Hughes demands Canada scalp

Racecourse, Wrexham
Sunday, 30 May
Kick-off: 1430 BST

Wales manager Mark Hughes has told his squad to end the season on a high with a win against Canada in Wrexham.

"We have had a good run since the Euro 2004 play-offs, now I want to finish with a win so everybody can go off on summer breaks in good heart," he said.

"My aim is to add to the depth of the squad and I think we are as strong now as we have ever been."

Ryan Giggs is expected to play, after missing the Norway game with a knock picked up in the FA Cup final.

Craig Bellamy is also expected to be fit, despite limping off towards the end of Wales' 0-0 draw in Norway with cramp.

If you play for your country you go out and play like it is your last ever game

Bellamy is keen to play after missing much of the season with knee and hamstring problems.

Jason Koumas is back in training after an Achilles injury, while Cardiff City keeper Martyn Margetson has a back problem that could prevent him from making his first Wales start.

Said Bellamy: "I ended up with cramp but as long as it wasn't my hamstring I am quite pleased.

"I should be okay for Sunday against Canada. It is just nice to be playing and to be training.

"Football is my life so I wanted to be involved, it was ideal for me and it has lifted me.

"If you play for your country it doesn't matter what time of year it is or what game it is you go out and play like it is your last ever game."
