Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck had a match to remember for England on Saturday, but what did fans make of the former Manchester United player's performance?

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.
