While I personally would have selected Andy Carroll to start against Ukraine, Danny got the nod as Roy Hodgson kept faith with him and he certainly put in a shift, although he is still a young player to play so isolated, which was due in part to the English tactics of sitting deep. Ahead of the Quarter-final match versus Italy, word has it that Danny will retain his starting berth. Here is a clip, courtesy of the English Football Association of Danny ahead of this match answering questions on Twitter.
Danny's quick thinking and skill provided the 3rd English goal of their 3-2 victory over Sweden at the EURO 2012 tournament in both Poland & Ukraine. He has started both games for the 3 Lions under new manager Roy Hodgson and has definitely repaid the faith shown in him ahead of the next match vs Ukraine, where England will need at least a draw to ensure advancement and Wayne Rooney is eligible to play after serving his suspension.
Daniel Nii Tackie Mensah "Danny" Welbeck (born 26 November 1990 in Manchester, England) is a Ghanaian English international footballer who plays for Manchester United. His regular position is as a winger or a striker.
Danny recovered from a late season injury to be in the starting lineup for England vs. France in their opening Euro 2012 match which was drawn 1-1. He seems to have benefitted from being at Manchester United so much and should be an integral part of not only this tournament but the qualifiying campaign for Brazil 2014!
Will add more here soon on this exciting player who has been ruled out of England's next International matches after hurting a hamstring in Manchester United's 8-2 thrashing of Arsenal over the weekend.
Danny picke up right where he started the season and scores 2 goals in his second match since returning. Fortunately for Manchester United, Ashley Young scored a last gasp 3rd to salvage a tie against FC Basel. Read more here via soccernet:
Danny is in the 24 Man England Squad for the October 7th, 2011 match vs. Montegro:
Danny finally scored again for Man Utd as they moved back in front of Manchester City with a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa. His running off the ball and work-rate were top knotch. He will definitely continue to improve!
