Despite his ongoing injury concerns, successive England managers have called upon the reliable Danny Welbeck – and he has rarely let them down. A key part of the Three Lions set-up at UEFA EURO 2012 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, Welbeck missed UEFA EURO 2016 due to injury – despite playing an important role in the first half of qualifying – and has struggled to regain his regular spot ever since.

It seems that Gareth Southgate has liked what he has seen of the forward in the 2017/18 campaign with Arsenal though, and has realised that a fit and firing Welbeck can be a frightening proposition for opposition defenders. With a languid style that masks his pace, Welbeck can be a cool finisher and has a canny knack of being in the right place at the right time in the penalty area.
