Craig Douglas Bellamy (born 13 July 1979 in Cardiff, Wales) is a Welsh footballer who plays as a striker for Liverpool F.C. and the Welsh national team. Bellamy was the captain of the Welsh national side for four years after taking over from Ryan Giggs in 2007, but stood down in January 2011 due to constant injuries. Since making his professional debut for Norwich City in 1997, he has played for a number of clubs in England, making his name at Newcastle United when signed by Bobby Robson in 2001 and has also had a loan spell with Scottish Premier League side Celtic in 2005. On 31st August 2011, Bellamy completed a move back to former club Liverpool from Manchester City.

During his career, Bellamy has won the Scottish Cup and FA Community Shield. He has also been criticised for his behaviour both on and off the pitch, but has accumulated thousands of pounds for various charities and has also established a football academy in Sierra Leone.
