Craig Bellamy ruled out of Wales clash with Germany

Craig Bellamy has been ruled out of Wales' World Cup qualifier against Germany tonight at the Millennium Stadium. The Manchester City striker has failed to recover from a knee injury picked up during Saturday's defeat to Finland.

The news is a hammer blow for John Toshack's side, who all but kissed their World Cup chances goodbye with a woeful performance at the weekend.

Either Ched Evans or Robert Earnshaw will now have to lead the line against group leaders Germany. Bellamy hit the headlines for his emotional interview after Saturday's game, but it now looks as if he won't be repeating his performance.
