BBC pundit impressed with Arsenal player on international duty

Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck featured for England against Germany in a friendly international on Saturday evening.

Former Rangers and Ipswich Town star Terry Butcher suggested on BBC Radio 5 Live on Saturday evening that he was impressed with Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck’s performance for England.

Welbeck started England’s friendly international match against Germany away from home in Berlin on Saturday evening and played for 71 minutes.

Butcher, who played 77 times for England, was impressed with the display of the 25-year-old former Manchester United forward.

"Welbeck has done very well,” said the former Sunderland man on BBC Radio 5 Live on Saturday evening. “There has been some rustiness shown a little but he has worked well offensive and defensively.”

Welbeck is a very hard-working and energetic forward, who always gives his all. The Arsenal man is not a ‘great’ player and will never be, but he is someone who does what he is told and gives his best.

The former United forward recently returned to full fitness, but he has done quite well. Welbeck has scored three goals and created two chances in five Premier League appearances for Arsenal so far this season.

The forward is likely to be part of Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the Euro 2016 finals.
