Bellamy on Davies

Posted on 15 February 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Craig Bellamy says it's a 'privilege' to play alongside Simon Davies for Wales.

The Newcastle star and newly-crowned Welsh Player of the Year Simon are at the forefront of Mark Hughes' new era for Welsh football - an era that could soon see them compete in the European Championship Finals.

Bellamy and Simon were on target on a night to remember for Wales last year when they beat Italy in a Euro 2004 qualifier at the Millennium Stadium. That result put them in pole position to qualify.

Back together for Wednesday's friendly against Bosnia, Bellamy is full of praise for his international team-mate. "Simon's a brilliant player, no two ways about it, an exceptional player.

"He's still young. We're both of the same age and he's just got Welsh Player of the Year, although I'd like to think he he just nicked that off me!

"To be honest, I can't grumble about that because he's a top player and it's a privilege to be playing alongside him in the Welsh team."

Bellamy echoes Simon's thoughts that Wales now have to finish what they have started in Group Nine.

"We've shown a lot of promise and so far we've delivered but there are a lot of games to go in the group.

"We need to keep delivering otherwise all the promise and all the good players we've got will count for nothing.We're under more pressure now not to go and blow it. The players we've got now we've got a good team and we're hoping to go on from here."
