On target Bellamy thrilled by Wales win
Wales captain Craig Bellamy hopes his luck in front of goal has changed after scoring in the 4-0 friendly victory over Liechtenstein.
Wales cruised to a comfortable victory at Wrexham's Racecourse Ground with Jason Koumas netting twice along with Bellamy and Chris Llewellyn in the final minutes.
The Liverpool striker threw off the shackles - Wales boss John Toshack suggested the he was 'playing in a straight jacket' for Liverpool before this friendly - to have a hand in two goals and score another himself as his pace and quality terrified Liechtenstein all evening.
'I was delighted to get a goal,' he told Sky Sports 1.
'I'd hit the inside of the post and it came out which is typical at the moment. But I was lucky enough to hit the bar and it went in so hopefully it's turned for me a bit.
'A couple of the boys made their debut today and in the second half the heavy pitch took its toll.
'I believe we could have scored more, we had more chances but you can't be too dissatisfied. It was a good performance, a lot of players came in and did well and it's always nice to get a win.'
Bellamy helped set up Llewellyn's first goal for his country and the captain was particularly happy for his friend.
'I was delighted to be in the same game when one of my friends got his first goal,' he said.
Toshack said: 'We can be pleased. We scored four goals which is always pleasing and they were good quality goals as well.
'Three local lads came on and our first half in particular I was pleased with.
'Maybe at the back there were two or three sloppy balls but some of our football was very pleasing.'
Toshack also revealed midfield talisman Ryan Giggs suffered a knock on his ankle.
