Wayne Rooney lavishes praise on Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck
Wayne Rooney is full of praise for Arsenal and England striker Danny Welbeck
Wayne Rooney has heaped praise on Danny Welbeck after the striker helped fire England to a 3-1 victory over Slovenia on Saturday.
After a goalless first half, the visitors took the lead in the Euro 2016 qualifier at Wembley in the 57th minute when Jordan Henderson headed in an own goal.
He’s shown he’s a top forward and he’s getting better
England drew level two minutes later, however, when Rooney scored a penalty as the striker marked his 100th cap with a crucial goal.
Arsenal striker Welbeck made it 2-1 with scuffed shot before slotting in the third in the 72nd minute to wrap up the win.
“He doesn’t have to prove [anything] to anyone,” Rooney said.
“He’s shown he’s a top forward and he’s getting better. The more games he plays he’s getting better.
“He’s scoring goals for England, for Arsenal and he deserves all the credit he gets because he’s a fantastic football player.”
