It was great to see the Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck score two more goals for England tonight and it can only help Arsenal when the Premier League and Champions League resumes next week.
I do think these two international goals are really important for Arsenal and Welbeck, because I get the feeling he needed them to keep his confidence levels up.
The young striker has been playing well recently anyway and it is not as if he is on a goal drought or anything, his last club goal coming in the away game with Anderlecht. But that is four games without a goal while Alexis Sanchez grabbed the headlines, so bagging a couple himself will have done Welbeck the world of good.
I really am not having a go at him. He is still learning and getting used to the centre forward role and doing it pretty well I think, but a centre forward is judged on their goals no matter what else they bring to a team, just ask Olivier Giroud.
And Welbeck was playing well for England all night, but a few chances had come and gone before he scored his first. It was a bit scrappy but the confidence it gave Welbeck was evident with the way he created and finished his second. That confidence is priceless.
And with Arsenal’s next game an EPL clash with his former club Man United, Welbeck will be full of confidence and belief as well as a desire to show them what they are missing. How do you think Danny will do against his old team?
