Who would have thought that Danny Welbeck would have been the last remaining Arsenal player at the World Cup semi-final stage? Ok so he hasn’t actually played many minutes, but you never know he could score the winner in the final!
Arsenal like to keep issuing updates on the Arsenal players still in the Cup, and this is all they could say about Danny….
Danny Welbeck is our final remaining player at the World Cup, and his England side were in action once again on Saturday afternoon.
Danny was an unused substitute as England won 2-0 against Sweden. Harry Maguire opened the scoring when he thumped home from an Ashley Young corner during the opening 45 minutes. The win was sealed for the Three Lions when Dele Alli headed home after a lofted ball from Jesse Lingard.
Danny will have another chance to feature as England face Croatia in the semi-final of the tournament on Wednesday, with kick-off at 7pm UK time.
So who would have thought that Mesut Ozil with the Champions Germany, and Monreal with Spain, and even Ospina with Colombia, who could have got past England, would have been struggling in the wake of the mighty Welbeck!
He could still make an impact, and we really should support the only Arsenal player left in the competition, but is he really our best player that went to Russia?
