Bellamy to retire from national duty

By Football News



Craig Bellamy has announced he will retire from international football at the end of Wales’ World Cup qualifying campaign.

The 34-year-old Cardiff forward has won 76 caps for his country and scored 19 goals since making his debut back in 1998.

Bellamy is set to play his final home game for Wales in a Group A clash with Macedonia at the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday night. Provided he avoids a booking, he will then bow out on the international stage against Belgium next Tuesday.
