Bellamy the winner for Wales

An excellent second-half goal from Craig Bellamy gave Wales a deserved friendly victory away to Denmark on Wednesday night.

The West Ham United striker struck just before the hour mark in Copenhagen and it was a worthy winner. He played a one-two on the halfway line, strode forward before beating a defender. He then moved within shooting distance and let fly with a shot that skidded low into the corner beyond Thomas Sorensen. The evening was also notable for good performances by Bellamy's club-mates James Collins and Jack Collison to underline the strong Hammers spine at John Toshack's disposal.

Speaking to BBC Wales, the tireless Bellamy said: "I am just happy to get the win. I was [playing]  a little bit deeper today and it was a lot more running than I am used to! I thought in the first half we were very good. A country of this calibre, they are a good side but we created a lot of good chances. If you look at the 90 minutes I thought we deserved the win."
