PHOTOS: Welbeck scores both goals as England dispatch Switzerland

Three Lions Wembley

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck, who recently transferred from Manchester United, scored his ninth goal for England against Switzerland earlier.

Danny Welbeck scored his first England goal as an Arsenal player and his ninth in total as the 23-year-old rounded off a superb team-move with a one-touch, left-footed finish against Switzerland in Basel earlier this evening, Monday.

It was England's first goal of the night as Roy Hodgson's Three Lions banked maximum points in their 2016 European Championship qualifying group, kick-starting their campaign with a confidence-boosting 2-0 victory.

Three top-level attackers - Raheem Sterling, Wayne Rooney and Welbeck - were all involved in the build-up play of the first goal but, intriguingly, the latter ran straight to his fellow Arsenal stars Calum Chambers and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in order to complete his lung-busting celebration.

Welbeck - who also scored England's second - has also netted against Moldova, Sweden, Scotland, San Marino and Belgium.

England are next in action on Thursday, October 9 against San Marino, ahead of a Sunday afternoon game against Estonia.
