New York later this month and will be with Bellamy after new manager Chris Coleman included him in the 23-man squad.

Bellamy had retired from international football but was talked back into playing by the late Gary Speed who passed away in November. It appeared that his final appearance for Wales would be the memorial match for Speed against Costa Rica in February but it looks like he has decided to keep representing his nation.

Bellamy will be joined by the likes of Tottenham ace Gareth Bale, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey and Swansea City trio Joe Allen, Neil Taylor and Ashley Williams.
