Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck scored two goals in England 3-1 victory over Slovenia on Saturday evening.
The result means Roy Hodgson’s side maintain their 100 per cent record as they look to qualify for the European Championships in 2016.
Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney equalised after Jordan Henderson had put through his own net, before his former club teammate Welbeck scored twice to put the game to bed.
The first-half was anything but enjoyable but things got considerably more lively after the break with plenty of incident and a performance from Arsenal’s £16million man that suggests he could become a goal-scoring great for both club and country.
Many United fans questioned Welbeck’s summer sale and with Radamel Falcao struggling for fitness and the England man scoring five goals for the Gunners and five more for his country who can blame them?
Arsenal supporters are beginning to believe they pulled off a fantastic coup by bringing the 23-year-old in this summer and the responses from Twitter following Saturday’s match echoed that sentiment.
Welbeck was always a fine finisher at United, he just rarely had the chances to prove that as his outstanding work-rate too often saw him played out wide. But now he is a centre-forward and both Arsenal and England are reaping the rewards.
After the game we took to Twitter to see what fans made of Welbeck's performance and below you can read a selection of what we found:
Great to see Welbeck get two goals yesterday. I'd settle for that against his former club next week.— Daniel Clay (@DanielClay) November 16, 2014
sit back and watch Welbeck be an England great— MasterBaker (@_Mbuthia_) November 16, 2014
He's not a great scorer of goals yet but he's a scorer of great goals. Welbeck.— Emerick• (@Wxxdy__) November 16, 2014
Now that's a proper goal, Danny Welbeck in an England shirt is brilliant, 5 goals in 4 games for England!— TomMellor (@MellorFootball) November 15, 2014
Hope England rest Welbeck and Wilshere on Tuesday. Both have been superb tonight, can't have them getting injured for the Man Utd game— Passenal (@Passenal1) November 15, 2014
Why did we sell Danny Welbeck, his work rates are outstanding. Let's hope we aren't punished vs the Arsenal.— Joseph William Brown (@JosephBrown999) November 15, 2014
Said it at the time and I'll say it again now. Letting Welbeck go was a massive mistake.— itsunitedagain (@itsunitedagain) November 15, 2014
Danny Welbeck is brilliant at this level.— The Football Front (@ReviewFootball) November 15, 2014
United must really regret selling Welbeck. He's improved a lot ever since leaving.— Andrew Simon (@AndrewSimon_) November 15, 2014
