Bellamy named in Wales squad for Mexico

Chris Coleman has named his 23-man squad for Wales' match against Mexico at the end of the month. It's the first time the Wales manager has taken charge of picking the squad. Although already appointed, he decided to take a back seat for the Gary Speed Memorial match against Costa Rica in February.

Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy, 32, is included, a sign that he may continue his Wales career into the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign. He'd previously admitted he was considering his international future after Speed's death.

Wales face Mexico in New Jersey, USA on 27 May, before qualifying begins in September, against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Wales squad to face Mexico:

  • J Brown, L Price, R Taylor; D Blake, N Eardley, C Gunter, A Matthews, S Ricketts, N Taylor, A Williams; J Allen, A Crofts, D Edwards, A King, J Ledley, A Ramsey, D Vaughan; G Bale, C Bellamy, S Church, S Morrison, H Robson-Kanu, S Vokes
