Craig Bellamy has been recalled to the Wales squad for next week's friendly with Austria in Swansea, manager Chris Coleman has revealed.

The 33-year-old Cardiff City forward missed the last four matches of Wales' 2014 World Cup Brazil™ qualifying campaign, sparking speculation he was considering his international future.

West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison also returns after overcoming a persistent knee injury, but goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey remains sidelined due to a serious knee problem.

Wales are currently second-bottom in Group A of European Zone qualifying for Brazil 2014, seven points off a potential play-off place, while Austria are fourth in Group D.
