Craig Bellamy to miss Wales' World Cup qualifiers
Wales will again be without the services of Craig Bellamy for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia.
Bellamy, who missed Wales' opening two Group A matches after suffering a calf injury while playing for Cardiff, was not included in Chris Coleman's 21-man squad which was announced on the Football Association of Wales website this morning.
The 33-year-old has started Cardiff's last three matches and scored the opening goal in their 2-1 victory over Birmingham on Tuesday before being substituted later on.
Without the 70-cap striker, Wales suffered a 2-0 defeat to Belgium in their opening qualifier last month before being thrashed 6-1 in Serbia in their second outing.
Goalkeeper Boaz Myhill, who played in both of those matches, is also missing from the latest squad as he has a thumb injury that has required surgery.
Aberdeen's Jason Brown, Lewis Price of Crystal Palace and Tranmere's Owain Fon Williams are the three keepers in the squad.
Wales play Scotland in Cardiff next Friday before facing Croatia in Osijek four days later.
